Four or More: Best Buddy

Happy Sunday!  I was recently up at 
with a "Four or More" photo project that I was really excited to take on.
 I'm generally a three-photo-or-less type of scrapper, but I found a
 way to stick with three larger photos and then added a smaller photo as an embellishment! 

I started out by cutting the Shine Patterned Paper (diagonal stripe) apart along 
one of the lines and then layered it on top of the Beautiful Patterned Paper (yellow dot).
 Then I had a thought to create a intersection by adding the reverse side of the cut
 Shine was the perfect juncture for the beginning of the title.

 The photos were printed at wallet size and then trimmed down to leave just a
 small white border around each. I took the photo of Bear and used a 1.75" circle
 die to cut out his face. A 2" scalloped punch was used to create a black 
background for the photo; the two were layered together with foam adhesive. 
By embellishing and adding a bow, it made an eye-catching focal point.

I accented the photos with various chipboard hearts and washi tape stickers.
 I adhered the washi tape to cardstock and then trimmed out...this allowed me to
 add them to the layout with foam adhesive. 
 I typed out the journaling and then trimmed into strips. 
The Transparent Alphas were adhered with a micro adhesive dot, but you can 
also run through through a Xyron Sticker Maker, machine stitch or attach them with brads! 

Collection used: Bella Rouge

Have a great week!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
