I couldn't wait to get to this month's tag- I really loved the look of Tim's and knew exactly the picture I was going to use for mine!
This is Tim's tag for August:
And here is mine!!
This tag uses a very special picture I have of my Mom and my Nanna!!
I love the way my Nanna is looking up at Mom. Like she is SO PROUD of her.
I think my Mom knew it too.
I thought the phrase I use here was very appropriate. Because my Mom really does leave a sparkle everywhere she goes. Her house is spotless!!
I love these acetate / 3D butterflies and they seemed so appropriate to use here.
I also love this tag with the brad because it features cities in Egypt where both my parents were born and raised.
This tag was very special to me and I know I can not give it away so I made another one for my swap partner.
And here it is. Can you guess who this famous person is?
Let me give you a hint:
She is from the UK and she is associated with a lantern.
I love this quote for her because she was associated with very dark times in history and she always left a light out for people to find their way back home.
I also thought these air mail ephemeras were very appropriate for the times when she lived.
I also love the layered die cuts showing through all the inked and distressed areas of the tag.
As I said, this month's tag taught me a LOT about how to use my dies to layer effectively.
Here are the two tags side by side:
Two very different looks but I love them both equally.
Thank you for stopping by and did you guess who the famous person is?
