Biltmore - last page

Okay, finally done with the layouts for our Biltmore trip so many years ago. And now I've decided I'll make my own album from scratch, cross your fingers. I'll post it when done.

This is just a wrap up page I like to do for our trips with a big pocket (this one with copper mesh) to hold maps, receipts, brochures and any notes. I used my NEW ATG gun on this, I think I'll like it.

The pocket I made with rough cb cut into 2 frames, lined with the extra thick adhesive that comes in a big sheet, needed something thicker to hold the copper mesh. Slipped copper over one frame, other frame on top of that. There are no sharp edges of copper that way. Then covered the frame with mitred pp, all from Cosmo Cricket.

Tina, this is what I was inking up my fingers with!!! Grungeboard hinges, inked them with copper catseye, kept the little "holes" and ran them back and forth over black ink, dropped a dab of glue into each hole and popped the black inked holes back in as fake nails. Kewl huh!


Had to share this pic of Yoda, funny how the camera caught his tail LOL!
