Trim another paper to measure 11cm by 6cm. Tuck under the top edge of the photo.
Trim a third patterned paper to measure 5cm by 7.5cm and tuck under the right hand side of the photo. Glue all the pieces in place.
Print or write journalling on white card. Trim and position at the bottom of the page. Glue two lengths of ribbon across the page hiding the ends behind the journalling block.
Use Glitteration borders to edge and highlight sections of the page.
Add cardstock alphabet stickers to contrasting card, Cut out and layer on another card layer. Cut out and add to the page overlapping the photo.
Add a row of Petals flowers at the top of the photo with ribbons and brads in the centre of each. Add a pair of photo turns to the left hand edge and secure with brads.
Complete by adding the date to the top corner and accenting with Mosaics and Glitteration Dots as an accent.
