Step by Step
Distress the smooth side of a sheet of Peach color Core’dinations cardstock with sandpaper. It works well if you wet it a little with water.
Cut a piece of the Animal patterned paper to 3.5x11.5" and glue it on the bottom as shown. Attach two cardstock fancy frills on top.
Cut a piece of green Core’dinations cardstock to 5.5x7.5", glue a piece of striped patterned paper ¼ of an inch smaller on top of it as shown. Cut a piece of green Core’dinations to measure 5x7" and distress the edges, add your photograph on top of this and then stick the whole mat to the right of the layout as shown.
Attach some animal stickers next to, slightly under and on top of the top left edge of the photomat.
Glue the twig with leaves carstock fancy frill on the right side of the photo. Attach a monkey and the bird. Take the white paper flowers and add a little bit of glitter glue to the paper flowers using your finger. Attach them with the white velvet brads onto a twig with leaves as shown.
Use the Smooch accent ink to decorate the flowers and paper frill. Finally, make the title with the two different styles of chipboard alphabet letters. For the letters ‘YOU’ I distressed the velvet letters with a litte brown ink.
