My eye went right to that plaid wrapping paper. I just love the look of the red and black check together, and it really reminded me of the plaid paper in the Warm & Cozy collection from Pebbles, so I knew I had to use it! I started by printing my photo in black & white, then backed it with that fab paper.
I cut those cool pinecone boughs using my Silhouette Cameo, then layered on the embellishments. I mixed it up on this one, with pieces from We R Memory Keepers, Fancy Pants Design and Crate Paper, pulling in the black and white colors.
To finish my layout, I added splatters of black paint, a few red sequins, and stamped my date. I can't believe this photo was taken almost 11 years ago.
