2. Leftover crepe paper or wrapping tissue can be made into a fun embellishment.


3. Wash out that soda can and run it through your embossing machine for a cool metal embellishment.
4. Glue and unravel twine for awesome texture.
5. Mist/Ink and stamp masking tape for your own washi tape.

Totally awesome layout! I love the sun and the cardboard, plus I love the embossed soda can! Is visiting Machu Picchu really an 'ordinary, everyday moment', or did you have a different meaning for that embellishment?
