TYIC#28 - Fly A Kite

So do you love tags?  You know I do!  A new challenge begins at Tag You're It today!  Our muse this time is Jen Mitchell with this little cutie!  The first thing I do when I see the challenge photo is give it a good once over... what do I love about it..

Well I think that bear is adorable - isn't it colored beautifully?  Then I focused on the balloons and the twine... and last the neat way she added the sentiment on that double ended banner.

Sometimes it's easy to see how the inspiration photo influenced me, other times not so much.  I always want to make something similar, but different enough so that it can hold it's own.   

So here's how I stayed the same... Balloons fly, so do kites and I colored my image and kept it in bright colors just like Jen.   


 I added some sparkly sequins and a die cut inlaid sentiment.
Now it's your turn!   What will you make? Something similar or something differnet?  You can spin it any way you like!  We can't wait to see your designs linked up - and you can see more samples from the design team to get you motivated here at Tag You're It Challenge.
