What Knockers!

Last year, while I was in Europe, I was always looking for interesting door knockers, windows, doors, etc. I came home with a whole collection of great examples. On this layout, I used the grid collage element of Picasa (love this free photo storage and editing program!!) to arrange some of my knockers photos in a square grid. I then used Spellbinders die (the lion is a die that I designed) and a photo cutout, along with a little humor from the movie, "Young Frankenstein" to put the layout together. Notice that I have the lion used as a mirror image. We call this "reflections". You simply cut out the die and then remove it from the die, postion it on the OTHER side of the die and emboss. Your lion will be headed in the opposite direction on the embossed side.
I can't leave without replying, "Thank you, doctor" (movie reference)
