A Couple of Masked Bandits

Happy Hump Day!
Wednesdays are my days to blog over at 
THE PAPER BAKERY
and I have a sweet layout up using the December Add-On Kit

I ran across this picture of my kids…it was actually one that my mom took several years ago.
  I love how Sydnee’s mask is crooked and you can only see ONE eye hehehe!

 I started with a piece of cardstock and began selecting the patterned papers
 from the December Paper Bakery Kit that I wanted to use.  
I knew that I wanted lots of black elements to bring out the black masks…
and doesn’t the black/white striped paper remind you of the old prison outfits?
 LOL So I tucked a bit of it in as I began layering.
 
After punching out a few different sized stars, I covered them in
 paper and then stitched around the edge.  I cut the sentiment portion from the tag
 (included in the December Add-On Kit) and corner rounded the edges for a nice effect.

I used my personal cutting machine to create the “bandits” part of the title
…for the “masked” part I just cut the letters from one of the Studio Calico papers from the kit!
  I ended up with lots of lovely layers by using a couple of the journal cards and
 by heavily matting the photo.  
Finally…a photo that had been sitting in a box for years at last found a home :)

We’ll be sharing fun with the January Paper Bakery Kit SOON!  
Here’s a little bitty peek at something that I came up with:
In the hunt for an original kit club?
