KNK November kit reveal #2

My second reveal with KNK's November kit! This first layout is of my son when he was just two years old.... oh my when I think about it, that was 15 years ago! This has always been one of my favorite portraits of him...
Wasn't he such a little cutie!!! To make the fence semi-mimic the fence in the portrait, I trimmed and painted the Nikki Sivils Bread(less) Tabs. I had to use two of them for each fencepost to make them a little taller, but the twine covers the seam pretty well. I also used one of the bigger Maya Road envelopes on this for my hidden journaling, but tucked everything but the flap behind the photo. Of course you can open the flap and remove the journal card inside.
With the few tiny little scraps I had left I made a card! The paper leaf doilie was very thin and fragile so instead of trying to use a traditional adhesive I covered the whole front of the card with Mod Podge, stuck the doilie down, then covered it with Mod Podge as well. This gave the card some great stability and I was able to embellish any way I wanted. As you are all well aware, cards aren't really my thing, so when I finish one and it actually looks the way I want it to I feel like I really accomplished something!

Thankfully, I ordered a bunch more add-ons and extra paper from this kit and it came just in time for the crop at Kit 'n Kaboodles last Saturday, so I have more fun stuff from this kit to share!! Coming soon....
