It's Summer Picnic Time

Let me tell you....as a school teacher, there's no better time than Summer.  Don't get me wrong, I love my job.  It's just that Summer is a much-need and appreciated break from it all.  I've finally found my way back into my craft room and I'm ready to start making and posting some projects.  I haven't entered any challenges since April, and I really miss having the time to be creative.  Summer is here, and that means crafting, rest, picnics and fun.
I created this fun Summer tag, and I'm giving it to my niece so that she can paste a photo on the back to commemorate our big family picnic over the 4th of July.  She loves to read, and she uses most of the tags I make her as bookmarks.  This one is a little bit too thick to be used as a bookmark because of the thick felt watermelon, but I know she will still like it.
I cut the tag using a Sizzix Big Tag Die, a Maya Road kraft envelope, a Basic Grey felt watermelon, a Crate Paper watermelon sticker, and some cute green and pink gingham ribbons at the top of the tag.  Perhaps she will stuff this in a book and use it as a bookmark.  Who knows?
I had fun making this tag, and hope it screams SUMMER, fun and picnic. I know that I'm sure ready for Summer.  How about you?

Have a great week,
Sierra

Cut It Up Challenge Blog:  Challenge #124 - PICNIC - The die-cut I used is a Sizzix Big Tag Die-Cut for the actual tag/base of my project.  This is one of my favorite dies.  As explained above, this tag was created as a family picnic keepsake for one of my (many) nieces.
