I knew exactly which photos I wanted to use when I saw the color scheme, the trees and the backpack. Couldn't resist the cuteness of my little baby girl (this was 14 years ago!!) and her creative solutions.
Ugly papers were used for matting photos and fussy cut for trees and star tiles on the bottom. I inked the backpack embellie to make it green instead of blue. I wanted to use more of the paper, but.....grossness alert....My husband's cat threw up on it. So...sorry. :(
I used my Silhouette SD to cut the title, and then i mounted it on two layers of card stock which I distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink. I also 'stitched' around each mat with a Zig marker. Simple, but effective, no?
