For my next layout using my March Counterfeit Kit I used a sketch from Stuck ?! Sketches. I did rotate the sketch and only used one photo on my layout.

I used a piece of the DCWV Photo Reel Stack 3 for the main background on this layout.  I then added several pieces of scrap cardstock including the embossed orange piece.  I did outline with a brown sharpie all the paper except for the scallop border.  I used the slit punch to make the scallop border as I wanted the scallops to be a bit larger than the ones from my punch.

I had picked up the film strip and the stamp last month and knowing that I would be using them on this layout when I printed out my pictures. 

Thanks for stopping by.

That background paper gives it a real 3D loo. First glance at the photo and I thought you had made a card and were displaying it with an arty backdrop.
