After all the Easter LO's I wanted to shift gears a bit. I pulled out a few different pics I wanted to scrap & started searching for some papers to match. Just really waiting for inspiration to kick in. Well while I was going through some assorted papers that I don't have a lot of I came across a piece of paper that would go perfectly with a pic I had seen but not pulled out to scrap. Make sense?
The paper was so perfect for this that I could almost just slap the pic on it & call it done.
I matted the pic, added some floss & pop dotted it.
It was alright.
Then I decided to add some real stitching to the left side instead of the "faux" stitching, as well as some real buttons to the owl's eyes.
But then I realized I had other pics that I wanted to include after all. So I tore off the pic & the pop dots (which don't come off without a fight--despite using un-du) & tried coming up with a way to include them all.
I decide to take the pics I had, along with the blog post about the owl & turn it into a hidden mini album.
I also got to use this adorable owl punch I got at Michael's last week. And I used the leftover bits from the border punch to frame the pic in the center since it needed something.
I didn't think I would've turned that pic into a LO if I didn't come across that paper! I just love when something comes together like that!
