First up, the Counterfeit Kit girls challenged us to "enter an online challenge". I've created a page based on this sketch from Australian company Scrapbook Supplies Online:
And here's my page:
I still stitched around the edge of my page, but I also stitched through the pinked circles, making them a bit more of a feature.
Gone are the days when I feel the need to follow a sketch exactly, but I've kept the overall feel of the sketch, and also found the perfect home for my bicycle paper! (I just cut a strip off the side which will make a perfect journalling spot on another page!
As well as stitching down my ric rac and around the edge of the page (of course) I also stitched the photo down, through the larger banners, and attached the title tag.
