Here is what I plan to do with this series:
Make tags for my home that inspire me.  I will post them on bulletin boards, the fridge, or just put them on shelves and other areas.  Then, when I'm walking by, I hope they will lift my spirits, keep me from getting to overwhelmed with life's day-to-day problems, and just brighten up my life!  So, thank you Janis for a wonderful way for me to refocus on what's important to me and my family.
This was Week #1 (January 6th, 2012):
Love of Self:

Paper: Card stock from my stash.  Both came from the same 8x8 pad, but I no longer have the cover.
The pink scallop is also from a scrap.  The pink inside sentiment (I know it looks yellow, 
but I think there is something wrong with my picture editing software) is from Colorbok Pastel cardstock pack.
Ribbon: hot pink zig zag from Wrights
Flowers: hot pink roses from Prima Flowers
Bling: flat dazzle gems (from Hobby Lobby)
Stamp: "Love" from Encouraging Thoughts by Cardz TV Stamps  Ink - Staz On Black
Cricut Cuts: Elegant Edges swirl 2 oblong both pieces are cut at 5.25".  I joined them together to form a card type tag by adhering the back to the front with score tape inserting the ribbon between the two layers.
I really enjoyed working on this tag.  Thank you Janis for the inspirations.
