18th Birthday Collage

Here is a picture of the collage that I made for my Sister's 18th Birthday. The squares represent the things that she likes at this point in her life. I am extremely pleased with how it turned out. I mounted this in a Shadow Frame as I added some 3D flowers in one corner on the Very Vanilla Card Stock.

I mounted an 8x8 piece of Basic Black card stock onto a 12x12 piece of Very Vanilla. The insert squares measure 2x2. I used My Digital Studio (MDS2) and the internet for some of the elements (picture of Taylor Swift, letter "A" and the school collage square). The picture of the Collie was one of my Mother's dogs.
