I think this is my final quick layout and I’m going to have to do a bit more work on future projects. The picture is of my daughters with their American Girl dolls after they put on a fashion show. The paper is from the same stack I’ve been using lately with a Michael’s rhinestone flourish, stash ribbon, a bigger brad (Basic Grey?), Studio 18 rhinestones, and Technique Tuesday Technique Tiles Scalloped Baseboards added for embellishing. Notice that I used a cutting knife to cut the details surrounding the photo mat and tucked my photo underneath.
Here’s another layout I pulled out that just needed photos added. Who knows why it has taken so long because I love the paper. It’s from an old CTMH Workshop Kit. Instead of a circle photo on the first page in the flower, I rounded the corner of all my photos and added the date in the space of the flower.
