Read in the Garden Tag

I didn't have time to play last week at Tag Tuesday where  Statues was the theme.
I had a delayed start trying to figure out which statue to use when it occurred to me that my husband gave me a lovely garden statue for Mother's Day two years ago.  It sits on a bench where a reader is invited to sit.  I decided to incorporate a photo of the statue in my tag.

We're a family of readers and I have a minor in Library Science so this sounded like a good fit not only for Tag Tuesday but for a few challenges I found over at Paper Playful.

Although it kills me to tear up a book, this particular page came as backing on a pack of flowers.  A good base for my tag, with a pic of the statue on top.

Among my favorite things are my home and garden.  So the statue and trims represent love of reading and the garden. The brick (from the embossing folder) represents our home.

Well, now that you've found us, you will HAVE to stay!! We're like that at OG. Love your book tag - I'd like to use it for a book mark but the bobbles might be a bit fat!! If I could find a statue like yours, I'd put it in my garden too. Lovely work. Thanks so much for playing with us.
