Drag&Drop is working for ScatterViewItem but not for Label

I use this method to drag a Label:

private void Label_PreviewContactDown(object sender, ContactEventArgs e)
        {

                FrameworkElement findSource = e.OriginalSource as FrameworkElement;
                Label draggedElement = null;

                while (draggedElement == null && findSource != null)
                {
                    if ((draggedElement = findSource as Label) == null)
                    {
                        findSource = VisualTreeHelper.GetParent(findSource) as FrameworkElement;
                    }
                }

                if (draggedElement == null)
                {
                    return;
                }

                SourceFile data = draggedElement.Tag as SourceFile;



                data.DraggedElement = draggedElement;

                ContentControl cursorVisual = new ContentControl()
                {
                    Content = data,
                   // Style = manager.window.FindResource("CursorStyle") as Style

                };

                List<InputDevice> devices = new List<InputDevice>();
                devices.Add(e.Contact);


                ItemsControl dragSource = ItemsControl.ItemsControlFromItemContainer(draggedElement);

                bool startDragOkay =
                    SurfaceDragDrop.BeginDragDrop(
                      dragSource,                 // The ScatterView object that the cursor is dragged out from.
                      draggedElement,             // The ScatterViewItem object that is dragged from the drag source.
                      cursorVisual,               // The visual element of the cursor.
                      data, // The data attached with the cursor.
                      devices,                    // The input devices that start dragging the cursor.
                      DragDropEffects.Move);      // The allowed drag-and-drop effects of the operation.

                if (startDragOkay)
                {
                    e.Handled = true;
                    draggedElement.Visibility = Visibility.Hidden;
                }

        }

Exactly the same code works for ScatterViewItems, but if I try this on Label it doesnt. Any hints?

There is no sense in using routed events strategy, everything is plain:

FrameworkElement ds = (FrameworkElement)sender;  
//... data, cursor and devices
var dragCursor =
            SurfaceDragDrop.BeginDragDrop(
              ds,
              ds,
              cursorVisual,
              data,
              devices,
              DragDropEffects.Move);
if (dragCursor != null)
    e.Handled = true;

I tested it with Surface Toolkit, so there can be some differences.
