Tag You're It!

At the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog, the first Challenge this month is to Use Tags on Your Project. Here, above, are tags I made for my layout. I used chipboard pieces (one border I cut up for three tags), collage tape, trims, bling, brads, and findings! I cut the bottom of the tags for a pennant look.

My Layout

Sightseeing In Downtown Cleveland

This layout features a few of the photos we took in downtown Cleveland this summer. We were there for my family's reunion picnic, so we stayed an extra day for sight-seeing. We did the museums already, but we didn't see some of the sights downtown. The photos are in the Arcade and Tower City Center (Terminal Tower).

I cut one of the stickers that said "Oh So Lovely" in half, and put it on either side of my middle photograph.

 I used one of my handmade medallions between two Prima flowers. You can see I concentrated on layering on this layout. I know I have a lot going on, I am not a simple scrapper.

Here I layered the ric-rak, crocheted trim, and then added a gingham bow. I thought putting a brad through the middle would be cute. I had to use my crop-a-dile to make a hole for the brad.

It doesn't show well in the photo, but I used clear letter stickers to write "down town" between "in" and cleveland". 

The tags as used on the layout.

Thanks for visiting me today!

I have been collecting other ideas for tags on Pinterest. I wish I had time to try more techniques and themes!
