Photo Background

Using a Photo as Your Background
At Heart 2 Heart this week the challenge is to add a photo to a project. 
I used a photo for the background of my scrapbook pages.
Our summer at the beach gave us some great boogie board photos as 
Ashley and Zachary practiced catching the waves.

Zachary is catching his wave with much joy
Directions for using a photo as a background: Choose a photo the has the subject in the corner (Ashley's page) or off to the the side (Zachary's page). Crop your photo square and print in grey scale on 12 X 12 White Daisy or Colonial White cardstock. Use the "triple play" concept in Reflections to add your photos. Add journaling on the page after the background photo is printed on the 12 X 12.
Now it's your turn to show us how you like to add a photo to your project at Heart 2 Heart.

CTMH Supplies:
Cardstock: White Daisy, black, Indian Corn blue
Stamps: Custom name stamps
Embellishments: Blue Brads
Title and journaling done on the computer.
Pattern: "Triple Play" from Reflections
