* First I stamped the circle doodle stamp on to patterned paper and then cut them out.
* Second, I stamped and embossed the smaller trees by the big tree.
* Then I also used small letter stamps. When I did this, I didn't even bother trying to stamp them in a line. :)
I just love this layout. I have lots of pictures of my boys smiling or not smiling. This one has expressions that are in between. I love their looks. Also, that big picture is one of my favorites. I love how they were being playful in it. But unfortunately, most of my youngest got cut out of the picture. I didn't let this discourage me though...I used it to my advantage. I placed the tree over his face so it looks like he is peeking out behind the tree. It made the picture even more playful. :)
