This is my Day #5 Post!

In this post I have a tag to share...

In my craft room sort out I came across some skull beads and some heart shaped shaker thingies...

I started with a MDF tag which I layered with a piece of black card and then a piece of eco paper a friend had sent me. I had punched the corners of this and punched a heart shape to let in the shaker thing.

I added beads to the heart, distressed wround the edges with Black Soot and then added the metal embellishment and the gold roses. I added the verse, printed on some Fabscraps paper and again distressed around the edges with Black Soot.
Fonally I added the string with two more beads.

The verse is 

“Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.”

This uplifting bereavement poem was written by Mary Elizabeth Frye in the 1930s. It declares that the people you love are not gone, they are all around you.
I will add this tag to the linky...on Leigh's Day #1 on 12th February

Happy Hopping!
