This is the sketch that I based my layout on.
Paper House Productions- Be Happy Collection
patterned paper, cardstock stickers
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Creative Photo Corners- Black, Crafty Foam Tape, 3D Foam Squares, E-Z Runner Permanent
Cardstock- Black, White
Gold Gems, Black Doily
Circle Punches– 1″, 1.75″, 2.75″
I created a simple layered background, and then cut lots of patterned circles in different sizes, then began to collage the background. Once my photos were trimmed, I added photo corners to the middle larger photo, and double matted it. The other 2 photos were single matted. I adhered the matted photos together, THEN added them as one piece to the layout using 3D foam tape. A few simple embellishments were added and I was done.
