French Country Tag

I can't seem to get enough of the Graphic 45 French Country Collection and I tell you I feel as if I need to buy more before they discontinue it the way they did with A Ladies Diary which left me with my mouth hanging open and my brain was a ball of confusion...totally devastated me.  Well I will not suffer that pain and disbelief again.

I plan to use so much French Country that I get sick of it and with three more packs to go its gonna take a while, so I decided that tonight I would do one of their wonderful project sheets.  This one is a tag offered by Robin Shakoor.  It was really easy to create and didn't take to much time either.

I was glad it was quick because in four days I will need to post my next challenge and announce our final February Challenge winner.  Next month every Friday is a winner so get ready...its a sketch challenge and I'll give you a sneak peek to get you started but before I do let me share my tag with you.


Here is the front of the tag.  It has a little pocket and was created using scraps and one actual sheet from the 8x8 paper pad.  I didn't need to use any of the pages in the 12x12 paper pack so there is lots more projects to be made.  Maybe my next project will be either a mini, or another printer tray.  Who knows what I'll end up doing....leave it up to YouTube.



Although the project sheet doesn't include decorating the reverse side, it felt incomplete so I decided to decorate the back with a sentiment.
I added more scraps and then used one of the cut out pages to stamp my message.  I'm not sure if you can read it or not but here is what it says:

life may not
always be
the party we
hoped for,
but while we're here
we might as well
dance!

If you'd like to try creating this little tag for yourself, click the link below and keep your fingers crossed.  It should take you right to the tutorial. 

Well this is pretty much all I have to share with everyone.  Remember next month there will be four winners and below is the sneak peek I promised.
