Add a 6" x4" photo 0.5" from the left edge
Add the small letter stickers to the lower part of the photo
Cut a piece of 'Happy Stroll' paper 11" x 2" and glue this below the photo
Cut 2 thin strips of the reverse of 'Happy Stroll' and add to the top and bottom of the previous paper as shown
Cut a chipboard frame diagonally and add one part to the top left of your photo, to form a corner
Cut a pice of plain cardstock to fit the chipboard circle, add your journaling & glue to the lower right of the patterned paper
To colour the chipboard letters apply a coat of gold Dabber paint and allow to dry.
Apply a layer of brown Chalk ink and before this dries paint on a thin layer of Making Memories Glaze - this will mix with the paint to give the bronzed effect.
