Tattered & Torn

Happy Tuesday lovelies! I have been tagless the last two weeks--wasn't feeling well one week, and then the next thing I know I'm a bit behind on everything!

I really didn't want to miss "Beads, Buttons, and Bows" so I'll be backtracking on that lovely theme.

I absolutely love this theme too. I'm a believer in the idea that real beauty is in imperfection--so my "natural beauty" torn and tattered tag is a toast to that. It is layers of scrapbook papers I love, and a bit of tattery fabric and crochet trim stitched right on. I think I could have kept going with the layers too--but I didn't want to miss another Tuesday!

This one is perfect in its flaws and I'll love it when I eventually make all of these tags into a book!

So glad to be back today--happy Tuesday! ♥
Sandy Leigh

  8. Lovely tattered layers - great idea! I know what you mean about not knowing when to stop adding things to a project - I'm terrible for that too!
