Burlap and Buttercups Challenge

Okay, I think I made it in time. I said that I would try to get to this sketch challenge this month and I did. I finished it late last night, which is probably why the colors are a little dark, but hey, beggars can't be choosers.

This challenge was not only a sketch one, but you also had to incorporate a cell phone photo or a pattern paper cutout. My daughter is always taking cell phone pictures of herself and it irritates me because I want to scrap some of them and don't know how to print them.

For this layout, I finally convinced her to help me out. And she did, reluctantly, but hey, again, beggars can't be choosers. Once it was on my computer, I printed it out, and cut it to resemble a polaroid photo. I had to reverse the sketch to fit the orientation of the photo. And of course, I had to add some stitching.


Thanks for looking!

Dani
