Good morning Bloggers,

Hope you have had a fantastic week.  Not too bad here.  As usual it is HOT and SUNNY!!  Being a summer girl at heart, I love the sun!!! 

This week at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges our theme is all about the JUNGLE.  So, create any type of project with a JUNGLE theme - either using jungle foliage or animals, etc.  Let your imagination take you on a SAFARI!!!

I was a bit bummed by this one at first since I am using my tags to create an annual album about me and my family.  None of us has been to the jungle and I have already created a tag for the zoo, so what was I going to come up with for this week's tag.  As I pondered it HIT me!!! ... Do a tag about Don's pandas.  So that is just what I did.

When Don and I were making arrangements with the florist for our wedding he saw this HUGE cute panda on display.  Several months later, after we were married, I called the florist and ordered the panda with a huge basket of plants.  Don loved it and that panda has been displayed in our bedroom every since.  I have added many pandas on to his collection.  So, today I honor the pandas with a JUNGLE inspired tag.

Tag:  ELEGANT EDGES, pg 47, Heart2-s cut @ 4.5" using Oblong and Shadow
Panda:  CREATE A CRITTER, pg 58, Panda cut @ 3" with all layers
Bamboo:  CREATE A CRITTER, pg 58, Panda cut @ 2", 3" and 4" using Accessory feature
Card Stock:  The Paper Company (Black, White, Gray, Tan and Brown)
Patterned Paper:  NRN Designs (Chinese Characters)
Ink:  Tsukineko (Tuxedo Black, Cottage Ivy and Rich Cocoa)
Adhesives:  Scotch (ATG and Foam Tape)

I think he came out really cute.  Don really liked my little panda.  So, pop on by Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges and be inspired by the design team to make a Jungle inspired project of your own.
