I can see...

So yea, I am so far behind on the scrapping that it's just sad. This was a Scrap It With a Song challenge from weeks ago and I am just finally getting it done. I liked the inspiration behind it, so why not finish it, right?
This is my daughter and her new glasses. What is different about this LO is that I layered two different sizes of the photo. I matted the photos, then simply stacked them. They are a 5x7 and 4x6 of the exact same pose. It lined up pretty well, but next time, I think cropping a second 5x7 would line up even better. Part of the title is done in chipboard and inked with Elegant Eggplant from Stampin' Up then heat embossed. The rest of the title is cut from Cricut's Base Camp at 1 1/4 inches. The song lyrics are printed in Almagro font. Paper is open stock from Michaels. I cut two 2 inch strips of cardstock and layered them, then used SU's scallop border punch. I used my eyelet punch to make the circles in the middle of the scallop. Last I used a swirl paperclip with a bit of ribbon tied to it to finish the look. I know the color combos are a bit odd, but I wanted to bring some of the background forward. I scrimped on the embellishments because I didn't want to do too much with how busy the background paper was.
Thanks for looking! April
