Happy Blog-o-birthday, Meredith

Happy Blog-o-birthday to You,
Happy Blog-o-birthday to You,
Happy Blog-o-birthday to a Delightful Waste of Time

Happy Blog-o-birthday to you!

(yes you can sing these words to the birthday song by adding a bunch of extra notes in there to take care of the extra syllables ;) I decided not to record and show you how it can be done, since I love and care for all your ears. And I do not want to inadvertently scare my lil wee readership away ;)

Fun Gift Tag

But yes, today is Meredith from A Delightful Waste of Time's Blog-o-birthday! So head over there and leave her some love and great wishes! She's been doing something amazingly fun - highlighting an inspiration in her crafty life every day and issuing a challenge to go along with it. So go look at them and play along :) And if the stories and fun is not enough - maybe a free stamp set is incentive enough :P

The challenge on Meredith's blog is to create some fun gift wrapping. I decided to make a little tag using Vintage Label One. The colors were chosen to match the little dimensional sticker. It almost looks a tad retro, don't you think? I had deliberately left off a sentiment, since Princess Leah (no not the one from Star Wars, but the one from Papertrey Princesses!) had set the next challenge: Don't use a sentiment, use a frame! and this is my attempt :)

Anyways, I hope Meredith approves and if you're reading this: it's been so fun to watch you grow. Your journey resonates with me so well, since I came in as a newbie crafter, too, a little less than a year ago. You were one of the few people to jump on board with the WMS RAK Pack, and your enthusiasm is what makes you so sweet! I'm so happy for you that you're part of Cr84fn Color Challenge family and Mona sure knows how to pick her gals :)

Ren-Yi, you are SO sweet. I can't possibly thank you enough for all your kind words and support, and I am so happy that you've managed to play in every challenge. This means so much to me :) This tag is just beautiful, I LOVE the yellow with that blue... kind of a throwback colour scheme, you know? THANK YOU!!!!
