Love this

I think I need a new camera. My pictures don't look as good as my layout's do IRL. lol  Anyway, I am still doing scrapbooks for my grandkids, using old family pictures. This is one of me and my late husband, Steve.
I started out with 12x12 cardstock- Bermuda Bay by SU! and sponged some brown and white ink on the cardstock. On the right of the picture, I used a stencil by TCW and some white Molding Paste. Then, I used a white gel pen and added dots all over and a border. On the left side, I punched 6- 1" holes and weaved some Bermuda Bay ribbon through the holes. I then tied 4 bows on the weaved ribbon and glued 2 strips of DP ("season of color" by Webster's pages), along side of the ribbon.
 I like the look of corrugated cardboard, but for the life of me, I couldn't find any in the stash! So, I used a piece of DP that looks like wood and my "crimper". I also made the arrows with that paper and a square punch.  Under that, I added some more pieces of DP by Webster Pages behind my picture.  
I punched the flowers (used the crimper on them), leaves, a tag and then added some cardboard cut outs and a brad that I had. 
I would like to enter my layout @:
My Craft Spot- Pinterest Inspired- (I liked the colors in the picture)
Frosted Designs- add texture (stencil and molding paste and crimped paper)
