Mojo's back

Hi Scrappers,

So a little break goes a long way when your scrap mojo's gone and what better way to get it back than by doing a challenge. This months challenge at Kraft it Up is to use fabric and stitching on your layout -

Can you spot the fabric? I'm afraid it's a little lame as my sewing skills are pretty much like my painting skills. Ie non-existent! I've used a piece of felt to mat the patterned papers. There's loads of stitching on there though, so I guess I've sort of redeemed myself! I've hand stitched a kind of flourish on there - hint: make sure you do this before you stick everything onto the card stock otherwise it will take about 3 hours and you'll have RSI in your fingers! I've also stitched a border around the October Afternoon paper and I've done a heap of faux stitching around the edge.

So I'm all stitched out now - but at least I'm happy with the layout, unlike the last few!
Happy scrapping!

Cheers and thanks for stopping by,
Claire xx
