Purple, Purple, Purple!

My 1st Grade teacher LOVED purple. She wore it all the time and always talked about how it was her favorite color. I remember one day I said to her, "Purple, purple, purple!"  So when I saw the challenge at Nacho Average Challenges, I instantly thought of Miss Crooks.
This also reminded me of one of my favorite ladies in the whole wide world, my Mama Sheila!  I had just told her I was going to go home and make a purple and gray card because we were talking about her purple bathroom, and happened to stumble across the perfect challenge for it!  I decided to pair it with the challenge at Fab Friday so I could use this adorable tag stamp from my new Chalk Talk set.
There are also new framelits that coordinate with this set in the new catalog. Unfortunately, those weren't available to us on the preorder so I had to do some cutting this time. Bummer! :)
I am going to be sad to see the Designer Series Paper stacks retire. I know they are bringing out new ones that I will surely fall in love with, but I love THESE prints...especially the polka dot!  I stamped the tag twice, one in Elegant Eggplant on Whisper White and once in Basic Gray on Wisteria Wonder. I wish it would have shown up better in my picture!  The background is Brushed Silver cardstock, which is embossed with the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder. I am in LOVE with this folder and it will be my new replacement for Lacy Brocade...sniff, sniff.
