Celebrating 90 years with a tag

The challenge on Tag Tuesday is to create a scrapbook tag, a tag that tells a story.   My tag celebrates my mother's 90 years.  The top photo is of my grandfather holding Mother, his second daughter, as he sits on a harvester (everything was horse or mule-drawn at the time)  in 1920.  The bottom photo is my mother enjoying her birthday get-together a week ago with members of the four generations in her family.
