Flaunt It Fridays

I sure hope ya'll had a great time with last weeks challenge and blog hop. I know that I sure did!!  I am so honored to be on the DT with some of the most talented Ladies! Flaunt It Fridays is an awesome challenge blog that challenges us to 'Flaunt' a cut from a certain cartridge that they assign each week. Of course you can still 'flaunt' along with us even if you don't have the chosen cartridge. Just use a cut similar. This week the cartridge we are 'flaunting' is Mini Monsters and the cut is the skull on page 65. Now I really had to think hard on this one. I normally wouldn't even cut and use the skull and cross bones. Just not my thing. I finally came up with the idea for this tag. I did it all on my Gypsy Girl. I took the base and hid everything and enlarged it to make the base for my tag. I cut three of these so I could stack them so it would be sturdier. The I cut the regular base in black and the layer in this pink. I put some bling in the eye holes. The 'stay healthy' is from Wild Card. I just kerned my letters so they would cut out together for the words. On the back I used a stamp for the lines. You can use the back to write things down to help you with your diet or for whatever you would want to use it for. I took my Croc-a-dile and punched a hole in the corner and put an eyelet there and some bradding cord through the hole. When I showed it to DH, I told him that this is what you will look like if you don't stay healthy. He gave me a really funny look. I think he thought I meant him!!! LOL You have a week to make a great creation for this challenge! Those that joined in last week, how about trying something different this week. You don't 'have' to make something different but it would be fun to try new things!! So hope over and take a look at what the other DT members have created to inspire you. They are just awesome!! Hope to see your creation link there! Hope ya'll like my tag!! :)

Cute! This isn't totally my thing either, but my niece would love it if I made something with this cut for her. I may have to do just that!!

LOL!! I love this!! It is SOOO cute!! It reminds me of the constant reminders I give my husband to eat healthier. He's one of those who can eat fast food junk every single day and not gain weight, but that doesn't mean that his arteries aren't feeling it! This would be such a cute reminder for me to hide all over for him! :) Thanks for sharing :)

Very cute idea. I agree, it's not really my thing! But that's what's fun about these, it makes you step outside the box!
