Bright Tag and Birthday Wishes

Hello friends
Did I say tag? I'm becoming obsessed!
But this is very different tag to my normal style, although it does have a butterfly....
Making this I must have been having a 1970s mix of colours and patterns phase! 
Truth is, I made this on a dark Winter's night at the beginning of the year and
was craving warmth and colour.
This project has just appeared in the Spellbinders Idea Gallery, it features the very 
useful Labels Twenty-Four amongst other lovely dies.  All the details can be found here.
Today is a special day - my youngest son Elliott is sweet 16!
Today just him and I are going to London.  We are having a lunch in Covent Garden 
and I've also booked tickets for the theatre.  
We are going to see The Mousetrap.
Elliott has never been to the theatre before, we only just realised that he's seen countless films and the odd pantomime but never a proper theatre production.  
I decided he should see a classic - well, it has been running since 1952!  
Shhhh we must not reveal who did it!! 
I will be sure to post photos, talking of photos - this is Elliott on his 15th Birthday with Bella...
I'm not sure who has grown the most!
I've added more brilliant products to my Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™  shop,
please click the link or use the one on my the right hand sidebar.  
Also some special sticky news tomorrow....

Have a lovely weekend dear friends.

Hi Christine,
and Happy Birthday to Elliott. I hope he enjoys his day today, especially the trip to London. Your tag is very bright and cheery, and it brightens up a really dull day so far. Have a great crafty day everyone.

Morning Christine, I adore the tag it is absolutely lovely, I love the shape of that labels die it is gorgeous and I love the different papers you have used, they go very well together.
Congratulations and a Very Happy Birthday to Elliott on the occasion of his 16th Birthday. I know you will both have a fantastic day in London and I'm envious of you going to see the Mousetrap at the Theatre. I lived in North London when I was in the Army many moons ago and I would go to the Theatre every month, I love the nostalgia in the old Theatres, it is magical. Have a lovely day together. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine, your tag is just beautiful and it does remind me of the 70's (I remember them well!). Love the vellum butterfly underneath to set off the top one. Happy Birthday to Elliott, I hope you both have a wonderful day out in London and hope the weather holds for you. Crafty hugs, Anne x

Happy Sixteenth to Elliot, hope you spend a wonderful day in London together.
