First thing I wanted to show you, do you recognize this cut out? The smart woman who created this cutout used ugly paper as a backing, knowing it wasn't going to matter to the final result. I think that's a very good way to use supplies.
right side, there she is in the middle, not ugly at all.
Here's the completed layout. I penciled in the year until I figure out a nicer way to add that detail. Whoops, sorry about the extra clutter at the top of the picture. I wasn't in a cleaning up mode rushing to get these pictures done. Background paper was from my stash.
