This month, we are challenging you to add a little something different to your layout (besides a photo of "YOU" ) Somewhere, you will need to incorporate sewing on your layout. It is times like these, that I wish I had a sewing machine in my scrap room. I've held off getting one, but, I do love the look of layouts with machine stitching .... maybe someday I will breakdown and purchase one -who knows? Here is the official Challenge - check out the CY BLOG for complete rules and PRIZE info!
And here is my Inspiration Layout for you:
|This photo was taken this past May on our Disney Wonder Panama Canal Cruise. I love this "LIFE IN COLOR" paper line from Simple Stories, don't you?!!|
|Here is a close-up of my stitching. I used an old template I've had forever to punch the holes, and then threaded white embroidery floss through them.|
|Can you find the "hidden" Mickey?|
|I used lots of papers and embellishments that coordinate with this "Life in Color" paper line - it really is one of my favorites - I love the colors and the wonderful messages it states!|
Thanks for stopping by - I can't wait to see what you come up with for this challenge - I hope this layout inspires you to play along with us at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!
