Layout ~ Journey


Sharing a layout today ~ love this shot of my big teen back when he was in preschool.  I used Distress Inks, four of Tim Holtz’s Sizzix dies, Idea-ology, a Dymo labeler, and Glossy Accents over the tiny stickers I used for his name.  I rubbed Stickles over the letters and let them dry before attaching with my Xyron® 1.5” Create-a-Sticker.
