And a little look at my process:
I started with the enlarged photo of Simon out in the morning fog. The photo and the piece of pattern paper are each approximately 8 inches x 10.5 inches.
Along each of the outer edges I adhered a strip of pattern paper that's about 1/8 inch wide x 10.5 inches tall. This came from the same sheet of pattern paper as the large area (great for using the pattern on the back).
Next I stamped two sentiments and a date on white cardstock.
Each of those stamped pieces is adhered to a bit of pattern paper and then finished off with a zig zag stitch.
Adhere tags on top of photos. Add a staple if you like a bit of metal. Add letter stickers, journaling, and just a bit of stitching along the outside edges.
