Imaginisce Team:

I got to play with the Core'dinations Kraft Core cardstock. I love Core'dinations cardstock. It's perfect for embossing and distressing so that's what I did with my layout. The embossing folder I have is small, but after embossing one side of my cardstock strip, I turned if around to do the other side. My photos cleverly hide the seam between the top and bottom. Sanding the top gives it a two tone effect so it looks like real tree bark. I teamed it up the Kraft core cardstock with the Imaginisce Outdoor Adventure collection ...

This is my daughter Colette in the middle ( yes, my daughter who was always the dirtiest kid on the playground when I picked her up after school. ) At 20 she still enjoys rolling in mud! This was for a good cause though. She was raising $$ for Breast Cancer. I had a lot of fun slinging mud ( I mean paint ) on my layout. I even dripped paint so it looks like the mud is dripping off the photos.

I have discovered Chic Tags. These are fabulous. I used this one to hide my journaling on and tucked it behind my photo.

So leave a comment to be eligable for a prize, then hop on over to Apryl Holland

Thanks for stopping by :)
