June's Tag is Done!!!

I'm excited about June's tag and project. Inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2012, I created not only a tag, but a mini album. The photo I used was one I took last summer in my dad's garden and printed it in black and white. I used the distress inks worn lipstick and spun sugar to color the rose, and pumice stone to color the faucet. I plan on creating additional pages for the more picture of the flowers. I am also creating a Father's Day with an extra copy of the rose. Hope you like them.
