Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr it's cold outside! We've had below normal temps here in Maryland this week. The weekend is suppose to warm up, then next week the temperatures drop again. I've finished my Christmas shopping, the house is decorated and I've begun baking Christmas cookies. It's hard to believe in two weeks it will be Christmas Eve.
We have a new challenge at Stuck On U Sketches today, and it is a Die Cut Paper Challenge. Floren, the owner of Generations Crafting, one of SOUS sponsors sent us some die cut papers by Bo Bunny. Thanks Floren! I had several to choose from and ended up using the Peace Die Cut paper from the Flower Child Collection.
I used papers from two Echo Park collections, A Walk In The Park and Sweet Summertime.
To add a little detail to my layout I stitched with some floss around the circle of the die cut paper and also around the smaller of the three clouds. I added a few birds and punched some butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch, and of course added a lot of pop up dots! The picture is of my daughter and my sister 18 years ago.
