I finished a layout tonight that I plan to enter into a monthly challenge for Graphic 45. It was a pretty easy one for August as the only requirement is that you have stitching on it. I'm happy how the page turned out. The black flower is actually an iron-on applique! I just happened to be in the thread aisle of my local department store and it jumped out at me. Black is one of my favorite colors and when I saw it I just knew that I would be able to use it in one of my projects.
A woman from Madison, WI came into Paper Studio today and loved all the cards I have displayed around the store. She thought that our styles are similar and asked if I would be interested in doing a card exchange with her. I'm pretty excited since I've never participated in one before and she seemed surprised by that. I will display her cards on my blog. Marilyn, get ready to receive my cards!
