Use a photo

Funky Fairys Challenge wants to see photos this week. I made a blue and white layout (my version of the Finnish flag) for a photo from a trip to Helsinki many years ago, it was a winter trip and freezing cold.

Decorpaper are Funky Fairys. The stamped images are Tim Holtz and I used Distress Inks for stamping and distressing. Alphabet is Sissix. Blue flowers, pearls, ribbon and small flower punch are Panduro. I made good use of my sewing machine for the circle.

I´ve hidden a tag behind the photo for journaling or more photos. The tag is from Funky Fairys free Christmas kit. I used two of them and stamped a Tim Holtz image on the smaller one. The lion reminds a little of Finlands Coat of Arms. I´m not usually keeping track of such things but as I was born in Finland...

Today I´ll be busy choosing new cardstock and adhesives and other lovely things, I hope I´ll come home with everything I need and not just things I fell in love with :)

Hope you all get a fab weekend,
