Tag! You're it!

The new challenge this week over at Kaboodle Doodles is tag it or bag it, sponsored by Kenny K. One entrant will win a $10 gift certificate to the store, so be sure to play along!

My tag has already been gifted, a few weeks ago in fact! While Ryan was at Band Camp, each day they had different themes for spirit. One day was Super Hero Day. We have always called Ryan, 'Super Ry' after his addiction to all things Superman related. so when I found out about this challenge and Kenny K being the sponsor, this 'Huge Hero' image went right into my shopping cart! The first day of Band Camp Ryan received an award for outstanding showmanship and team support. So to reward him, I thought he deserved a Super Ry tag!

I cut a piece of cardboard into the shape of a tag and then separated the layers. This was then inked with white craft. Papers are Basic Grey Oxford, did you think I would actually go a day without a Basic Grey creation SOMEWHERE?!?!?! tee hee! hey, I was getting worried myself..... I added some fun brads across the bottom, linen thread, button, and ribbon. that fabby sentiment once again comes from Paulette over at Create with TLC. I then wrote my message on the flip side of the tag and presented along with a bag of Ryan's fave candy. he was happy! and I am proud, once again, of my amazing sons! :)

I do hope you will play along in this fun challenge! be sure to see what the rest of the DT have created to inspire you!

A very thought out gift & award for your son, Jen! Love the use of cardboard too . . . innovative! Hadn't thought of using it for a tag. =) And haven't tried dabbling with Basic Grey too. =)
