SHOPPING OUR STASH #256 - Let Me Take a Selfie!

Happy Tuesday friends! We have a fun challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH! Since taking a selfie is a major trend right now, we thought we'd challenge you to create a Polaroid scene on your card or project! Here's what I came up with:

I started by stamping that Polaroid frame and masking around it with sticky notes. Then I stamped the gnome onto masking paper and fussy cut. I stamped the middle gnome, applied the mask over him, then stamped him again on either side. The sentiment I printed out from my computer before I colored the scene. The Polaroid is attached to the fluted panel with a heart shaped brad. LOVE how this came out! 

Now it's your turn! Just create a Polaroid scene and link it up at Shopping Our Stash! Please do yourself a favor and visit the blogs of my teammates to check out their creations and leave some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting!
