Project 12 and other news...

Wow, just squeaked my project 12 September in on the last minute. How did I forget to keep doing this layout? Well here is the sketch for September:
and this is what I came up with:
I used some papers from Studio Calicos kit (June I think????) as well as some Cosmo Criket that also matched (another sheet was in the SC kit) and I also added my own embellies. I did a aper peat that I also machine stitched over. I really like how this turned out since I never used primary colours like this. You can still squeeze your LO in by October 20. Go here for details.

I also decided to play along with Candy Shop Designs this month. The challenge was to be fake!
I thought using Sassafras Mix and Mend was the perfect match for this challenge:
It already has the faux stitching and coffee stains. I also added my own "coffee stain" using Studio Calico coffee stain stamp. It blended in perfectly. I also used the bottom trim from the sheet of paper to make a faux fabric ruffle trim and for the photo I made it look like it was a photo transfer when in fact all I did was print on patterned paper. Not the best photo of me but I think the layout turned out pretty good for being all fake ; )
The best part about this challenge is Blue Moon Scrapbooking is the sponsor!!!! I love them so much.
It's always fun to play along with the Lollipop girls. Go here for details!
