Hi Everyone! It's November, and the time for a new challenge. I have volunteered to host for Pia and Ash this month because they are both swamped with other commitments right now. For November we'll have a challenge, then in December we'll just have a "Holiday Open House" thread so we can keep in touch during the busy holiday season, but there will not be a challenge.
Okay, so what is our challenge this month??? I had a hard time with this one until the most obvious one finally worked its way into my head!
There are two twists - a theme first, and of course that is GRATEFUL. In the US we celebrate our Thanksgiving in November, and our friends in Canada celebrated theirs a few weeks ago. But you don't have to live in one of these two countries to be thankful, or grateful, for the blessings in your life!
So, first is theme, and it has to show, tell about, describe in some way, someone or something for which you are grateful. My example tag has a picture of my hubby and I, but yours doesn't have to have a picture. It can have a list, a poem, a paragraph, whatever way you can tell us about your gratitude for this person, place, thing . . . whatever it is!
The second twist, is embellishments and elements. If you'll notice on my sample tag, I've got the tag itself, the picture with double mats, 2 diecut flowers - each with 3 layers, inking and bling, 2 chipboard pieces inked and heat embossed with green embossing powder, 5 buttons, 3 fall leaf stickers, 2 ribbons, and jute twine in 2 places. So use a lot of STUFF on your tag, and let each thing represent the bounty of blessings in your life! You don't have to tell about them, but just allow that for each element you add to your tag, that is one more thing for which you are thankful.
My tag is in fall colors simply because the picture is a fall picture and I wanted to pick up those colors. Your tag can be any colors or theme that you want, and I mean ANYTHING! Your tag can be any shape you want as well.
So, that's it for this month! You can find more pictures of my tag on my BLOG.
Everyone have a great month, and go forth and make those tags!!!!
