Be Inspired #84 Photo Challenge

Boy am I excited.  This is my first Challenge as a Design Team Member of Cuttlebug Challenge.  It is such a honor to asked to join this fabulous team.  The challenge for this week is Photo's.  I first thought of Father's Day coming up so I decided a wonderful gift for my Dad was in order.  He absolutely loves his Grand kids so I decided to make him a Post-it note holder. 
I used an acrylic photo frame 5X7 for the base.  The leather looking paper is a paper sack that I cut to 5X7 and ran it through the Cuttlebug with the Hounds tooth folder.  The I used umber Versa Color ink pad and ran it over the top.  I used Stretch Your Imagination cartridge and cut out the wonderful photo book.  The whole in the middle wasn't quite big enough so I used small scissors and cut up both side about 1/2 "  then folded it back and taped it.  I placed the picture behind the photo book and taped them to the "leather paper".  I added a piece of ribbon across the middle.  I then placed the page in the photo frame and taped the top so that it was secured.  I used Tear-ific tape to tape the post-it notes to the frame.  I can hardly wait to give it to my pops....
