{How I Remember It}

I love scrappin' old photos! I like looking back to a different time, a different place. Recently I've been working on pictures from my childhood, and even though I've hardly made a dent in the pile of photos, I'm having a great time reminiscing. Here I am at age 3, in front of the playhouse my Dad built for me.
I loved playing in that cute little playhouse!! 
To add to the whimsical feel of the layout, I added a row of diagonal stripe washi to a strip of white cardstock, then I used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors and cut all the way across the strip. I adhered the "fringe washi" to the kraft colored cardstock and then added the rest of the layers to complete may layout.

As always, thanks for stopping by today!

The fringing is so pretty on here, Mary Ann. I have a couple of old photos pulled out to scrap (of my Dad).

Wow...LOVE the fringed washi tape! Fabulous idea! Your dad must have been a very handy man to build a playhouse for you.
