50th Anniversary Tag

This past weekend my whole family went to Monterey to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary!  It was a fabulous trip, filled with fun and family.  At a special dinner, we presented my parents with a Project Life Mini Album that was filled with pictures and memories from their children, sons and daughters-in-law, and grandchildren.  I packaged it in a kraft gift bag with this tag hanging from the outside.

The frame shape on the tag was made with the new My Creative Time Stitched "Capture" Frame with Arrow Dies, mounted on a slightly larger piece of white cardstock.

I stamped "CELEBRATING" and "amazing years" from the Papertrey Ink Big Birthday Wishes stamp set, and added the numbers, cut with the Cricut Nursery Rhymes cartridge at 1".  I also added a cute little heart cut made with the MCT Stitched Button Dies and tied with thin hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

My little nieces thought it was quite hysterical that I included the people made with MCT's Stitched Restroom Peeps Dies on the tag!  I also added some keys and a label made with MCT's Chunky Jar Accessories.  My parents loved it!
