Product Shuffle- packaging

I have been going through some older pictures while preparing a school project with my daughter.  My youngest is so calm, never wanting to bother anyone.  This picture I found was of her sleeping on the living room floor.  She had been on her blanket watching me and my oldest daughter playing a game and she just fell asleep there.  I had already scrapbooked that picture, but I wanted to do it again.  I still had my supplies from last week's product shuffle on my desk and I felt that it would be perfect for this layout.
This paper from My Mind's Eye Now and Then collection is just too pretty.  It was just asking to be fussy cut.

 So that's exactly what I did.  I fussy cut and layered the flowers and leaves.  I like how they pop off the page.
Even the packaging for this collection is pretty.  I incorporated the top part of a tag from the 3X4 cards on the side of my layout.  You can see the stripped scallop border hidden under the hearts border

To make the heart border I used the leftovers from the sticker sheet and glued it on coordinating pattern paper.  I then trimmed the paper and adhered it to my layout.  So basically, I'm using the negative of the stickers and making an accent piece.  Here is the sticker sheet I used, also from the Now and Then collection from My Mind's Eye
You see where the number stickers are?  I trimmed the sticker sheet so that I only had the number stickers.  I then removed the negative and glued it to pattern paper.  It made another accent piece under the picture.
To complete the layout I added Thickers by American Crafts, a button from My Mind's Eye and some Prima flowers and a Maya Road butterfly clip
I am very proud of how this layout turned out while using supplies that would normally have been thrown out.  I hope you like it too!
Have you ever used packaging on your layouts or cards?
Have a awesome day, and I'll see you on Saturday morning for our next sketch reveal.
