Lasting Memories Challenge - Tag You're It! #59

Hey everyone!!

It's Sunday Sunday Sunday!! We know what that means! The guys are watching the game and we are going to get our scrap on!! So here is another fabulous challenge for you from Lasting Memories! It's all about tags on your layouts and Karen has also chosen a sketch for you to use if you would like to!
I tried to stay as close to it as possible but every time I looked at the little envelope with the tag on it I knew I wanted to use the little envelope of hair I have from my son. Well, that was from his first 'real' hair cut when I cut it ALL off!! So of course that would call for more than just one pic! he he he! So here is my take on the challenge;
Can you believe that is the same little man just an hour later??!!
He instantly grew up and looked older once I cut his hair off! 
Here is the envelope with his long lock of hair! 
If you look close, I put tiny little tags on the pics too, kind of like tabs.
I adhered them together with a brad in the corner so you can swivel them open. 
And here it is with the pics closed again.
I even did the journaling along the edges! I know!! No hidden journaling this time, that's a first!!

Welp! I hope you like my layout! Go to Lasting Memories, check out the other DT's pics, get some inspiration and get to scrappin'!! What a better way to get some layouts done than to join in on some layout only challenges!! I cannot wait to see what you all create!!

Have a blessed day!
