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.

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
