A grey day

I created this layout using the first October sketch at Sketches in Thyme:

I followed the sketch but used tags instead of the two smaller photographs. 

My favourite part of this layout is the beaded thread, which I found in my stash.  I used it for the tassels on the tags and also for the butterfly trail:

I'd like to enter my layout in these challenges:

* Butterfly Challenge ~ add a tag with butterflies
* Scrapbook Fantasies ~ create a layout using tags
