*finally* Dream Valley Challenge 20 : Stitching

Good afternoon! I feel like I haven't blogged in AGES, things have been so crazy around here! Am I alone in wondering where the past couple of months have gone to? I am in shock that there are less than two weeks left until Thanksgiving...

This time around, we want to see stitching somewhere on your project over at Dream Valley Challenges. As always, you can make anything you'd like, as long as there is stitching incorporated somewhere (card, layout, home decor, jewelry...anything goes!)

I used my Scraptastic November Home Sweet Home kit for this pretty page, I am in love with the SC Farmhouse papers and embellishments!

The white floss I used for stitching came in the kit, as well as a few other colors, but I thought the white would show best on the turquoise background. I used the lid of a coffee can to trace out the circle, and then stitched over it. (Isn't that MLS glitter alpha to die for?)
Studio G brown glitter glue featured around the circles punched out of a piece of patterned paper. Red paper punched with a Fiskars edge punch.
DELICIOUS SC Farmhouse trim! I am in love with it (and too bad this was the last piece! Must. Have. MORE.) Mister Huey in pumpkin spice.
There you have it! Head over to Dream Valley Challenges and link up your creation today for the chance to win
You have two weeks! Have a great day, I hope to be able to create a little this week. We'll see what happens though...my plans all fall through lately, so I try not to commit to anything in my mind. That way, I can't let myself down...

Great layout. I can remember laying like that and getting a crick in my neck! I like the fact that there is a large plain area with all the pattern concentrated around the photos.
