Starting with two 5x7's (which justifies my excessive purchase) did not leave too much room for creativity on a one-page layout. I opted for paper blocking with patterned papers from a past Studio Calico kit that I received as a RAK. To soften all of those straight edges, I distressed the papers and pictures. The letters were cut on my Cricut using black specialty paper from a Halloween line. I love when I can do that!
I pick up this year's pictures in two weeks and will have to get busy on scrapping new layouts.
