A New Challenge

I was very excited to be contacted recently by Jackie Rockwell 
who asked if I would be interested in joining her design team 
for a new challenge blog called Tag You're It! Challenge

The challenge involves creating a project that includes a tag 
(so, a tag, card, scrapbooking layout, etc.)
based on a project using a tag shared on the challenge blog.

Since I love using tags on my projects,
I thought this would be a wonderful fit for me. :)

To start off, there's a mini-challenge where we're encouraged
to create a project (that includes a tag)
based on this super sweet tag by Karin Åkesdotter:

With it being the last day of school,
I wanted to give Jonah & Sage's teachers some butter crunch,
as is my custom. ;)

I was inspired by the shading Karin did on the background of her tag,
so I chose some Heidi Swapp patterned paper that did the same thing,
but went from aqua at the top to yellow near the bottom.

I also loved the white border on her tag, so I made a similar one
by layering the coloured tag (which I die cut slightly shorter)
over a white tag (both tags are PTI's Tag Sale 5).
The sentiment is from PTI's Summer Sweetness stamp set, 
which I stamped in aqua mist, and the die cut word 
is one of my new PTI Wet Paint die cuts.

Be sure to head over to the Tag You're It! Challenge blog
to check out the rest of the amazing DT
& what they created for the mini-challenge.

Thanks for looking!
