As the Summer Sun Fades...

This week's Tag Tuesday challenge is to use a calendar. I was inspired by the golden shades in this Paris paper to create a tag for the fading of summer into fall. We've also had some cooler temperatures here in TX, so I have fall on the brain.

For my tag base, I used the patterned Paris paper and then adhered the calendar, which I tore from my mini calendar above my desk. I added the gold clock charm to signify time, and to cover the "2010" on my calendar. It looked like a little pocket watch, so I added the gold chain.

I typed the sentiment on my old typewriter and added the vintage velvet ribbon hanger.

It's that time of year again, and I've already been busy making holiday decorations and gifts. I'll have so much to share - as soon as I can get some of them completed!

Well if they are anything like this I am excited. I think your tag is just charming! I have been busy also and know what you mean by needing to finish them! It would only take a little here and a little there...
