Scrapbeach Fall/Halloween tag swap

Hello everyone, Here are the latest tags from the Scrapbeach  Fall/Halloween tag swap. 

The witch  tag images are from Crafty Secrets, The pumpkins from Inkadinkadoo  and the last one is a combination of Crafty Secrets and the pumpkin head man is from Hampton Art's collection in combination with Graphic 45. 

The images are great but the packages looked so plain. It  was not a requirement of the swap to make a kit but I found myself gathering supplies. I was on a roll.
I included two jounaling tags, one die cut, a piece of doublesided paper, brad, glimmer star, and fiber. No tag would be complete w/o the fiber.
In the end I had a few rejects. They did not stamp clearly. I believe everything can be saved so I colored, distressed and glimmer-misted.
Sorry again about the sideways image. I took it the other way but it keeps transferring in sideways. Someday I will figure it

Tag Swap

I joined Stephanie's tag swap. Basically I stamped 20 tags. 10 each of two images. In return I would receive back 20 different tags. What a great way for someone like me. Just starting out and have not built up my stash yet. Although trust me I keep adding to it. lol....

Here is image #1... Isn't the owl just adorable. Owl's seem to be growing on me. I think may start to collect them. Sorry the image is sideways. I have yet to figure out how to turn the image around. If anyone out there know's how, feel free to give me some guidance. Until I figure it out you may have to turn your computer on the side to view the

Image #2. It's a stamped image of myself. I was quite the party girl in my day... All right you found me out. It's not me. But boy I sure would have loved to live during that era. She looks like she is ready for a wild night out. 

Here they are all packaged up. It was not a requirement to make a mini kit. I just decided it looked too plain in the bag and I had to dress it up. 

I can't wait for the next swap. I received my 20 tags this weekend. They are amazing. I will approach a few of the artists and ask if I can post their tags on my blog so you can see the images I received in return. Until than, take the time to stop by Stephanie's blog and check her out. Not only does she host this swap but her work is amazing.
