                       Good morning all you wonderful Pinquettes! Mary here with my project for the September Challenge: stamping and journaling. This is our 9th challenge and a really fun one. Since I have twin adults daughters who have birthdays in October, I really have to plan ahead, lol. They love my cards but also love the tags I have been creating.

      It is hard to see in the picture but I stamped it first with the phrase, then added an acetate tag overlay. The rose detail was a die cut with my Cricut to which I added some stickles. To finish it off I added an off white 3 Girl Jam ribbon. Did you know Jess carries this gorgeous crinkle ribbon in the Pinque Peacock Shop? You can purchase some HERE.
     I plan to slip this tag inside one of these cute little manila envelopes. Yup, they are also available in the SHOP. Take a look around and you'll find the Stickles (glitter glue) there as well.

     I plan to add some handmade cards in this recycled cigar box and include the card inside. Can you find the angel stick pin? I purchased the box at Michael's and painted it with black paint then used Beacon's laminate to "paste" the paper in place. I also used some Tim Holtz music tissue tape for a little interest. In my stash I found this metal accent that says "be an original". I find this amusing since, although my daughters are twins, they are both originals! These metal flowers I had just went perfectly.
     The angel stick pin is so fitting on this box. Have you tried these yet? They are my all time favorite Pinque Peacock product. They can get some at the Pinque Peacock Shop.

     I just had to show you the front of my box. While I try to destash some of my supplies,  I came across a strip of this soutache type braid and this lace bow. All I have left to do is make another box and fill both with cards. It's going to be a busy month!
