Tag You're It Challenge #38

Happy Friday!
It is time for the first challenge of 2016 at Tag You're It!

I am the Featured Designer for challenge #38. I had some fun playing with my new MFT Stamps Adorable Elephants stamps and dies.One of my goal this year is to work on my watercolouring skills. For me it is a bit of letting go with my obsession of keeping everything clean and simple and just having some fun.



Head over to Tag You're It and see how the rest of the team was inspired by my tag.

We are heading into the city today to take my parents out for lunch for my Dad's 88th birthday! I feel so fortunate that we are able to do this with them.  On Sunday we are heading up to Sudbury to take Ben and Brooklyn out for lunch for Ben's 21st birthday and deliver some of mom's homemade chocolate chip cookies and macaroni and cheese ready for the oven. Just what two kids in university miss.

Isn't it funny what the all-grown-up kids still want their moms to make them? My middle son comes home and wants my homemade chicken noodle soup...after all these years. I know you're going to enjoy the time spent with your families this weekend! Sweet tag, and so full of inspiration. That little elephant is adorable, and I love the little flowers he's holding. Sweet red balloon too. Love it! Bev
