"Life"
The Mirror Technique

The sentiments from this stamp set are great for the chalk board effect.  I used some White Daisy Ink Pad and black cardstock to showcase the sentiment.  The stamp set can be used not only on your traditional scrapbook layouts, it's also perfect for the Picture My Life scrapbooks.  This layout also features my take on the mirror technique. You will notice that the same elements are present on both sides of the layout.
