I decided to do a tag for my Mom for her birthday this year instead of a card.  I really love the Graphic 45 Ladies Diary paper pack so I decided to see what I could do.  I used an old manila folder to make a tag (gotta love up-cycling) I took one of the patterned papers to cover the front of the tag and a different one for the back.  I used the image of the woman from one of the other papers to cover the front.  I cut out the stamps and used liquid glass on them to give them some texture.  I found another dogwood blossom to cut out and popped it up with a foam dot.  The roses I cut from another piece and used diamond stickles to highlight the petals and leaves.  I used foam dots to pop these up as well and then tucked behind the roses one of the small postcards that come in the paper pack.  I used momento ink to ink all the edges and also to antique up the small postcard.

Our 2nd challange for MMDT 2014 month of April was to take inspiration from the book The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.  The book is a great story of what happens to our environment went we don't care enough to take care of it.  I love nature and when the bypass was built here in Delaware I really had a hard time with it.  I rarely ever use it.  As you can see on the 1st page the highway has left our wetlands a deserted and dried up mess.  You can still see the beauty of the wetlands at the Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge which I have highlighted on page 2.  For the full story and how the page was created check out my journella page.

Our latest MMDT 2014 challenge was a spring scavenger hunt.  Spring's arrival has been long overdue and much desired!  With a list of 25 items to find I had to get a plan together to hunt down the items.  I visited the local Garden Centers in my area as well as I went nowhere without my camera just-in-case.  I even grabbed the picture of the Forsythia bush by pulling over on the side of the road, after dropping of the kids at school, rolled down the passenger side window and snapped the picture.  (I don't know who's yard it was in, but it was very pretty)  

I decided to go with Mosaic Moments Spring Green grid paper to add some more brightness to the pages.  You can click here to go to my Journella page to see the whole story about the hunt.
