Take a look at the details and due date below, as well as the bright delight that inspired this challenge!

Step 1: Use the yellow toy mini-figures building blocks paper as the base.
Step 2: Using the 12-inch Trimmer, cut five 1″ x 12″ strips and two 1/2″ x 12″ strips from various designer and building blocks papers. Adhere two 1″ x 12″ strips and one 1/2″ x 12″ strips horizontally along top and bottom edges of base page. Adhere remaining 1″ x 12″ strip vertically along left-hand edge of base page.
Step 3: Using the 12-inch Trimmer or All-Purpose Scissors, cut seven 1″ x 2″ blocks from the multi-hued tessellated building blocks paper. Use Foam Squares to mount blocks in zigzag pattern over the edge of the vertical 1″ x 12″ paper strip.
Step 4: Using the 12-inch Trimmer, cut one 4″ x 4″ and one 4″ x 6″ photo mats from designer papers. Mount one 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ photo and one 3-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ photos on mats. Arrange between paper strips and adhere.
Step 5: Add embellishments and stickers in clusters as shown or as desired, using Foam Squares for added dimension. Cut a small piece from one of the lined tag embellishments and tuck under 4″ x 6″ photo. Journal on the tag with a Dual-Tip Pen.
