I think I'll file this one under "older patterned papers go with older photos". Oh, the sweet memories of when my children used to play together so nicely in the backyard . . .
The decadent thing about this page? See that piece of purple check paper? I cut into a brand new sheet of patterned paper for a rectangle about 10x3cm. But then, it was a sheet destined for the bin if it didn't get used soon, so maybe it wasn't that decadent!
Next page I did was based on the monthly sketch at "Ideal Paper Craft". This one I'll file under "it's fun to use new patterned papers before they turn into old papers too". I used my Basic Grey Marjolaine papers which I have really loved since buying the whole set at the end of last year. This page uses one full sheet and off-cuts from other projects of three other double sided sheets of paper, as well as the coordinating stickers.
Bonus hint: after I was happy with the placement of my elements, I took this digital photo, so that after I had added tape to the back of everything, I would still remember where it all went!
