The Sketch at the End of the Blog Hop
If you made it all the way through the Practical Scrappers Blog Hop this past weekend, you saw Liz Qualman's fantastic sketch featured on her BLOG! Of course, there was no way I could NOT create a layout made from it - even if I didn't follow the sketch exactly.
I had some wonderful papers from Echo Park's This & That Collection - designed by the amazingly talented LORI WHITLOCK (who also happens to design many of the Silhouette cutting files I often use)!
I love these EP papers because they are filled with wonderful shapes, images, and phrases that I can add to my layouts - layered and pop-dotted, of course - just the way I like them!
I distressed my papers to my heart's content, and I decided to give my sewing a "messy" look. My grandmother is probably rolling over in her grave at my complete disregard for straight, neat stitches; but I quite like the way it turned out.
Now, you didn't think I had forgotten about my little RAK that I was giving away, did you? I went to Random.Org since my daughter, who is my official pull-the-random-number-out-of-a-brown-paper-bag person, is at dance class. Random.Org generated the number 16, and the 16th person who left a comment was....RACHELLE, who said, "Now following your blog. Love your LO! Love the design and bellies. All your projects are beautiful. Time to hop along." Rachelle, if you will email me your home address (at firstname.lastname@example.org), I will get my RAK in the mail to you this week.
I want to thank each and every one of you who left such sweet, inspiring comments. They meant more to me than you will ever know. Have a wonderful week!
