Papertrey December Blog Hop Challenge

I did a little something different this year ...

I was alll about the tags.

ALL TAGS:Simon Says Stamp Stitched Dress Up Tags

My fam didn't know what hit 'em.

I took this challenge at Papertrey and went to town creating different tags for each gift.

I love the mish mash of colors and patterns~anything goes!!!

The scary part (for my family anyway)...was I insisted on salvaging the tags.

So as they were ripping apart gifts I was on the sidelines gently reminding them to "pass down the tag please".


I think they were annoyed with me~hahahaha!!!

Oh wellllllsssss, it's my thing and I'm excited about them.

I used a pencil to address each tag, so I can reuse them next year.

(got the idea from Jennifer McGuire

I pray you had a blessed Christmas and that this week is filled with joy for you and yours.

We made it through another Christmas, guys...

that's something to be thankful for!

hahaha, pass down the tag please! If you write every thing in pencil....just think about that! Your tags are a work of ART! Beautiful colors and papers and designs! I would have NOT passed them down, taking them all home! :)

Don't blame you for salvaging those beautiful tags, Marlena! Why not reuse them? Now you've got a year to admire them. Happy New Year!
