This week at Practical Scrappers our challenge is to STITCH on your layout. Machine stitch, hand stitch...even "faux" stitching is ok.
For this layout, I first adhered the photo to the white cardstock. I then stitched the 2 large rectangles...having them go on and off the photo. I then stitched the small rectangle around my son. I was actually thrilled with how straight I got the rectangles. Then, honestly....I got a mind block. This layout sat for 2-3 days and I just looked at it. Then I grabbed my Scrapbook Circle kit from Aug or Sept...(sorry don't remember which one...they are all so awesome). PP is Jillibean soup & Cosmo Boyfriend. That "bus" journal card is out of a Little Yellow Bicycle journal book (the coolest things in the world).
