My roommate & I went to the San Diego Fair & took these silly photobooth pics. After we got our faces painted, no less Cheesy.  

I love it because this was my first time using plain white cardstock as my background.  I had to resist the urge to use patterned paper, and use ribbon to add color and texture.  At the end I actually ended up painting a light border around the page, so I gave in a little!



I love the little blue dots & rub-ons on the photo.


I cut out and painted some patterned paper and added a button for some buckness. Lol.
Thanks for looking!

I absolutely LOVE this.  I might have to give this a try with the ribbons and plain cardstock.   (: Thanks for some inspiration.

This is an awesome layout, I recently did a similar one using left over pieces of PP, I'll have to give it a try with all my left over bits of ribbons and trims.

What a cute idea!  I never would have thought of that.  Thanks for sharing you tip!  I'm totally going to have to try it Smiley

That's cute! As an alternative... if you keep your scraps (I do, I have two boot boxes FULL), you could put strips of patterned paper down as the background. I've done that... although I also matted my picture and did some big photo corners, to draw the attention to my picture... I think yours is adorable! The colors are nice, and it's... balanced. Smiley
