Jacob Alexander...

Have you tried working with Printer's Trays ? (or similar)
Until recently, I hadn't either !
My very first one, which you can see in this post HERE is technically referred to by Kaisercraft as a "photo display".
But just recently, Collections Elements released some gorgeous mini chipboard Printer's Trays, and I just knew I had to try them... I have made one for each of my boys.

Today, in honour of his most outstanding achievement at the NSW PSSA State Athletics Team trials, I will share Jacob's with you. For those not on FB, Jacob trialled for high jump and long jump. He came 4th in high jump (first reserve) and 3rd in long jump. His long jump result puts him into the NSW team to compete at the National Athletics Carnival in Darwin NT, in September !
So very proud !


And some detail shots:





These trays were really quite easy to put together, and were finished in no time at all. I think the longest part was the waiting for the paint to dry ! I have used an assortment of papers and embellishments, including Crate Paper Toy Box; October Afternoon; Jenni Bowlin; Kaisercraft; Echo Park and 2Crafty.
