I did this page for a challenge at Dixie Pieces. It's called the "Big Bummer End of Summer SENSE-ational" Contest. There's 4 weekly challenges and they give you a color scheme, a certain technique you have to use, and a topic. This week's theme was the "scents of summer". So I scrapped a pic of my sister and my oldest son, Ethan, at our family cabin. I did a "top 10 scents of summer" journaling spot to list all of the things that remind me of summer. You can check out the challenge at http://dixiepieces.com/
The technique that we were supposed to use was stitching, so there had to be some sort of hand or machine stitching on our pages. This is the first time I've done any stitching on my pages, and I quite liked it! Although very time consuming, I believe I am going to be getting my sewing machine up and running in the very near future! I love doing challenges like this though, because it, well, challenges me to do things that aren't necessarily in my comfort zone, or things I wouldn't have thought to do before...color combos or what not...I'm looking forward to seeing what next week's challenge is! I'll keep ya posted!

Or what kind of cool die cuts I used! hehe okay, now I'm just being a dork...I think I'm sleep-tarded or something...I'm going to bed!
