The layout is inspired by Sketchy Thursdays plus further inspiration from Scrap-It-lah. Below are the criteria on Scrap-It-lah's Elia's October Challenge:
1. Old book paper, sheet music or something similar downloaded off the internet & printed out.
3. Hand-stitching using embroidery floss.
Here's my layout:
|Priceless photo of all 3 generations! Alas, Lucas is fast asleep here but oh well, it's still a wonderful shot nonetheless. It's not easy to get everyone together for a photo opp :) Hubby's the one in the center with the wide smile holding Lucas.|
|Sketch 10.27 on Sketchy Thursdays. Love this sketch! The flaglines are so cool :)|
I'm using Simple Stories' Generations collection here. Just simply LOVE this collection! Here are some close-ups:
|Title says: "3 Generations of Chin Together" (Chin is my husband's family surname). Some fussy-cut flowers here as well.|
|Scrolls made with old book paper and tied with floss. The doily shape is fussy cut and hand-stitched with floss.|
|Border die cut with Spellbinder and hand-stitched with floss|
|Background is spray misted with some TA in Red Velvet. The flagline is held together by these gorgeous MM antique copper brads and more floss.|
I'm glad I managed to complete this LO and upload in time, thankfully Lucas decided to take a long nap today otherwise I don't think I would have made it! *pheeewww* :) Anyway there's still time to play-along, so head on over to Scrap-It-lah's and Sketchy Thursdays now :)
Thanks for looking! Have a lovely weekend ahead :)
