While touring the Houston Space Center a few years ago we
passed by this grove of trees. The tour
operator informed us that this was a Memorial Garden and that each tree
represented an astronaut who has died during the programs. It was quite a beautiful way to honor their
memories. For this page I used Kreaxions Punch #312 with Templates A
and B. This punch is SO
I created a border piece by
using the cut outs from another page.
Then I used more cut out pieces at the top of my large photo mat. And finally I used another border of cut out
pieces underneath the longer border.
Using a Xyron X is the best way to use those little itty bitty pieces
and to not waste them! And finally I even added a few cut out pieces across the
top of one of the tags to create a third border on the page. I finished all the cut out pieces off with a
little dab of Stickles to make them pop!
