Tag Tuesday -- Surprise Me






I have a feeling today's theme is going to scare a lot of you -- but rest assured it's not as intimidating as it might first appear.  My idea for this week's theme was to create a tag that had a little surprise to it -- like a secret pocket or panel or as in my tag one that opens up to reveal more sections.  You can go a lot of different places with this idea and I think that's what will make it challenging and fun!   This will be another two week challenge so you'll have plenty of time to think!
My mini tag is created from a stamp by Repeat Impressions.  It opens up to reveal this triptych.  And then the middle flap drops down to reveal a third panel.  I love this stamp!  I can see so many possibilities with it.

Wow, Louise, such a gorgeous tag! How fun to have it unfold the generations like that. This would be such a fun little "favor" to give out at family reunions... a sort of "guess which branch this is", LOL! (But a lot of work, I can tell!) Thanks for such an inspiring and fun challenge!
