I love tags. They are my favorite medium to create! I recently came across Kard Krazy's blog that issues a Tag challenge every Tuesday. Today's challenge SHABBY CHIC. Shabby Chic means lots of things to lots of people -- to me it's an "aged" collage. Last night I had created the "watercolor" flower background working on another project (I used Tim Holtz's technique.) I had a flowery section left over and that became my jumping off point. The great thing about collage is that you can use up the scraps you have laying around on your desk. The fairy girl was a gift with purchase from one of my favorite ephemera sellers. The sentiment was stamped from La Jardin set by Oxford Impresions. A little layering, a little distressing with Shabby Shutters ink - and VOILA!

1) I dressed up the blog for Halloween? What do you think? :D
2) I was asked by my good friend, Kelly, to fill in on her Design Team since one of her ladies had to drop early. So be looking for future posting for KL Stampin and Scrapin's blog!!
