"Catch some air" is also a sticker from the same set. One of my favorite kind, (That is if I have to use stickers!) it is clear, so when you apply it, the color of your background paper shows through. Having already picked a matching CS & distressing & matting it to match the page makes the sticker look like it belongs to the layout. Not to mention putting it next to a picture were my son is definitely getting some "air"! I love this photo! Jimmy plays with such intensity. He does not like to lose & does his best to help his team to a win.
Just a couple of more hints. Placing the "catch some air" sticker a little over the picture pulls the embellishment onto the layout instead of making it look like it was "plopped". The open spot on the diamond paper is were journalling can placed. The Barn Red CS is also stamped & distressed. I used film strip matting with the photos, it saves a lot of time & looks great.

Just plain white daisey CS stamped with "Best Shot". Look how much it changed the look when I added hollyhock & black ink. I love to distress & have a really hard time using paper with a white background. Adding color with stencil brushes or a sponge really pulls the look together as shown on the scrapbook pages.
