Hello to Hybrid

I finally dipped my toe into the waters of hybrid scrapbooking. (Well, actually tonight I *broke* a toe, but that's a story for another post.) I was folding laundry one day this week and really stopped to admire the pattern on a shirt I had recently bought. Even my husband commented that it looked like something I would use in my scrapbooks. So I took a deep breath and started the process.

I placed the shirt on my scanner and scanned a portion of the back. After editing a bit in PSE I printed out a section to create a tag. With a little stamping, stitching, painting and coaching from Celeste I created my first hybrid project. I am happy with how the entire layout turned out - could be that cute photo of Mr. Matthew from his birthday a few days ago, huh?
This layout is also my example for the Fiber, It's Good For You challenge I'm running at SBO. Stop by and check out the fun prize you can win!
