Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop!!!!

Happy Saturday dear friends!!  It's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and I truly didn't think I was going to have time to participate.  I was right in the middle of making back to school goodies for Farmer's Market and  of those sweet little I was running out of time!  I decided I would revisit the sweet little Tag Book that Melissa Phillips introduced during Stamp-A-Faire.  I just loved that sweet little book and thought I could make it work and continue working on Farmer's Market goodies!

Here's the challenge:

This month's inspiration is all about autumn patterns, textures & textiles.  Think warm & cozy woolens, houndstooth, tweed, burlap, felt, corduroy. herringbone and even argyle.  You can create your own custom patterns & textures with stamps or impression plates.  Or you can incorporate actual fabrics, felt, yarn and other textiles in a creative way.  Have fun experimenting and perhaps stepping out of your creative box.
So, I was busy making the tags and thought, how am I going to fit in the challenge.  Pull out the blue, add an impressed ..base, and keep the felt pocket.  Here's what I came up with:
I used the sunburst impression plate for the background and used Enchanted Evening for the main color with some splashes of other primary colors for fun.  I chose the acorn because it represented fall which the challenge totally screams fall!!

 You can see all of the different tags I made in the photo below.  The blue was a great change of pace!!
I'll post close-ups of the rest of the tags tonight or tomorrow.  I have Farmer's Market in the Morning and my sweetie and I are heading out to Lava Lake right after.  It will be a grueling hike - 6 miles round trip with a 1400 ft. elevation gain!!  I hear the views are worth it!! I'll let you know what I think!!
Hope you have a fabulous day!!!

I just love these tags! What a great job you did with the Teach & Inspire set! My favorite thing is the little felt pocket, but I also love the little ruler and the pencil and well... everything about it!
