Using up left over papers - Birthday Boy

I used up loads of my scraps of a variety of My Little Shoebox papers on this LO.  I cut out some of the lanterns from the Harmony range as they went well with the picture anddoodled the string.  I used some left over strips to create the backing for my photos, to make it a little more interesting I dusted off my deckle edge scissors and crumpled some of the papers. In this LO I decided to try a black and white and a colour photo - mainly as I love the cake shot my DH took :).  I stapled some twine in loops and then tied some little bits of ribbon that I have to use up.  Lastly I made some rosette flowers with offcuts.  The large one (which is very 3d - not sure how well this LO will fit in my page protecter!) I punched the side with my Martha Stewart double loop punch which gives a really nice effect, then added another one on top and a button - can't get much more 3 dimensional than that!!  Thanks for popping by, and I would encourage you to use up your scraps, hopefully this LO has given you some inspiration for that.
