Make It, Live It, Share It!

Good Morning!
All this month the folks at Fun Stampers Journey have had a "challenge" of sorts where we are encouraged to make some sort of paper craft project and give it to someone else! We are to take pictures of both the project and the 'giving' and then 'share' it on our blog and theirs! Doesn't sound too difficult, does it! So why did I wait until the last day to do it?! Let's just say, that's sorta how we roll! Next time I'll do better! Really!

So for my project I made a cute tag for the birthday gift I'm giving my granddaughter, Alicia. She is turning one on April 30 but we are celebrating her birthday early along with other family members tomorrow evening. At one year old, she won't know the difference...but we won't be able to do that much longer!


Part of Alicia's gift will be the socks (because Mom requested them!) and the rest of the gift I still have to buy and she'll get it on her real birthday. The cute owl stamp was so perfect for this tag...made me think of a Grandma and Granddaughter! And I used so much pink because this little girl is VERY often dressed in pink. She has 3 older brothers and was greatly anticipated!


And here are all the fine Fun Stampers Journey products I used for this project:
Journey Inks- Sweet Berry & Black Licorice
Journey Stamps- With Love & Hoo, Hoo
Journey Ribbon- Bubble Gum, Satin
Journey Card Stock- Whip Cream & Watermelon Fusion
And I just noticed, the jar of Sparkle Dust glitter (in the photo)...which I forgot to use!
Instead I used some sequins from my stash and 
Journey twine in Natural.
The owls are colored in with alcohol markers.

Now for the 'Giving' part...which won't happen until tomorrow evening....I already know that Alicia will love the crinkly plastic of the package the most!! Her mom will love the socks and the cute tag!
And I loved making the tags! Pink, pink and more pink! Never too much pink!
Here is the little recipient of the gift and tags herself:
