- Crop the child’s name using the Large Letters Framelits Dies. Adhere with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Add Best Route Enamel Shapes as a final touch.
The Best Route Designer Series Paper and Best Route Enamel Shapes coordinated perfectly with my photos of Preston. I know they are not “official” school photos, but I ran with it. It represents a very special day, the first day of first grade!
I love my blue-eyed boy! The center photo is one of my favorites. It captured his happy, bright-eyed smile that he gives so very often!
The Best Route Enamel Shapes that are “Pin” points on a map were perfect to represent our home address and the school name. Cute, cute, cute!
I love making scrapbook pages, they bring back memories and make me smile…every time!
