Here's my layout of my DS a his school dance as a Cowboy. I loved this photo. Found it on the school noticeboard. This one was taken by the principal who came to the dance as Jack Sparrow. he looked great! Last year he was Elvis. He's a great principal! Anyway when I saw this on the noticeboard I had to have it.
This isn't a very miserly layout because I purchased a sheet of patterned paper especially for this layout but I did save with my embellishments. The little cowboy suit is a gift from my sister-in-law who had this as a left over from a layout of her own. The sheriff star is part of his outfit. I found the ribbon at my LSS and new the colours were a perfect match for his shirt so had to have them. The cowboy tittle is a leather look paper on chipboard letters. (Which I cut myself from free chipboard).
Now for the photo: I printed it twice. Once A4 size on canvas paper and frayed the edges and once wallet size so the true colours could be shown. The materials used for this layout cost: $2.80 for patterned papers and $1.20 for the ribbon..... so a total of $4.00 (not including glue or the printing of the photos) I purchased the canvas paper from Aldi for $9.95 for a pack of 20 so roughly 50cents a sheet. I have no idea of the cost of ink or how many prints I'll get per cartridge yet so sorry can't cost that adequately for you.
So again because of the size of the photo a pretty simple layout with minimal creative effort required on my part.
So feel free to leave me comments, positive or negative I don't mind I think you learn most from the negative ones anyway.
