Family Tree Layout

Several years ago I had plans to make a wood purse.  I picked up these mini metal frames from Michael's and added black and white photos of my family to them.  The plan was to decorate the outside of the purse with the frames and some metal plates with sentiments on them.  It's became one of those projects that I never completed.  For many years I've had these picture filled frames just sitting around waiting for me to create something with them. 
I came across this paper from Prima Marketing Inc.  The colors and tones were perfect to create a layout using the frames. 

I layered the frames attaching some with pop up adhesive. 

The letters for Family Tree were originally grey, so I used a sponge to cover with brown ink to tie it in with the paper and frames.

Supplies used:
Patterned Paper - Prima
Metal frames - Michael's
3D letter stickers - American Crafts
Brown ink - Close To My Heart
Pop up adhesive
Glue dots
Paper trimmer
Thanks for looking ~ Michelle
