I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

Tim Times Ten Challenge - Day 4

Wow..... we're almost halfway done.  And this has really been a good challenge for me.  Being that I'm hours behind everyone else and trying to get this done on time with all my other activities.
So, here we are on Day 4.  Today's theme is Spring Break!Todays challenge is to create an accordion tag.  The accordion tag must have 4 panels like the picture above. The accordion must be a folded accordion using one piece of cardstock to create the 4-paneled tag. The accordion tag should be embellished to depict Spring/Spring Break fun, sun, and activities. Lastly, your tag should include at least one cut out word which has had its edges inked.

I pulled out my old faithful sizzix letters... yes, I'm still using them.  The font is "Big Top".  I cut the letters in white glitterstock paper and inked the edges in a pink chalk ink for some definition.  I used the word "FIESTA"  ... since here in the Ole Pueblo, its Fiesta season.  Cinco de Mayo is coming up, so this little tag is just in time for the activities to come.

The paper used was from a Tim Holtz paper stack.
Take a look at the challenge website to see more of what its entailing and what the others have created:
