Altered tags...and Arty Girlz

These three tags were made for the Paper Whimsy Tag Book that I hosted this Summer, using Gale Blaire's fabulous images and art bits...(from the Left) Front Tag Book cover, (middle) Inside back cover, and (right) Outside back cover
It was so much fun and the Tag Book turned out spectacular if I do say so myslef!...
Arty Girlz is having a TAG challenge on their blog and since I had been wanting to post these anyway, the timing couldn't have been better!
