Ok. This is starting to get interesting.
I'm jumping in -- hopefully I can catch.
Here's the fourth suggestion...
1. Find two solid papers and a notebook paper. One of the papers needs to have a worn look.
2. Stack and rotate all the papers in any way you wish, but use them full size. Stack them in whatever order you want as long as you can see part of all of them and you use them full size.
3. Find one photo to put on your layout and one frame to go with it. Place your
photo and frame on your layout.
4. Place 2 ricracs, one ribbon, and one ribbon wrap somewhere on your layout.
Ok...I just got a brand new laptop (my old one died...luckily i bought a warranty)...gotta find that "special" GDS folder with the kits in it...I think the only one that might look worn is your retro kit? now to find out where I filed that folder when my laptop went in the shop
