Diva Challenge #154

The Diva is calling this week’s challenge a “Valentangle” where we are to do a tangle inspired by Valentine’s Day.  I have been thinking about this for a few days, trying to decide what I wanted to tangle. The word love, some hearts, blah, blah, same old, same old, nothing was really clicking. Then it hit me! I have always thought it was fun that Arizona became the 48th state on February 14th, 1912 and I have wished people a “Happy Arizona Statehood Day!” for many years. I NEEDED to do an Arizona theme tangle. So I used the state outline and state flag as a string, added some color (the state colors of course) and there you have it! So I wish you a Happy Arizona Statehood Day (OK, OK and a Happy Valentine’s Day too).  🙂


Some Arizona State Symbols:

  • Amphibian – Arizona Tree Frog
  • Bird – Cactus Wren
  • Fish – Apache Trout
