Tag You're It! Berry Sweet

How are you today?  Keeping busy?  I know I am.  I've been trying to spend a little time every day in the garden getting things started.  I figure if I take it slow it won't wear me out.  Most of the time the whole family does it all in a weekend - that's just not working out this year. Everyone has their own agenda and if I put things off  there wont be much picking later! LOL!

A new challenge begins at Tag You're It today!   I love tags!  I know .. I know.  I've said that a billion times.... but I really do.  There is something about transforming a small scrap of paper into a bitty work of art that fascinates me.   

Take this beauty from Lynn Put today!  So many perfect little details that just delight me.  I love the strawberry with the two color "berry" sentiment, and that perfect bit of gingham on bottom and top.  This has such a homey country feel,  And how about that second tag on back, that little slip of red peeking out from under?    If you look really close you'll see that Lynn even stamped the strawberry image on that!
SO how to make this one my own?  I kept with the berry theme and layout.   Instead of red trims I kept to blue.  I added a bit of glitterly "sugar" to the berries and a lacy border to the bottom of the tag. 
Now it's your turn!  I know you have a berry stamp set somewhere in your collection!  Dust it off and get stamping!    You can link up your project and see other samples from the design team HERE at Tag You're It Challenge!

I love this in shades of blue. It really makes the berries and leaves pop! And your glittery "sugar" is a great idea!
