Two of the challenge blogs that I follow teamed up for their mid-month challenge. Sketch-n-Scrap produced the sketch while Scrap Our Stash provided the additional requirement of using two border punches and one other punch.

I picked a couple of smaller photos, and roughly followed the sketch, but I adapted it as I went along. I used two border punches, and then five more assorted shapes for clusters to the sides of the photos:

Paper - MME The Sweetest Thing, MME Miss Caroline
Letters - American Crafts
Brads - Papermania
Mist - Teal Cosmic Shimmer Mist
Ink - Ink It Up!

Fiskars Postage Stamp Border Punch
X-Cut Scalloped Border Punch
Woodware Postage Stamp Punch
Woodware Scalloped Circle Punch
Woodware Tiny Star Punch
Hobbycraft Star Punch
Craft Essentials Heart Punch
