Tag Tuesday and a Gingersnap Creations Challenge


We've had a very busy weekend that has carried on into the week!  I've finally managed to get crafting a little bit, and made this goofy little tag for the Tag Tuesday #25 challenge, which is to use a photo on your tag.  I just LOVED this photo when I found it, and thought it would be perfect for a birthday tag, coupled with a paper pieced portion of a Stampington & Co. stamp called Party Hat.  To add a little interest, I used buttons to echo the dots and blots in the paper, AND to play along with another challenge over at Gingersnap Creations today, which is to use buttons on a project.  There's some blog candy up for grabs over at Gingersnap Creations, too.... you get to chose from a fabulous assortment of paper from Paper Temptress.  Buttons and paper, ahh, bliss!

Thanks for looking!  For folks in the USA, hope you have a peaceful and thoughtful Veteran's Day.
