http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.ca/
Creating and playing challenges is not all about Virginia's View Challenge. Today I am super excited about a blog friend's new challenge blog. Jackie Rockwell is starting another challenge blog called " Tag, You're It!" and I was asked to be the FIRST guest designer! How awesome is that! This challenge has really great concepts and I am here to share the guest design work with you today.

I would also like to enter this for the Word Dies Challenge over Moxie Fab World.
thanks 
 Here are some photos to show you my creating process2014-06-091
Based on the colors of “Tag, You‘re It” Logo, I made a colorful background by swiping the Distress Ink Pads colors onto heavy card stock. Then I made a few die cuts and layered them in assorted ways: layered, inlaid and stacked.

How To Play Along "Tag, You're It Challenge":


If you LOVE creating Clean and Simple TAGS or CARDS, this challenge is for YOU! Each month we'll feature a designer's project for inspiration. You'll link up your creation, then come back to see if it was TAGGED as the winner! All projects TAGGED become eligible for an optional guest designer spot, in a future challenge. Challenge Schedule: Our new challenge and our TAGGED winner will be posted every first Friday of the month at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The challenge Inlinkz will close one week prior to the next challenge.  Design Tip: You can interpret the inspiration tags and cards in any way you please just as long as you use some element of the project. For example; line, shape, texture, color, pattern, sentiment, layout etc. It should be obvious to our designers that your tag or card has something in common or was inspired by the challenge project to qualify for a win.
  
Please visit Tag, You're It Challenge for all the details! My thanks to Jackie for inviting me to kick off this new challenge blog. Thanks for stopping by!
