Stitching, Flags, Flowers and Brads


Two things about this layout: I needed to finally scrap this picture and I  wanted  to use a
sketch I found on Pinterest.  The paper used is So Happy Together by Echo Park:  
Happy Stripes, Garden Paper, and Jot it Down. I also used some red and blue brads - Love brads!!!







A little secret about me as a scrapbooker...I am TERRIBLE about journaling.  
See that journal box that is not written in - Uh Oh!!  

Happy Scrapping,

  1. I can totally relate about not journaling! I rarely journal on my layouts. "/ This is a really cute layout either way!

  2. Lovely layout! Great sketch too!
    And...I also love those papers! I have that petite paper pad and
    I used it a LOT!
    I totally understand you about "not journaling"..I'm the same...
    I leave room for it on my layouts but always keep the journaling for ...
    when I feel like it (doesn't happen often) HAHA I just like to create..
    Have a great Sunday!!!

    1. Crystal, thanks for your kind words. I am going to remember what you said and try to journal more. It is about our kids knowing our thoughts and the story.

  6. Very cute? How do you do the stitching? Is it with those handheld punture things or can you really sew things on a sewing machine?

    1. Hello. I did the stitching with a we r memory keeper tool. You could do stitching on a sewing machine but I haven't tried that yet. I have a very non-cooperative sewing machine.

  10. Love your results from the sketch! Great job! The colors really brighten up the picture. I'm not much of a scrapbooker, I'm more of a card/DIY kind-of girl. =)
