Up, up and away!

Hello all I've just popped in to show you what I've made for the new challenge over at the Craft Barn. The last one was the altered dictionary challenge which lasted a year and was great fun now come and see what's is store for us this year. The challenge is called Q & L (quotes and lyrics ) We have a choice whether to create a journal, an ATC or a tag.
The first two words for this fortnight are:

SMILE and/or UP

You need to use either (or both if you wish) of these words in a quote or song lyrics on your sample.

              A journal seemed a bit daunting and I have decided to go with tags, so come and see:

 I chose this song by Andy Williams and various other artistes.
 I sponged some inks onto my tag and the balloons are from an old SeeDee set which is NBUS. The lyric was printed on my Xyron digital runner and  and some ribbon for the finishing touch. I will have to eventually make a tag book to hold them all at the end of the year:)

Thanks for visiting, I love to read your comments!

If this is an idea of what a year's worth of your tags will look like, Val, then we are in for a real treat! It is simply charming! And now you've got me searching on Spotify for that Andy Williams croon so I can listen to it while visiting! Great choice!! I hope you are enjoying your week! Hugs, Darnell
