Playing with Punches and Tools

This past June my sister in law got married. After the wedding we all went out for the reception dinner and as I was waddling behind them (I was 32 weeks pregnant) I saw the cutest thing, my boys all holding hands.  I knew that their time together was limited as my husband is deployed to Afghanistan right now, so watching them at this moment was very bitter sweet.

As I was playing around with my layers I liked how they all lined up to the right instead of being centered, this gave me room to play with different edges.  I used 3 different edge punches, Tattered Angels mist splatters, and paper distressing with a paper edge distresser from Prima.  You don't always have to use just one punch or technique for a page, playing with more than one is fun and gives your project more interest.

If you like these wonderful elements on my page, head on over to the NEW Flamingo Scraps store at . You'll be thrilled at what they have to offer !
