For this layout I used my Authentique products. I really like the bright colors and the textured patterns.
I inked up the edges with distress ink. The photo is enlarged to 5x7. I hand wrote the journaling banners. For the title, I used American Crafts fabric covered chipboard letters. The "5" was a chipboard piece I've had in my stash forever. I'm glad I finally used one of these! To add more texture and interest to that plain chipboard, I stamped on it. I had a grid stamp so I stamped right onto the chipboard and then inked up the edges.
My large button is a new one I got from Stampin' Up!'s holiday mini catalog. I layered it with another button, and just used twine to hold them together. The tags are also from the Authentique line. I really like the blue color and the dark purple. Here's a close up of my stamping on the chipboard.
