Squigglefly Challenge

Hello friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
It's time once again for a new challenge at Squigglefly and today we have a RECIPE challenge for you.  
And, the recipe is:
some printed paper, at least 2 brads, and a tag of any kind (size or shape)


I chose this fabulous Cheryl Alger image called 'Backyard Vacation'.
My background paper is from JoAnn's, the swirly brads are from Hobby Lobby and the ribbons are from Michael's.  Spectrum Noir alcohol markers were used for the coloring on this adorable image and the tag was handmade.

I hope you'll come play along in our challenge and if you need more inspiration, be sure to checkout what my team mates have created this week ... AMAZING!!  You can find links to all their blogs by clicking on my Design Teams tab at the top of my blog under the header.

Other challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope the sun is shining for you today!
As always . . .
