I decided to play around with the paper and ended up with the folded over "thing" and decided to bind it all together with the twine that came in the kit. I ended up really liking the end result. I used some of the kit paper to make my shabby sunflower. I will be posting a tutorial over at Swirlydoos on how to make it.
I folded a strip of paper so that I created pleats and added that over the top of some card stock I had punched.
This page gave me fits. Grr. I decided to rough cut the center circles and use what was left of the die cut from my sketch page. The photo represents reflection to me. Not only because of the obvious fact that she is looking in the water, but because when you do everything around you seems to become quiet and you are left with your thoughts and the rippling water. My DD has been taking karate and learning a lot about hard work and discipline and that is why the little blurb about courage seemed to fit this page so well. I'm very proud of her.
