Fun with Picture My Life

I made some greeting cards using the smaller 3"x4" Picture My Life cards in the Babycakes kit.. I also used the CTMH corner rounder because it is exactly the same radius as the Picture My Life Cards. I used my sewing machine for some stitching and I used liquid glass to glue the Baker's Twine bows. Done!
