Family Photograph

A beautiful layout by Melissa Mann! 
"To create this layout, I cut a square of Kraft paper to 10" x 10". I then cut strips of paper from various pattern papers and adhered them to the square of Kraft paper. Then, I adhered that square of paper to a piece of 12" x 12" white card stock. I stitched down the lengths of each of the pattern papers; I placed my photos down and then cut out a strip of Kraft paper at 11" long and backed it with a piece of red card stock for a little bit of pop!  I stitched those two pieces of paper together and then stamped the small sentiments along the side. My title was placed above the stamped sentiment and then I used pop dots on the back to give a little dimension on the layout. Three circles were punched and placed on the layout and layered with a flower chipboard embellishment. I stamped one more small sentiment and place it in the middle of the layout between the two 4" x 6" pictures." ~~Melissa

Great L/O! Love how you went with the bold and bright colors w/the B & W photos. Beautiful Job.

This is really inspiring to those of us with a fear of bold colors ;)
