The Letter "A"

Hi everyone, how gorgeous all your tags look and you've all had such great ideas for your alphabet tags. I can't seem to settle on a particular theme, so I've decided to just take the first word that pops into my head for each letter and see what happens.
So the first word that came to mind for "A" was APPLE and this is what happened ...
The base of this tag was one of a set of 12 really tacky coasters which I hate - well they now have a new destiny! First I covered the hideous coaster with scrap paper, and then I spent a blissful half-hour drawing, cutting, sticking and colouring in.
This week I've promised myself I'll get started on my tag book ... promises, promises :o)

  3. Like Arnoldo I like the vintage look of your tag and I think it is very sweet.
    I have no theme within the alphabet theme either, so am choosing random words also. I was beginning to think I had missed a subtle directive, haha :0) Mo
