California Dreamin'

I have a friend that is currently living in Ohio due to family obligations.  But is dreaming and planning for the day she can return to Sunny California, preferably San Diego.
In honor of her birthday earlier this month I made her a Folder Tag Holder full of California themed tags (as inspired by my art friend and mentor, Dede - you can see the kits she sells to make these yourself on her Etsy HERE).
I didn't get a chance to take pics of the folder before I mailed it off but I did manage to scan the tags so shared them with you here.
When I first thought of the idea I went on Google and searched for California and San Diego Travel Guides and went to the websites and ordered the free paper copies.  When they got here I went through and tore or cut out many images.  I covered the outside of the book with California maps.  Then gathered a bunch of dyed tags and some watercolor paper scraps and started sewing on images.  I've been having so much fun sewing on paper lately!
I'll get Debbie to take some pics of the Folder Holder for me and share those with you another time.  But wanted to share these with you in case you are in need of some warm sunny thoughts and/or some California Dreamin'!
Thanks for taking a look!
Hope you all have a creative week!
