Tag Tuesday Challenge #45 -- Stuck on Collage

This week's  challenge really combines two ideas that have been floating around in my head:  One is to make a collaged tag.  The other is to use stickers. 
I am sure all of us have some stickers stashed away somewhere. I know I have quite a bit -- I like my stickers.   So I've given myself permission to use them in this week's challenge:
Create a collaged tag using at least one sticker.
(For my tag I used an old 7 Gypsies package.   I ended up not covering up the tab because I thought it fit in with my collage.  My stickers include my compass, two postage stamps, heart, metal label as well as my measuring tapes.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So glad to see so many participants last week.  I think it was a record number of participants.   Also glad to see not one single tag with a little bit of color added in -- everyone strictly adhered to the black and white only theme:):) 
Mr. Linky seems to be a hit.  I'm thrilled that worked out.  If you have any problems with using it, just send me an e-mail, and I'll be happy to help out.

Lovely tag! You have some wonderful stickers. I am going to have to dig. I think I only have cute stickers that the kids buy when I go to the stamp store. :)

Your tag is really beautiful in this collage style!! AND you even did some recycling...
Nice theme this week and I reckon there are a lot of ways to interpret 'stickers'. It's going to be exciting to see!

Love your collaged tag, Louise! Since I have an obsession with Paris, most of my stickers are Paris-related. This challenge was so much fun and I actually (finally) got Mr. Linky to "linky" to my post!!!!!

Can't wait to see all the tags this week.

I've had a container of stickers for a very long time, and it was fun choosing the ones to use on this tag!
