This projects was done for the challenge blog "The Crafters Cafe." The theme for this week is vacation. (Boy, wouldn't I love to go on one, but I just started graphic design school!)
The digi image I used for this project comes from Lacy Sunshine. I believe the image is called "gone fishing."
I recently bought myself 10 or 12 Kraft binders in various sizes to fill up with artistic planners and art journaling. I filled one up with weeks 1-18 of the Color Me Positive art journaling challenge. But the binder itself looked dull.

I attached my girl using "scrap dots" by Helmar adhesives. It gives demension to your project without using those foamy stickers:
I grabbed some chipboard letters and gave them a coat of gesso:
