Crazy About You Layout ~ Basic Grey Sketch

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Hey Everyone..
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 
I just got back from driving around town, played with the kids at the park and did a little shopping :D It's a beautiful day today here in Lincoln...full of sunshine and a little wind. We all had so much fun.

Now that I'm back at home, I want to share a layout that I actually finished yesterday morning. This layout was based on a sketch over at Basic Grey Blog.
They always have a weekly sketch challenge and I always find myself in love with the sketches. So, I decided to give this week challenge a try.

So, here's the sketch...

and here's my creation,

I don't usually scrap pictures of me and my hubby. Ever since the kids popped out...the photos are always focus on them. So..every time I find a good picture of us, I try to scrap them right away.

Now...if you're wondering about the stitching, here's the story.
I recently bought a sewing machine from my local craigslist. It was a good deal, and I was super excited. I have always LOVEd stitching on scrapbook layouts. However, I didn't know how to use sewing machine. 
So, after months putting the machine in the closet, I finally took it out {last week} and learned. 

I did several straight stitching ...and realized how easy and fun the machine is. Then I decided to do the whole layout...{the layout on the top}and it went a bit out of control. LOL. yeah....
I probably should learn to do it on a scrap paper..but I'm not that patient.

To be honest...I really don't mind the stitching at all. It actually went well with the title ' Crazy about You'.

Well...that's my layout for today, and I hope you enjoy my crazy love story about my {new} sewing machine.
Take Care..OOooooHHhhh and don't forget to turn your clock an hour ahead tonight {dang...I hate the day light saving time in Spring}.
Later Scrappers.
