First Post and a Little Technique

PP:Urban Lily
Mist:PK Glitz

Hi everyone! It's Janet here and this is my first blog post for Urban Swank and I have to tell you that I am super excited to be on the DT with all my fellow super talented Swanky Gurls!!!

Today I have a layout that I created using some of the gorgeous Urban Lily papers.
I found this photo of my Mom and my son Jonathan from Mother's Day 1987 and just had to scrap it.
The photo was taken at the Cozy Restaurant where we go every year on Mother's Day.

I cut out the circle from the Pink Flamingo paper to use as my focal paper to house my photo.

I matted my photo with the Honey paper and one of the Memory Photo cards.

For my journaling I used one of the Accents from the Urban Cut Collection

I then embellished my page with some butterflies and some pretty Prima flowers.

Do you see that pretty scalloped edging on my round background paper? How did I do it you ask? Well I'll tell you...........I used a border punch!

Let me explain how I did it.

Cut a strip of pp about 1-1 1/2" wide and then border punch it.

Then cut in between each scallop.

Run adhesive along the backside of your circle and adhere each "scallop" where you want it and are done!

I hope that you have enjoyed my first post and maybe even learned a little something.:)
