1. Color the top border design on the journaling side of the Take note paper with
    The Tombow Retro set and blend them with the blender pen to create different
    shading.  I added some stickles glitter to some special places to create sparkle.  
    The blender pen makes shading really easy!

2.  Mat the 5 X 7 photo first with black cardstock and then the yellow.   Place Photo
     to the left side of layout just under the top line of journaling.  

3.  Cut out 3 frames with the Cricut machine using the Elegant edges cartridge.  The
     large frame measures 4 1/ 2 inches tall and the 2 smaller ones are 3 inches tall.

4.  Cut the Notations TAGS to fit the corresponding openings of the 3 frames.  I used the
    checked tag for the large frame.  I spelled the wording with the Alphabet letters.
     I colored these letters first with blender pen ink soft colors-- and then brushed on
     stickles glitter.  Place the letters on the checked tag when dry and glue frame around
       them.  The frame goes over the top right hand side of photo.  I used the stamp
      runner  to attatch it.

5.  I cut a portion of the swirl tag to fit into one of the smaller frames.  I used a blender pen
      with the Tombow yellow and hot pink markers to color this swirl.    Journal on this
      tag and place below photo  with stamp runner adhesive.

6.  The last frame has a tag inside that has been slightly colored with a blue marker
       using the blender pen.  I also cut a heart out of another swirl tag and colored with
       pink and orange markers.  Add some stickles to the design and after gluing down
       the frame, you can place the heart on it with a 3D foam tab.  It will lift the heart.

7. The Collins Key is attached by tucking it under the ON the EDGE brad at top of frame-
     Over the heart.

8.  The last embellishment is a rose made from the rulers paper.  The center is a Jamie’s
      gem.   Glue down with glossy accents.
