I created this layout for a contest on the PageMaps Blog. The contest was to create a layout based on the sketch below. The prize is the Studio Callico Cotillion kit shown below that. Wish me luck!This picture is from this summer at Lake Mille Lacs. I am so Grateful, Thankful, & Blessed to have such a beautiful and healthy family.

This is the new Amber Road line from Pink Paislee. Isn't it gorgeous?

I stitched all over this layout. I didn't have any thread the color that I wanted, so I used some ivory. I then used an eyeshadow applicator and inked my thread using Close to My Heart Cranberry Ink.

The stamps are from the same line. They are stamped in Close to My Heart ink New England Ivy and clear embossed.

The bling is Zva Creative. This was the first time I tried this type of bling. I really like them.

I hand cut the flowering tree from a sheet of patterned paper, then I cut some additional flowers and popped them up over the top to add some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by!
