Sew Much Fun Challenge & save-the-date :)

I'm a little late in posting this week's challenge from The Paper Variety. I've been without internet service for a few days.. again! I gotta admit, it really does drive me crazy to not be able to log on when I want/need to, but.. it's also nice to have computer-free time and do other things that need attention, too. Bittersweet :)

This week at TPV, the challenge is sew much fun! :)

For my project, I created a layout of yours truly when I was a baby back in 1973!! Awww! :) Recently in Scrappin-n-Chattin, we held a Baby Layout contest which prompted me to make this layout, otherwise who knows when I would have done it. I'm really glad that I did, though- I've scrapped just one or two layouts of my own childhood days - it's nice to add another :)

I used Echo Park "Little Girl". I bought the collection mostly just for some cute cards - but then was delighted I could use it for this layout as I don't have many other "girl" supplies. There is little hand stitching, but it's just enough for me :) I made the fan flowers myself and also painted the JBS corrugated alphas to better match the green in the collection. I still need to add my journaling, though :)

We hope you join the TPV challenge this week!!
There is a fantastic prize if you're the randomly chosen winner...

Fantastic, isn't it!? And so fitting for this challenge lol.


You'll definitely want to save this date... March 2nd !!
