A Special TAG Project ~ Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello there Blogging Friends!

I was a very busy gal these past few days...and I thought you
might like to see what I was up to.
I was asked last week by the sweet gal who is our
Bible Study leader to make some tags as a
special gift for each of the 45+ ladies in our class.
Of course, I willingly oblidged!

So I got out all my *STUFF* that I was going to use.
Yep, trims and paints...brought it all down to my kitchen
table cause I needed to spread out!
(Shhhhh...don't tell anyone, but my studio is a MESS!)
Then I began by gathering or making tags w/heavy
card stock paper..all in the Fall Pallet.

And here you see above tags that are now ready to be embellished.
I used some Vintage 100 year old sheet music and
Modge Podged it to the tags..I also threw in
some other fun fall hued papers too, to mix things up.
Then I began to paint my own rose on ALL of those 45
tags...shewww, that was a feat in itself...
but...
after they all dried I then added some, bling, fun trims,
laces and a pretty ribbon..and then they were done!

I forget to mention the sweet POEM that was
overlayed onto the papers...
it reads:

PEOPLE, are like Stained Glass Windows,
They sparkle and shine when they are out,
but...when the dark times comes in,
Their true beauty is revealed,
ONLY, if there is a Light from Within.

We have been doing a Precepts study on the Last book of the
bible, REVELATIONS. And our leaded wanted
this TAG to reflect what we are learning about the
7 churches that were given the message from
God through John.
God describes Jesus as our LampSTAND who
lights the 7 churches.  But if their lights
are not lit...what does that mean?
A wonderful reminder to me on the LIGHT
that I have been given inside of me when
Jesus became my precious Savior!

Well...I am going to be taking a few days off.  I'll
be spending time w/my daughter and hubbys'
Nephew and their 2 little guys.
Be sure to stop back on Saturday for another
PINK Saturday Post...until then,

HAPPY Thanksgiving
DEAR
blogging Friends..I TREASURE each of
you and your friendship!
I am indeed very blessed!
