LMCB 59 "TAG" You're it! - Back to School 2011 Layout

Good morning everyone!!  Today over at Lasting Memories Ch 59 we want you to show off those TAGS on your layouts!! 

I've got a couple on my layout.  The "2011" and the "2".  This is one of those layouts that "Grabs" at me as I am finishing the final touches.  My kiddos on the first day of school and the 2nd part of the journaling says  "You could not say 'Goodbye' fast enough."  A happy/sad moment for sure.  The kids LOVE school and I feel sorry for myself that they aren't itty bitty babies anymore.  ;-)

Karen, from Lasting Memories also provided this SKETCH to follow.  But, it's to help you.  You don't have to use it for the challenge.

I personally chose to use it.  It worked GREAT for my photo!  So let's see those TAGS on your layouts this week!!  You have until Saturday, October 15th @ 9pm EST to link up.  Excited to see what you can do!!

I am also entering this into the Getting Scrappy Ch 18 - "Get INKY" - You need to show a Cricut/SVG cut somewhere on your layout and that you used INK.
My Apple and main part of my Title are my Cricut cuts and my stamped apples around the circle and the "2" tag qualify for my INK. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Have a great day!!

Supplies Used:
CardstockSU Old Olive, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, "Summer Picnic" DSP
InkSU Old Olive, Real Red, Black basic marker
StampsSU Tart and Tangy, Varsity numbers

What a SWEET layout, Michele!! Hang on to these beautiful moments with your little loves -- Mine are now off at college (WAY too soon!!)... This layout reminds me of my daughter's last first day of school (I linked it a LMLC in the spring!!) and made me choke up a tear or two!! :) School days photos will do that to me now... I love the layout and I love the color combo. :)

Thanks so much for sharing your talent in the Lasting Memories Layout Challenges!! :)

Your LMLC DT Sister,
