finished with my 1st printer's tray

I've seen so many gorgeous printer's trays out there & thought I am not talented enough to tackle one of those.  But when I saw the 7Gypsies trays at Michael's, I could not resist.  I grabbed a couple & brought them home, contemplated over what I was going to do with them & eventually my first attempt came out like this:

It came together pretty easily.  Of course a lot of it had to do with the fabulous products I used.  I started off with this gorgeous paper line by Echo Park.  It is called Be Mine & I love every single piece that is in that collection.  I think I must use a Martha Stewart punch somewhere on every project.  I love her punches & used a few on this project.  I also used dies from several companies including Sizzix, Spellbinders, Cuttlebug, & old school Quikutz.  I added a couple of embellies from Teresa Collins Crush Line & a little bit of Heidi Swapp.  Some ribbon, some bling, a few buttons & I'm done  :)

I made this project to display some of the photos of hubby with my girls when they were younger.  It seems he was always taking one or the other to a father/daughter dance.  I guess it is a little girl-ie, but when your a daddy to 2 girls, there is a lot of girliness in our lives.
