My second scrapbook page - BBTB2's challenge

I made this one for my American teacher's wife. They live in Florida. The teacher came to VN to train me and other teachers. When he flew back to the US, I bought his wife some silk for a long dress. It took her forever to choose a style and when it was done, they happily took photo of her in her new dress and sent it to me.

Luckily, Bitten By The Bug 2 is having a fence challenge. I pleasantly entered this LO.

This is how the layout turns out. I will print her pic and put it one the blank square in the middle later.

What I used and did on this LO:

- Cardstock: I used Bo Bunny Origins Collection Pack.
- The tree was cut at 53/4'' from Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. I will put more leaves to it so that it has a spring or summer look.
- The fence was cut 21/2'' from Songbird cartridge.
- The vine and flower are from the same paper pack.
- I left some space on the right of the photo for her to write some journaling on on  her own. I used a piece of transparent vellum for this which can highlight the flower under it. Four brads helps fix the vellum and the paper under it together.
- Border and corner Martha Steward Punches were used for the yellow layer.
