A tag background as a base for photos, not a scrappy phobia, just a little self-induced challenge. 

 I know I saw this idea somewhere and for the life of me, I could not find it again.  It wasn't on any of my pinned pages. But I know I saw it done somewhere.  It really was fun little challenge to use only the tags instead of layers of papers behind my photos. 

The tags were cut-aparts from two different sheets, one was a Crate paper and the other was an Echo Park paper.  Since there was a hint of red  and yellow in the photos (on my boys' ties) I wanted to use those colors for sure and the rest I chose for their neutral colors.  The hardest part was gluing everything together, once I found it's best home!  But, lifting one corner at a time, you just kind of work your way around the bundle until everything is secure and then adhere the whole bundle to the page!  I did outline the tags for a little more emphasis and added the "seems like yesterday" sticker, plus the little wood veneer hearts (love those things!)

Journaling went around the perimeter of the page, since I really wanted a clean uncluttered look, plus it gives the appearance of a border around the page.  I had left the date at the top tag for Jacob's mom to fill in the date---I know it was the last weekend in October---but the actual date escapes me.  The title stickers are from Lily Bee and that was it. 

Well off to get ready for work (hooray, it's Friday!!!!)

Go forth and make some memories this weekend!
