The Paper Variety: Challenge 7

I am sooo excited that it is Friday! I received several packages this week in the mail with lots of goodies, I cannot wait to get started on christmas goodies! I have to admit that I am definitely all halloween-ed out!

This weeks challenge over at the Paper Variety was definitely a challenge! I wasn't even sure what to create! I didn't know if I wanted to make a scrapbook page or a card, or maybe some kind of altered paper project...But everytime I came up with an idea, I ended up not liking it and starting over! So I was going through my scrapbook pages and I found this page here! This picture was taken at the Renaissance Fair last year in Las Cruces, New Mexico. It was a perfect, cloudy day, and I absolutely love this picture of the girls and my life partner :)

Pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye and the glittery accents are from K&Company. I used sand paper to circle around the photo. I love the look sandpaper leaves behind once you scratch it on a photo. Just wear a face mask though, you don't want to breathe in the stuff the photo leaves behind (yeck).

Anywho, thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!
