Who doesnt love tags-Graphic 45

Hi friends,
Tags are one of my favourite things to make at the moments. I love to make this style, using some Dusty attic pieces as the top, and bottom... Below, are 2 I made for Graphic 45 using what is fast becoming my most favourite paper collection of all time - Botanical tea.

I wanted to show you just a couple more of the tags I've made using the same, gorgeous Dusty Attic chippies, this time, I've used Graphic 45 - Secret garden collection, another absolute favourite of mine...
Thanks for calling in today.. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, and for those in Australia, have a lovely Anzac day long weekend.
Below is a photo of my Grandfather... Who served in the Australian army for 4 years, he was captured by the Japanese, and spend almost the entire 4 years as a POW, in Changi, on the Burmese railway
