52 Tag in 2012

  It is time for our challenge at!!!  The theme for this week's 52 Tags in 2012 Challenge is to make a tag with a water animal...which could be a duck, fish, turtle...anything that resides or partially resides in water!

I made this tag in memory of my Mom.  She died of breast cancer and complications from a wound infection in 1995.  When she found out that the cancer had spread to her brain, she decided to go to Hawaii.  She went scuba diving and dove for coral so she could have a pair of coral earrings made for me.  She told me all about the beautiful fish, sea creatures and seahorses she saw underwater.  My Mom passed away one month after returning from Hawaii and those earrings were the last gift she gave to me.

Do you have a memory like this that you would love to pass on to your children and family?  That is why I love paper crafting.  I have not shared this story with my son....and I remembered it when I found out what Janis' theme was for this week.

Please join us if you can.  This is a great way to record those cherished moments of your life with the people you love.

The prize for the month of April is:
