Dragon's Dream Tag it On

Tag it on have a lovely challenge this week - Treasure, and it's been a week I needed my friends around. Been feeling really grotty and been struggling with my son dumping me for his Fiance (almost empty nest syndrome!!) and my friends Elaine and Janet have been on the receiving end of my moans and groans. To say thankyou I thought I'd make them a little something so this is for Janet who is a very treasured friend. And complete a challenge while I was at it!

I sculpted the pot of gold using a technique I found in a book called paper sculpting, I picked up for £1 in the local Yorkshire trading company, then filled it with treasure!

The background is Tom Holtz distress inks stamped with stampin up friends background, then a CDee's scroll stamped in Momento Rich Cocoa and the Text is from the same stamp set. So a pot of treasure for a treasured friend!

What a gorgeous tag for a lovely friend. I'm really sorry to hear you have been feeling a bit down about the changes going on in your life, it's really ironic that we spend so much energy on helping our children grow up to be independent and make their own choices,in the hope and expectation that they will leave home and make their own mark on the world and then we really rather wish that they wouldn't go but stay with us, as they have grown into people that we like to have around.
look forward to seeing you soon.
