Happy Homemaker Tag Along --- January

Elizabeth was one of my first blogs to visit.  I was so taken with her style and "cuteness" that I knew I must be a follower. 

 First I made one of her sweet little pom pom critters for my daughter, then I made her Peg Snow girls...got carried away with that one and made 14.   They adorned my Christmas tree this year as some of you might have seen.   As you can tell I'm very smitten with Elizabeth!  

When I saw the Tag-Along swap, I KNEW I had to be apart of this yearly adventure.  Elizabeth was kind enough to let me play with all  of you wonderfully talented ladies........... I'm so excited! 

 So here goes!

I chose K& Company Designer Paper for the tag, I fell in love with the colors and graphics on the paper.
Next, I had to come up with a theme, that took some thinking.  Whew!  After wavering back and forth, I found Peggy's Vintage CD in her Ebay shop with the cutest little girls ...... that was it!  

 My theme is vintage girls...they are the sweetest! 

   I wanted a little more to the theme, knowing that it was for each month the song Calendar Girl by Neil Sedaka popped into my head.  For all you oldies, I hope this brings a smile to your face.  You youngsters...you'll have to find the song and give a listen.  

With that *January starts the year out fine*. 

There are a few other items I'm listing to give you and idea of how the tag came together.  
      VersaColor ink for the edges, Stickles for the dots on her dress, paper doilies, envelope punch, colored mesh, me and my big ideas rhinestones, Elmer's glue, ribbon and time.   I didn't think I had any new ideas (you ladies are pretty darn clever) to share so I didn't do a blow by blow.  Maybe next time I can come up with something outside the box to share.  

This has been so fun and I'm so anxious to start on February's tag and see all the others on Monday.    

I will be posting this on Monday, as soon as I figure out how to "link".   Another first for me...... learning all the computer lingo.  Wish me luck. 

                                           My best to all you Tag-Alongs and a 
                                            special Thank You to my new friend
