Scrapbook Tag - Queen Bee

How about scrapping mini pics of your family as a tag? I thought this would be a great idea to do so that I could make a collection of them and find a nice box to alter and put them in. What do you think? This one is for Becca (eldest grandaughter) who is 13 going on 20 (aren't they all at this age?).

This was inspired by the Stampsmith Challenge - Royalty, Colour Q - poppy, coral, blushing bride , espresso  and vanilla (this transferred to the colour DIs listed below), Gingersnaps Creations - Kings and Queens

Tag and small frame made from TH tag and bookplates die
Invoke stamps - honeycomb and mini tag
Scrollswork Stamps - face, crown and ornate capital letters
Hessian and netting for masking and inking the background
DIs spun sugar, tattered rose, barn door, frayed burlap, vintage photo and black soot
Two bee stamps from my collection (I have loads of them - I wonder why????)
Making Memories - metal crown
7 Gypsies - word stamps
Mini bees downloaded and cut out.
Bias binding, one piece dyed with the pinks and red DIs

Other challenges to have fun with -
Crafty Emmas - Bold and Bright
Totally Gorjuss - as you like it - well I think Becca is totally gorjuss
Paperplay challenges - Stamp it out
Theme Thursday - Family
Dezinaworld - Charming - again I think Becca counts here and the metal crown charm
Sarah Hurley - Die Cuts

So, have a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
