So Crafty

Last year I made a bunch of ATCs at a crop. Instead of trading them normally, I used them to alter drinking glasses. Each glass was given away holding some sweet-scented lemon balm. Seeing the orange poppy paper in my Scrappin Studio kit inspired me to scrap these photos.

Lots of tabs in this layout. The main photo is held up by an actual metal index clip. I mat several papers below the photo and added phrase stickers along the side to create the illusion of more tabs. A journal card partially hidden behind the smaller photo mimics a longish tab. To break up the trapped white space I added two doily halves. They subtly echo the cup-shaped flowers in the borders and are mirrored by the ghost doily print in the paper. 

Linking up to these parties.
