forgive the photography

I've stamped acetate and placed it across the photos. How hard is it to get a decent shot!!! I've taken about 40 pics of this layout and this is the best I can get it. I've used Little Yellow Bicycle love letters paper, acetate, maya road chipboard tree, bazzill scalloped edge and the stamps are Heidi Swapp, Hero Arts and Autumn Leaves (trying to keep promise to self to use my stamps on pages more often).

A couple of weeks ago I bought a Basic Grey magnetic cutting mat. Apart from a bit of cutting this is the first layout I've done that I used it for. I love it. It is like having four extra hands. The little magnets hold everything in place and each time I picked something up to apply adhesive the little magnets were able to be used like guides to where it was to be stuck. No more knocking my page and bumping stuff all over, and also when I'm trying to work my pages out, I like to hold them up and look at them vertically. Love it!! Best tool I've bought in ages. Got it here.
