Alter your photo in some way - distress it, color on it, punch it, embellish it, color spot, etc.

This is my first version... it's actually work for the make your own accents one too cause I made everything on here. It took hours between making the roses and the ribbon and stitching, etc... I really don't like it. usually I'd deal with it, but I really love those photos of Carrie... so I'll probably take it apart and redo it tomorrow.

I REALLY love the touch that sanding the pictures added.

Such sweet pics!! The ribbon flowers look like a lot of work - hopefully you can reuse them if you re-do this page!!

Hard to tell in the pic but the edge of the photo has been bunched using a border punch

2nd version

The flowers in fact are REALLY easy. I'm going to post them in the technique board soon. I didn't have to re-stitch I cheated and cut out the "stems" from my other page (so under the white ribbon where you can't see is green card stock, SHH dont' tell anyone) Took just a few minutes to do this second version. I love it. Amazing what a little color change will do for a LO

I really like what the sanding did to all the elements of this page (literally everything is sanded except the title and ribbon)

What a great thing challenges are... you learn something new every day!

Alycia, I really like your second take on the layout.

Carrie, I love the airplane paper, so cute!!

This was one of the last challenges I did. I distressed and inked the edges of the picture. I also used foam squares on the pic.
