Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another Lawnscaping Challenge. Today is a sad Monday for me and my family. We made the very difficult decision to find our Cooper (our little yorkie mix) and a new home. It has been in the works for quite a while but now that reality has set in, I find it incredibly difficult to stomach. My heart aches for him. He was a very good dog, we just had concerns about how he would be with a baby. I know it is isn’t fair, as the baby isn’t here yet and it isn’t fair to cast him out based on what could have been and that is what I have been struggling with. Yesterday afternoon was a very tough day for us filled with lots and lots of tears carried over into this morning. I have spoken with the new owners and they completely understand if we have changed our minds. I have asked for a few days so I can think with a clear mind. It is hard doing things when your brain tells you one thing and your heart tells you another. All I know is I am being incredibly selfish right now and I miss him so very much!!!
I’m sorry! You guys are hear for the challenge! Let’s get back to it! TAGS! Figured it was a perfectly timed challenge since I am definitely going to need tags for Christmas.. I went the more traditional and obvious route and created a few clean and simple tags for Christmas, while other design team members went more creative and created tags attached to gifts (our guest designer Lalo’s is quite awesome) and members like Tamara and Shien Shien incorporated their tags into their gorgeous layouts…. Be sure to head on over to the blog and check them out. Here’s a peak at what I created:
And a close up of each:
I love making Christmas tags and I have a lot of fun Christmas themed stamp sets to create more tags with. I made a few already here.
I hope you will play along with us. You have until NEXT WEDNESDAY, 11/28 to play along!!! 🙂 Can’t wait to see what you create! And a big huge thank you to Lawn Fawn for sponsoring our challenge today. The winner will receive a free stamp set of your choice!!!
