Frilly and Funkie Challenge #10 "Layers of Lace"....."Three Ladies In Lace"

     June brings in SUMMER with it- and travel to see/be with family. Just next week will bring our entire family (of 7) together camping over a long weekend. While the time will be short, indeed, I am grateful we can all get time together because both our boys' work schedules are very full. The girls are both at home for the summer, but since the older is still taking classes, and the younger is a HS Teacher- it will be over before they can say "The 5 Seconds of Summer 2018"! So, I will take all the moments with them all that I can get!
        Again; you will see my own family "modeled" here in this Tag since it mimics the favorite colors of both the girls and myself- Pink is mine, blue is Ashley, and Purple is Holli. So let's get this done...before 11pm strikes and I turn back into a PUMPKIN! lol!

The entire idea came from other ppl: seeing those 3 ballarinas together in the TH Paper Dolls, set my mind in motion with a little "thingie" I made several years ago, but never used it for anything.

The plan started coming together when I thought up doing some pop of colors on the ladies.

And it REALLY took off after I got the idea to put more than just one layer of "paper lace" for the large dress. Alas- doing the same on the smaller ones was too much and I really needed more real lace to fill out the requirements.

MY idea of LACE means lots of things can look like lace, and these little disk beads I keep in my stash of mini bead feathers (def a  pull in my inner Native American Indian) seemed to call out "Look at ME; don't I look a bit like LACE?!"
I hadda answer "YES,"!

Sewing a bit of the lace bits onto the Tag front- Black seemed like it would give a pop to the background- made w TH Distress Oxide (MY FAVE: Vintage Photo) that also got a lacy embossing.

The little bits of Frill- just for the FRILLY of it!!

The bottom TH IdeaOlogy Corners also looked 'lacey', so why not?

You gotta admit: Girls DO just gotta have FUN!

The BACKSIDE- has a sneak surprise in it....
The little tag is from the outside package of TH GrungePaper- LOVE that little included TAG!-
that was embossed from a TH Embossing Folder with one little corner having a musical note (Games??) because we Wives usually have to do a "song and dance" to get them to do something THEY don't want to do but WE want the Husbands to do!
A TH IdeaOlogy Key and a RETIRED IdeaOlogy Bauble rounded this out. Showing that what you will see inside is definitely DOCUMENTED....

The point is made: they are always watching and protecting their LADIES....
And I think I must be a bad example- cause I DO see the girls doing their jobs as "Wife" really, really WELL! I am proud of the homes they have made for our boys, and very proud our boys follow their Dad in taking good care of their WIVES

Oh, my goodness, Lyla! This is the most surprising tag I've seen! I love that you've added dimension to the girl's dresses with lace and pleated 1/2 medallions. What a wonderful display of laces throughout and a very thoughtFULL design! Love this and so happy you could play along at Frilly and Funkie with our Layers of Lace challenge! Hugs!

This is such a clever and innovative use of the rosette dies! I just love the whimsical and dimensional effect this adds to your design. Both tags are absolutely delightful! You are such an inspiration! Thanks so much for joining the fun at the Frilly and Funkie "Layers of Lace" Challenge!
