My mini album with all the PDE Challenges questions so
far this year! I love it! 
I chose to create tags for all of year's Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges and I'm putting them together in a mini album. (But that's just me. You can create any type of project you want to participate in our challenges.)  I always answer each week's question on the back of my tag and mark if with the date and Week. I also add the theme at the top. This is something that is so fun to do! I figure years from now the grandkids or great-grandkids may get a kick out of my tags and what I wrote about.  Remember, all of the PDE Challenges are open for submissions through the year until December 31, 2012. So everyone has a chance to jump in or catch up at any time in case you also want to make the challenges into some sort of memory book or journal. Just a though. :)
