~* Back-to-School Photo Display for my Sis *~

Aloha Everyone!
Sharing a photo display I created using coasters for my sis to display her kiddies' school photos.  The mats accommodate 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" wallet size photos.  I used the Crate Paper Pretty Party paper stack (don't ya love the strawberry paper :)).  I distressed the edges with Antique Linen and also added faux stitching with my pen.  I colored up the Greeting Farm images from the Oliver and Amelia Little Dreamer set with Copic markers.  Love those backpacks, aren't they adorable?  I used a bunch of Wild Orchid Craft flowers (all the paper roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts as well as the double layered crochet flower}...{Going to submit this project into the Wild Orchid Craft Challenge - Summer Flowers.}  I added some twine around the photo mats.  The blue one is from Doodlebug and the pink one is from kawaiigoodies on etsy.  I also added some buttons which are from kawaiigoodies.  The little wood rulers are from Maya Road.  I added some wood letters from Walmart which I painted with acrylic paint and then added Frosted Lace Stickles to them.  I also added Frosted Lace Stickles to the wings on her backpack.  I used some Stampin' Up! products including the punch and the trim to tie the two pieces together.  I also added some pearls - to the center of the crochet flower, the heart pearl near the "K" and the pearls on the tab.  I handwrote the "2012" on the tab.
Thanks for stopping by have a lovely week!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
