I want to highlight a fabulous new paper pack from Creative Memories; it's called Rustic Manor. Don't let the name throw you off - this is very versatile paper, with leaves, twigs, wood, and other natural elements. The papers look like photos themselves, and have a lot of depth. They look as though each would feel different to the the touch!
I used Rustic Manor for a zoo layout - a fun first-grade field trip. There are no coordinating embellishments, so I used some zoo stickers from my stash, along with brown and green cardstock, and paper from Creative Memories "Stone" pack.
