Hello and Happy (almost) Friday! lol It's time for another Fabulous Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs and this week's challenge is Sewing (machine, or hand stitching). That one's easy hey?! Even easier when you cheat like me! haha
I used a "pre stitched" paper by We R Memory Keepers, which worked out perfectly for me because I love the look of a sewing machine stitch on my layouts, but I am pretty impaired with a sewing machine, and the other day I went to use mine, and I pressed something on the foot (I think that's what it's called) and it fell off! I have yet to figure out how it goes back on...pray for me...I think I'll need it! lol
So I was super grateful to have this paper in my stash! I could have hand stitched it, but I wasn't feeling the love with hand stitching, so... there you go!
This week's sponsor is Prairie Bird Boutique. They have some faaabulous vintage ribbon and beautiful buttons among other goodies. You'll definitely want to head over there and check it out, and play along for a chance to win some yummy prizes too!
I soooo love this picture of all my boys! Chris brought home those mechanic hats from work one day and each of the boys put one on and posed for me. They're so great to indulge me with my need to take pictures of EVERYTHING!
I have been wanting to ink up this stamp from my Tim Holtz set since I got it, and I figured what better time than on a layout with all my boys in mechanic's hats?! I used Ranger Archival ink and my new Distress Pens *eeeek!* Love them!!!
Well there you have it! Don't forget to play along with us this week and go do some shopping at the Prairie Bird Boutique!
