It's Friday again already and the beginning of a new month as well!! I find it incredibly hard to believe that there are less than 4 months left in the year!!!! Holy moley! Where has this year gone??? As ready as I am for summer to be over and fall to begin, I'm not prepared for all the hubbub that goes on around the holidays. Well, as I can't turn back time and I can't wish the days away, I'll just have to be content with it being the 2nd of September. With each new Friday comes a new project for JustWordz Stamps and this Friday is no different. We had a fantastic turnout for our first blog hop last weekend and we gave away some pretty cool prizes so if you missed it, I'm sorry for you and I hope you'll be able to attend the next one. For now, I have something a little different for you. Kim asked us to create tags this week but that was the only guideline. We could use any kind of theme for our tags that we wanted... sort of an "anything goes" kind of thing except that it had to be a tag. I just can't say enough about the versatility and ease of using these stamps. I'm not sure now how I ever got along without them and I'm really looking forward to seeing what Kim has in store for us next.
It had been a while since I made a tag but I had so much fun with this one, I made a second one that is completely different. I'll save that one for another time but for now, I'll show you the one I made for my DT project.
Be sure to visit the JustWordz blog to see what Kim and the other DT members have created this week. You can find links to their blogs in my left sidebar.
