These are some wonderful photos of my son and his Gido or Gid as he calls him of late. I found these file folders at Micheal's and new they were going to be a layout. The even had matching ribbons I was so excited. So I got it all home and just went where the file folders and ribbon took me. I distressed edges, inked edges, cut out the butterflies, birds and other pieces from another file folder to make the embellishments. The ribbon of course was a perfect match I only added the large ric rac which was so graciously given to me by a scrappy friend. I used glitter, liquid glass, beads(micro and seed), pearl gloss paint, and stickles for all the embellishments. I also used the tim holtz crackle paint here and there for texture...thanks for stopping in and sharing this layout with me...I love it hope you do to...the saying is wonderful.
