The challenge was to use a phrase from a piece of Word Art posted on the blog and use 4 photo corners. I used the phrase "We are Blessed" and used 2 pick and 2 yellow photo corners. For the rest of the layout, I used items from the Studio Calico Blue Note Scrapbook kit and Project life kit as well as the Bennett Add-on and Armstrong Add-on. The background paper is called Flashback and is from the Recorded line by Allison Kreft for Webster's Pages. (The picture is a little blurry but I just realized this and the layout is now with my mom as it was part of her Christmas gift - so it is what it is!)
The "we are" was written by me and then cut with my silhouette. To do this, I first wrote the word with a black sharpie on a white piece of paper. I scanned it in to my computer and then opened it in my silhouette software. I then traced it to give it cut lines and then had the silhouette cut it out. I used gold POW paper from American Crafts. I find this is usually faster for me than looking for the "perfect" font when I have what I want in my head.
