MCT Stamp of the Month: Camera Shy

by Veronica

Hey there! If you haven't already heard on Emma's blog, starting today you can order Camera Shy, one of the two Stamps of the Month at a discount! How great is that?

This set is perfect for adding just a little bit of oomph to your photo frame projects. This photo was taken at my Bridal Shower last April. I just love the 'candid' shot as I turned around to look at the photographer (my brother) while my (now) husband was talking with guests. Having a photographer for a brother has taught me one important thing: When someone calls your name from behind you, turn around with a smile! You never know if there will be a camera in your face! *giggle*

To add some flair to this photo, I stamped the sentiment from Camera Shy and the heart from My One and Only onto a piece of white card stock which I mounted onto my patterned paper. All that was left to do was make it SPARKLE! I did that by gluing individual teal Jolee's Swarovski Crytals to the photo. Voila! Just a little spice to make this photo more than just another picture in a frame.

I hope you were inspired!
