Tag Challenge #25




If you've been wondering how I come up with the themes for each week's challenge and are imagining a spreadsheet upon which I've laid out several week's themes at a time, you would be absolutely.......wrong.
The unscientific method I use is to create a tag that I like and then pick out something from that tag that would constitute a theme.
And even though I'm gripped with an awful cold right now, "cold" is not what led me to this winter tag which is the sample for this week's challenge. This theme -- oh, I didn't mention that yet, did I? Well, the theme is to use a picture. It can be a personal one, family one, whatever, just include one on your tag. And what led me to this week's theme was this picture I found in my mother's photo album that I just love! I don't even know everyone in the picture, but I'm pretty sure it's some of her siblings and some neighborhood buddies making a snowman. I love the bucket on his head, too.
So use a picture you'll love -- and your tag will be fabulous. Can't wait to see your photos this week!
