Now I will say this kit was like awwwwwwwwwww how cute, and then my original idea fell thru and then all of a sudden these tags came together. My thought behind it is "Family is Family: Regardless of the Species"
and I think this tag totally represents the awwwwwwwwww and the concept behind the theme I was going for. This kit is called The Hippo Song and is Crafted by Gina of Kikeka Kits which you can purchase here, here, here and even here.

Here is the tag I made:

Your event ticket will cost you a meer $10.00 - ALL of which will be donated to PinkRibbon.org.

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
