Book Name Plate- Digi My World style

This is challenge #10 at Digi My World blog.  You Light up my life...something you can't live without...i thought about my grandkids and also the children's books i want to read to them.  I chose to make a Book Plate using two different images from Digi My World shop here and here.  You could just purchase the one set and change out the boy behind the bookcase...the boy i used was from the alphabet set and was free for a week. :)



Blonde hair version:

 What i did:
For this challenge, i chose two really cute images and layered them using the PNG format.  I also had to "cut out" the letter B from the boy reading the book image.  Once i had them layered i added the "This book belongs to" underneath to get the right size.  I tend to cut out my images, but if you are much better at staying in the lines then i am you could use this as is.

I matted the image and the "belongs to".  Then i used my cricut cartridge Elegant edges and changed the proportions by unlinking the chain under the size and made the size to fit my matted image.
My intention is to scan this and reduce the size to have several fit on a 8.5 x 11 paper.  I also have a grandson with light brown hair and will change out the color for his books.
