Tag, You're It at Cut It Up!

  Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is 'Tag, You're It.'  The idea is to make a tag!  I chose to make a tag featuring the beautiful art of Julia Spiri!  Ms Spiri is a Shepherd fan and this is a portrait of her dog, Bim!  Absolutely stunning, but what Shepherd isn't?  ;)  Here's a picture of my guy, Luther.

I will probably use my tag in Luther's journal; however, it would be appropriate on a scrapbook page!  It also would be great on a masculine gift/page!  

Check out the video for some tips!
