Some BIG news and a Sketchy Thursdays and Cocoa Daisy sketch...

First, my BIG news is that I made the kit design team at Magpie Club!!!!!  I will be working with Tara's wonderful kits and I CAN'T wait!!!!!!    I "met" Tara and was introduced to her kits last February.  I won one of the weekly drawings for doing a sketch at Sketchy Thursdays.  She sent me such a nice note with my prize and I have followed the kit blog ever since.  I am so excited to be a part of this team!

And as always, I loved this weeks sketch at Sketchy Thursdays!!!   I have had these photos printed forever.  I made these dresses for Charlotte last July (and hope she still fits in them this year).  There are such cute fabrics out there, so I got into the sewing mode.  I had these four photos printed and the fit this weeks sketch perfectly!





Um, so can you tell why else i did this page?  It's al Lily Bee products (mostly).  :)  I used a clothing tag label that I had in my sewing stuff as an emebllie, and I used a piece of a sewing pattern which I punched to place below this flower.



I stiched around every piece of paper and the title die cut area, too.  I used more sewing pattern for a ruffle on the bottom left here:


Next up I used a sketch from Cocoa Daisy and used my March Cocoa Daisy kit with it.  I went to a crop last Friday and didn't bring the sketch with me, so had to work from memory.  I used papers to represent the rectangles in the sketch and then added two photos.



My journaling wasn't showing up great on this paper, so I painted an area in white to make it show up better.  I also added a bit of red stitching to complement the other red areas on the page.

I layered some of the elements from the kit, too.  Love these canvas BG tags!


TFL today!  Have a great week!!!!!

First of all, that Lily Bee layout? Precious! I am digging it for sure. Secondly, here's another Magpie saying hello! Congrats on making the team. Also, did you know I enjoy all things green, too? And chocolate covered pretzels? But I am not so fond of sushi, I'm afraid. -.- ;)
