July Tag Swap

The theme this month over at is Holiday.
I've used Paper Mania All Aboard papers mostly on my tags.
I had some little brown paper bag in my stash which I've filled with tickets & tags so my swap partner's can reuse them if the wish. 
I've got a die by first additions which cuts out glasses Anchor & camera & ties in well with this theme.
To make the glasses look a bit more like sun glasses I've covered the pieces which would be the lens with Glossy Accents & I'm must say they really do look like the real ones.
To finish off  the tags I've used again items from my stash swirls & leafs die cuts.
