Altered Printer's Tray

I've had this photo tray from 7 Gypsies hanging around for a while.  I fell in love with it when I saw it and snatched it up.  I wanted to be in the right mood when I worked on this project.  I didn't want to be rushed, I wanted to be able to focus on it.  I picked out some pictures from different times in our family's life. With the long holiday weekend, I was able to dedicate some time to this.  Once I got started, there was no stopping me!  Ever get like that?  I think when the mojo train comes through you just have to hop on board and go for the ride!

I used so many different products on here. The majority of it is a hybrid mix of 7 Gypsies papers, and digital papers from the kit Fly Free by Jennifer Barrette available at Scrapmatters. The colors in this kit are really warm and wonderful, the elements and just shabby enough to give a vintage look without looking old fashioned. The mini tag was made completely from the Fly Free kit.  I love the bird and the cage.  In the one section, I used the Background Essentials paper by Jennifer Barrette to create a book.  These are such a great set of papers, they are a must have for your design toolbox!  I have the book held closed with some thin magnets that are secured under the papers. Inside the book are some additional photos as well as some great words and sayings that spark many memories!

Here are close ups of the different sections.

Now let me see if I can list for you all the stuff that I used in making this.
