Carried Away

*This tutorial was written in memory of my daddy. He was taken from me far to soon but I know he is watching over me with angel wings! The ribbon on the tag signifies Brain Cancer Awareness. My father was diagnosed with brain cancer July 7, 2006. He used to love to watch me tag and create so I thought this was a fitting tribute! I love you daddy always and forever*
