Pause Dream Enjoy Tag

Good morning everyone!  Today's post is a tag for my Design Team on Pause Dream Enjoy.  This is Week 16 and the theme is an Acrostic using your name!  What is an Acrostic you ask??  Here's a link to Wikipedia that explains it.  Basically, it's a form of poem where you use the first letter, syllable or word of each line or paragraph spells out a word or a message.  

I have to say that this was such a challenge for me.  Before I could even get started, I needed to pick a theme for my name tag.  It really can be about anything you want -- favorite colors, books, people, describe yourself or another object.  You get the idea.

Well, without further ado, here's my tag:

I actually decided to mine as a kind of "tag card" because I didn't think I had enough room on the tag alone.  Of course, I used our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to make my tag.  I used the image on page 70, card, < Tag5 > cut at 6".  I used Lagoon cardstock for the tag base.  I decided to use patterned paper from our Dotty for You paper packet -- the colors are just so pretty! 

The butterflies at the top of the tag were also cut with the AP cart on p. 41, C1, shift, < Bttrfly1 > at 1" and 2".  The letters on the front of the tag were cut at 1 1/2" and the letters inside the tag were cut at 1 1/4".  The inside mat is actually the postage stamp image from page 54, D4, < Rctngle2 >.  Finally, the hearts were cut out from p. 37, B7, shift, < Heart2 > at 1" and 1 1/2".

Would love to have you participate in our tag challenge.
