I love the distressed look and lucky for me that is the twist over at Twisted Thursday Challenge at The Outlawz! Distress It! Maybe you want to distress one part or the whole project, or maybe you don't want to distress at all! That's ok since our twist is optional!

I started with a distressed shadow box I found on clearance at Kohl's. It already had burlap on the inside, so it was perfect for my distressed layout!
I cut the branch, leaves, banner, hearts, "sweet" card, and letters on the Cricut. Now the fun part, laying it all out to see how it will fit together. Once I had an idea of where I was going, I stamped, inked, and distressed the hearts, banner, picture, and several of the scraps of paper on the left.
I added ribbon, laces, gems, an old lace applique and a distressed bow to complete the layout. This now finds its home in my husband's home office. She was looking at him in this picture; she has been Papa's girl since she was born!
