While touring the Houston Space Center a few years ago we passed by this grove of trees. The tour operator informed us that this was a Memorial Garden and that each tree represented an astronaut who has died during the programs. It was quite a beautiful way to honor their memories. For this page I used Kreaxions Punch #312 with Templates A and B. This punch is SO versatile!!!
I created a border piece by using the cut outs from another page. Then I used more cut out pieces at the top of my large photo mat. And finally I used another border of cut out pieces underneath the longer border. Using a Xyron X is the best way to use those little itty bitty pieces and to not waste them! And finally I even added a few cut out pieces across the top of one of the tags to create a third border on the page. I finished all the cut out pieces off with a little dab of Stickles to make them pop!
