Aussie tag swap updates...

Judith has received her tag so time for the reveal for the month of August, tag theme for the Aussie tag swap was 'The great outdoors' 
In August in Australia, we enjoy the Horses Birthday, Bank Holiday Picnics and we 'Keep Australia Beautiful' for a whole week. It's your choice; make your tag with anything to do with the outdoors!

Had to put that brain into gear for this one I was stumped for a while until I popped into the papercraft magazine to see what was free for download this month link here I saw this great banner said 'Happy campers'. That was it problem solved, its funny how you see one thing and the idea just flows form there.. Printed the banner out on cardstock and fussy cut it, fit perfectly across my tag. I had the little caravan stampin up stamp. It's so cute, stamped that onto some pattern paper painted a little red stripe.. Background papers where from Kaisercraft, cut out a little wave to make it look like a hill. That little picket fence die cut, it cuts so well .. Beads are recycled from a necklace threaded them onto some string.  Have to think about next months now only 4 more tags to go till the finish its gone so quick. 

This month I received a lovely tag from Elaine crafteeowls Elaine went with the Horses Birthday and gave me this lovely tag.. It opens and says Happy Birthday to horses August 1st so clever.

I also have not updated the wonderful tag I received for July's theme of 'Beauty of a tree' from Tanya, look it has an owl in the tree and love the little trinket.. The tree is just so textured just beautiful.
