Ohh, sometimes I get a little McNeely

How about a little modified Flo Rida to start your morning eh?!  I changed my up from "get a good feeling McNeely" because I've been loving Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Holiday Tags.  Seriously, each one from her and all her fabulous guests is a miniature work of art!

I can just imagine being a recipient of a gift with such a tag on it and forgetting all about the gift and focusing purely on this work of art!  So....I decided to make my own fun tag.  This one was easy and I was able to incorporate some of those paper straws that are oh so trendy! (or were at least, I may be a little late on that band wagon...oh well).  Not only was I inspired by this tag of Tracey's, but I was also inspired by this pin of a straw wreath.  So I used ideas from to two to create my own tag and wreath combo, mini and small enough to fit on this kraft doily (Maya Road).  I added part of a sentiment from Frankly My Dear (Casual Friday's), a snowflake and a little twine and wallah!  I hope that someone, whomever's gift I put it on, will feel that it is special and filled with love. <3 p="">
So, with that.  I am entering this into Festive Friday and Fusion Challenge (yay!  it is back!!!!).

Oh, and no one has yet guessed what I am getting my hubby for Christmas, if you guess correctly you win a prize. Check it out here.

Today's Question of the Day is- Do you think Flo Rida really likes Florida (whenever I see his name I think Florida, Florida, there is no place like Florida...)?  If not, what is with the name?  What is the goofiest celebrity/musician name you can think of?
