Taking a Look Back...

Hello my Scrappy friends! It's my day to share @ the Crafting Family. I thought it might be fun to take a look back @ this little owl tag I made back in June. Seeing this tag and the colors I think of fall. This is a six inch tag and I just Love it!

To make my tag I used my Creative Memories circle cutter and cut out 10 little circles that I layered on an owl body that I cut out using the Cricut cart. Hoot 'n' Holler. I traced out the wings on a scrap piece of brown card-stock and cut it out and layered it on top. My wiggle eyes sit on top of two circles that I didn't cut all the way through so they would be connected in the center.To give my little owl a little dimension I inked the edges.

Spending Time With Family... a SIT Reveal

It's time for another Sketches In Thyme sketch reveal. The Mavens have done some Amazing pages so don't forget to visit them.
As you can see I rotated the sketch because I wanted a pumpkin and cut out my pumpkin with the stripes running the wrong way so I rotated the sketch! I think it worked out great! You can do the same thing rotate, turn, flip, do your own interpretation of the sketch.
