A tiny thank you book with tags.

It's Thanksgiving here in the states, so this tiny book of thankful
tags is particularly fitting . . .

Haven't made a little book for a while, and have to admit, I'm really liking
this one.  The papers are all Gelli Plate prints, but I also stamped on the dry
prints with the background from the RRD set Relish Reading.
Used some VersaMagic inks--have you tried those?  Okay, if you know me,
you know I'm NOT a trier of new things, so just saying, I've never used
those chalk type inks before.  Have to say, I REALLY like the effect.  Here I
used Pink Grapefruit and Turquoise Gem.



 When you're pulling Gelli Plate prints, it's always great to throw some 
lace on the plate--you get great textures on the print, and instant
coordinating embellishments, too!

Okay, yes, made a BUNCH of tags!  Used Relish Reading,
Milliner Misses, and Beach Babes, and lots of Bible verses.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
