Tag Tuesday Challenge -- Scrapbook a Tag

Today's challenge evolves from a Family Heritage Album I've been working on.  It got me thinking about creating a tag I could use as an embellishment for my album page and then became an idea for this week's theme.
So create a tag as you would a scrapbook page -- use a photo, add a background, a title, journal on it.  Basically tell a story with your tag.  The theme can be anything you'd like it to be.  And this week it can be on paper (which I know will be a relief for many of you:)


The wedding picture in the center of my tag is of my grandparents.  The two smaller pictures above it are their respective families.  And then the smaller picture below is of the children my grandparents had.  My mom is the last female on the right.  (The picture was taken when her brother was on leave from the service during WWII).   The brad with the letter B on it stands for the family name, Braun.

This theme could not be more perfect nor could your inspired tag! I am attempting my first ever scrapbook layout this week and I think a tag will be a wonderful way to embellish it.
bless you!

Louise...I just love this tag. I'm so into family history, and vintage photographs. Your Grandparent's wedding portrait is exquisite. Beautiful tag, and I really like how your have printed text underneath the cut out circles. Lovely and a treasure. Maureen
