Picking Strawberries

It's Friday and that means a new challenge over at Frosted Designs!  This week's challenge is to use border punches.  That's any easy one for me, because between my Fiskars and Martha Stewart border punches, I have a lot to choose from!
One of my favorite border punches is the scallop punch by Fiskars.  I used it here on my Picking Strawberries layout.  I used a combination of papers from October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket.
I used another old picture I got from my mom of my grandfather picking strawberries.  I used some inks to add a little color to the picture.
I love these foam alphabet thickers by American Crafts.
Thanks for stopping by!
