I made this photo tray (from 7 Gypsies) as a gift for my niece, Grace, for her 8th grade graduation.  She was recently in the "Suessical" the musical at her school and played the Cat in the Hat. She did a wonderful job! She had 22 people (family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends) in the audience all there for her big performance!  :)  I had to include that photo in the tray. I also included photos of Grace with her mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, family and friends. Gracie, you rock!

I used several Hero Arts stamps on this, as well as Lawn Fawn and Technique Tuesday stamps. I made ATC's and inserted them into the tray. I hope she likes it.

As always, thanks for stopping by. :)

supplies: Hero Arts stamps, shadow ink, gems, Lawn Fawn stamps, Kerri Bradford Silhouette image, Archivers flowers, 7 Gypsies tray, Bazzill dotted cardstock, My Minds Eye paper, Basic Grey paper, Fiskars punch and EK Success punch, Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  


  1. Beautiful, Kathy! What a special gift! Love the pink, black and white combo! Your niece will love this!

  2. This is really gorgeous, the bold pop of black and pink really shines! Love the fun photos and I saw this ATC shadow box a while back and it looks like so much fun to put together! Congrats to Grace! Musicals for kids are always heartwarming!

  3. Wow wow wow! All I can say is that Grace is super lucky to have a talented aunt like YOU! I love how you used the bright colors and focus for the photos! Simply outstanding, Kathy!
