Here's something a little different ...

This week, the challenge Joan has posted at Joan's Gardens is to make a tag ... well, here it is in her words:
Make a tag this week and on the tag you need to use something heavier than cardstock.  You can use Chip Board if you don't have any of this wonderful Grunge paper.  The colors need to be old and vintage looking.  You can add metal, cork, flowers or anything you have in your stash.
So, with that being said, I went through my STASH and came up with a "layaway" tag which was an RAK ... some purple Memories Mist which was an RAK ... these awesome school days chipboards ... also an RAK and a Key (I did buy that!  LOL) 
Looking back, I think I should have ruffed up the edges a bit to give it an "older" look!  Oh well ... next time!  I colored my chipboard using Prismacolor markers.
Well that's all I have for now!  I have TOMATOES to work with today/tomorrow and my family reunion is ALL WEEKEND!  Yikes!  The red tomatoes will be turned into Salsa and the green tomatoes will be turned into Picalilli ... yummmo!

Hugs to you all!


  1. Cute, cute, Darlene. I love the key!

  2. Wow Darlene! This is so different for you! I love it! Its just so clever and well put together!

  3. Oh Darlene, so cute!!! Isn't fun to used some "old" stuff. Great job on it all.

    Thanks so much for playing i Joan's Gardens #11 Challenge. This is so fun!


  4. Okay, I've come up with a new nickname for your creations: A'Dar'able!!! heehee! This tag makes me smile Darlene! It reminds me of good old days when there were actual insert slips when you borrowed a book, none of that scanning the bar code that they do now. ;) This looks vintage and perfect to me, have a great day with the tomatoes!! Mmmm...homemade salsa sounds yummy on this Friday afternoon.

  5. What a terrific tag!! Love the dimensional embellishments! :)


  6. It looks fabulous! I love the key and the color of the tag.

    Sorry to be so slow returning comments, but I was very pleased with the outcome of SYTYCD. I think the top 2 both did a phenomenal job. Of course my daughter thinks Kent should have won but I think she has a little crush on him. :)

  7. Cute tag! Love the key. This challenge was definitely a challenge for me!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
