Well, I didn't use this as a scrapbook page, but it's the first thing that I've HAD to make in ages because I got bit by the crafting bug.  Any suggestions would be welcome! Also, sorry for the crappy picture.  I need a camera and not my phone. Sad

The background is a neutral tannish brown with tone-on-tone stamping of leaves.  The word tree I made at tagxedo.com and printed on cardstock.  I cut it out and then cut out the dark teal "frame" to match.  The red words say "Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness" and I stamped it on cardstock and then made a frame for that, too.  The picture is one my grandfather gave me at Christmas - it's been well-loved, obviously, but I thought it was even cooler that way, honestly.  I added the heart for a pop of red, which is also why I added the ribbon.  The real/turquoise theme matches my craft area, so it's being displayed there.




Concrit welcome!

This looks really cool - I love the word tree and agree that the well-loved condition of the picture just adds the perfect touch!
