Fancy Tag

This week the first challenge at the new Sugar Creek Hollow is called TRASH TO TREASURE and we want you to create a vintage, shabby chic or primitive treasure from something that was either headed for your trash or your recycling bin. You are encouraged to use your paper scraps too but they are not considered your "trash" item.

You must show a photo of your trash item on your blog along with your finished project so that the Design Team can see how you got from Trash to Treasure.

Here is my trash item. I made the base for the tag from this Triscuit box. The lace was cut off an old slip that came from my husband's late aunt.

We will give one random winner a digi of our choice to play with along with a winner's badge. The Design Team will select one project as the Top Pick and the creator will also receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

We have a Guest Designer joining us this week along with our new DT member, Holly Young so pop over to see the Design Team's inspiration and then come back with an entry so we can see your wonderful creation.

I am going to enter this project in the following challenges:

The Emerald Faerie Garden - Wet/Dry Embossing
Little Miss Muffet Challenges - Fancy or Lacy
