Scrapping Recipe Challenge #43

This is my layout for Scrapping Recipe Challenge #43 at Sketches {by Tamara}.

For this recipe, we were to use the following on our cards or layouts:

  • stitching
  • brads
  • a flower cut from patterned paper

As soon as I saw that we needed to use a flower cut from patterned paper, I realized that I needed to finish the 2nd page of a two-page layout. Don't ask me why, but I did the first page almost a year ago, and I never finished the 2nd page!!

This is the first page that I did last April!

Here are the two pages together! I trimmed the first page a little on the sides, and I mounted both pages on blue cardstock. For the stitching, I added three cross stitches to both pages. I also added a trio of heart brads to the 2nd page. The title is QuicKutz, the stamps are by Autumn Leaves, and I added a bunch of red rhinestones. You can click on the pages to see them larger. I think this is a very cute two-page layout, and I'm glad I finally finished it!!

I'm off to vote today, and I'm also going to the dentist for a cleaning. Hopefully, I'll be in and out at the dentist!! I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!

What beautiful girls and your LO is fabulous! I miss the days when I could do my girls hair and watch what styles they came up with themselves :)

Great photos. I love the girls crimped hair. My puppy's fur goes like that naturally when it gets long!

He's gone for his fur cutting today though. I'm just hoping he doesn't come back too short like he did the last time. We took a photo in of how he looked afer his last hair cut and said "This is how we DON'T want him to look!"
I've taken a before pic and will take another when we get him back this afternoon so you can see the before and after shots. Fingers crossed he'll come back looking good!

Sorry digressed a little there... back to your scrapbook pages! Love the photos, love the swirls and I love the flowers. These are fab pages Carol.

Happy crafting!
