I used Noel's 31st kit. The polka dot background is the transparency (make sure to take off the the protective film before using). I attatched it by stapling it to the white cardstock.
Underneath the big I place a circle a little bit smaller than the one on the transparency. It added a bit of color to the page.
To make my photo pop I made one black and white and one color. I also matted it and used pop dots to make it stand out. And can I just say right now how much those Pink Paislee alphas rock? I love them and those little swooshes add a perfect finishing touch.
