Friends with Flair Friday~

I looooove Unity's Friends with Flair Friday, don't you?!!!
You can visit their blog: Unity Stamp Co and see the amazing line up of friends who are sharing their creations today!  Did you know that Unity also gives away a prize for hoppers who leave comments and also for a participant in the hop?  Isn't that awesome?

I created a mini tag book to give to a friend who needs to know that her friends are here for her.  I am going to write on the tags themselves and give this to her.  

There were a few challenges in mind that helped me create this:
{ippity} blog challenge 'tie it up', to use twine, ribbon, string on your project;
Wee Memories Challenge 'your fav technique'...mine is paper piecing;
and the Ribbon Carousel 'anything goes' challenge.
I loooove challenges, don't you?!!!

I used my new {ippity} set: "time for...friends and wine",which I looooove!  
This mini kraft bag holds the mini tag book inside and I used
Cosmo Cricket "circa 1934" papers:

 Here are the four mini tags which I added a small binder ring to keep them together.  I tied ribbon, twine and string to the binder ring and used my Imaginisce i-rock tool for the bling: 

 I paper pieced this dress and add some fiber for her belt:

 I paper pieced the shorts and t-shirt:

 I paper pieced the dress and the red heart:

 I paper pieced the skirt and used red ribbon for the ruffle:

 Here are the tags off of the binder ring and the kraft bag:

So do you think my friend will like it? I cut apart the sentiment "friends uplift the soul" so that I could put a word on each tag, in that order.

Here are the challenges that I'm entering this project into:

click on the wording and it will take you to the challenge

click on the badge and it will take you to the challenge
