Everday is a Blessing

I just love these little faces!  I sent them off to school again this morning just before sitting down to blog.  {sigh}

The papers and other elements of the My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing collection came together so easily for me to create this layout.  I used a craft knife to cut the design out of the background paper and slipped my matted photo right behind the design to begin creating this layered effect.

Next I added two of the chipboard elements.  One fits right inside the other so I added pop dots behind the inside element to make it pop further than the outer element.  I also punched a circle out of one of the stickers to place over the center of the chipboard to change the look a bit and to change the sentiment since it worked better for my layout.

I used foam dimensional adhesive to pop the "Everyday is a blessing" card off of the page.  Before I added it to my layout I used an edge distresser to alter it a bit.  Then I slipped my journaling with ribbon accent right behind the edge of the card and adhered it to my layout.

I finished the layout by writing the date on this chipboard piece and adding it to the upper right corner of my photo.
