Nothing Is a Waste of Time

I made this layout several years ago. The lace is up cycled from a shirt I never took the tag off of, that was given to me as a gift. I still have bits of that shirt stashed away--some pretty embroidered overlay pieces, more lace, some meshy material, and some creamy white fabric. I think I got far more use out of it than had I actually worn it, and now I'll have "it" forever {far longer than a shirt would have lasted!}

 The bloom is handmade of layered fabric from the lining of the shirt I mentioned above, fastened with a beautiful fancy brad. The butterfly and sage border are both punches. The leaves are actually from faux flowers, not the scrapbooking aisle, but they work just as beautifully and they're recycled instead of thrown out, so it's a win all around.

I glittered the chipboard flourish in a green that complemented the sort of vintage and sepia colors I had going. I love the lacy border punch--it's understated but adds another layer of femininity along with the lace and crystal. I love the little metal tag frame {I'm sure there is a word for it, but I am having a serious case of fibro fog}.
