oh my gosh!
Let me just start by saying I am so thankful and appreciative of the comments on yesterdays post. I am moved beyond words! I try really hard to keep things upbeat and positive here because I want to keep you coming back. But I also try to keep it real. And we all known that life isn't always beautiful and positive. Sometimes it's ugly and it hurts. I'm a firm believer in the adage "What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger" And sometimes what seems like the end of the world is just a new chapter. Each and every one of you are so amazing and I am so blessed to call you my friends!!!
So before I cry again here is a big hug for you all!!
So I sat yesterday and decided to do a scrap layout.....and I had the brilliant idea to hand stitch, my fingers are still sore! I had also bought a zig zag head for my sew perfect and used it along with some bakers twine. And my K&Co fall die cuts....and I'm tellin you, the combo just rocks!! I worked on this until last last night, mostly because the hand stitching and distressing took a lot of time. But at the moment this is my fave layout of all time!!!
ALL of the papers are Crate Papers Restoration, Die Cuts K & Co, random buttons, Title letters from Pink Paislee's Captivate (they are wood grained) and journaling letters from Glitz.
I'm entering it in the following challenges:
The Paper Variety recipe Challenge: 1 pumpkin, 2 word title, and 3 buttons :)
Scrapbookers Anonymous Alphabet Challenge: C is for "Crate Paper"
Stuck on U Sketches: die cut fence (iffy since I hand cut it but they will let me know!!)
Bird is The Word: "Wish"
Crate Paper Color challenge: Mustard Yellow, Khaki, and Sea green
Sketches In Thyme: Octobers Open Challenge
And last but not least I got the whole layout idea from Scrap Book challenges: This is a scrap lift of one of the Pick Of The Week, which is this awesome page from Lydia :)
