I had to enlist the help of my dear scrappy friend to help me narrow down which of the many photos I should use on my layout. Thanks Haley!
I really liked the demask patterned paper but I found a little bit much for this layout but I still wanted to use it. I didn't like it just as a strip because not matter where you cut it in the pattern you were cutting away parts of the design. I'm not one for fussy cutting but I found it came in useful in helping me to incorporate it on this layout simply without over powering it.
