Maui - MDSM87


Just got back from our Hawaii vacation, and wanted to use one of our photos from our trip for the MDS Monday Blog Sketch this week.  You may view the challenge and all the lovely pages from this sketch here:

This one was a huge challenge for me, as I chose to make all the boxes photo boxes, and when you add DSP to photo boxes....the DSP is really tiny, so you need to zoom out in all of them.  The reason I chose to do all photo boxes instead of a mix of photo boxes and rounded punches -- was the roundedness of the photo boxes were not in uniform with the rounded punch shape.  I mean.... I guess you couldn't really tell that huge of a difference between the two, but I wasn't happy with it.  So, making them all photo boxes worked well for my purposes! =)

In placing the photo within several photo boxes, I grouped those photo boxes together before placing my photo within those boxes.

Thanks for looking!

Supplies Used:
Background Paper - Crumb Cake
Embellishments - Timeless Taffeta Trimmings (bow - Not Quite Navy); Dahlias (Crumb Cake)
Stamp Brush Set - Natural Composition Overlays (Sahara Sand)
