National Photography Month Layout

In celebration of National Photo Month I did this fun layout for Let's Get Peachy. 

The journaling tells this story: A friend of mine Lisa (also a Peachy Kat), is a very good photographer. She takes TONS of photos every where we go. We were at a crop in South Carolina and we were messing around. I was teasing her about being like the Paparazzi. She hopped behind a tree, one with no leaves and she was not even remotely hidden and pretended to be the Paparazzi and take a bunch of photos of our friend Teresa as she came out from the house we were staying in. We were all laughing so hard. 
Base Paper: Die Cuts With A View paper  
Letters: Bazzill cardstock -cut with the Cricut using Gypsy Font 
Camera: Black Cardstock from Walmart - cut with the Cricut using Going Places   
I repurposed two items: 
#1- the lens of the camera is a paper core that I painted with Viva Decor Inca Gold, I used Helmar 450 Glue to attach it. You can get these paper cores from my store:  
#2- the journaling tag is a hang tag - I added Glitter Glaze to the edges to kick it up a notch. You can get these from my store:
