Fancy Girls

Now THIS week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch is soooo fun!!! This is the 2nd layout I got "done" when Audrey and I got together this past weekend. 

My girls got dressed up for my Mother's Day lunch, from their glammed up shoes to their tiaras and little purses.  It was so sweet. Check them out...
Supplies: Teresa Collins Timeless "Time Clocks"; H of 3 Soiree "Floral" paper and Mini Notes & Labels; Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist in Charcoal; Pink Floss; square scallop punch; Sew Easy.

I just loved how versatile the House of Three mini notes are.  I punched them to little squares but they weren't popping on the paper, nor were my photos.  To help, I cut a circle and used the negative side to mask the background paper. Then I misted it with charcoal mist and hand stitched around it.  I used the Sew Easy tool, which I had heard wasn't worth the money but I disagree.  It saved me so much time and helped make sure my holes were evenly spaced. So that helped with the photos. I then outlined the squared with black ink and that really made them pop. Of course I couldn't have a layout without a bit of fussy cutting.

Now head over to Sketchy Thursdays to see what the other DT members did and play along with this amazing sketchy for your chance to win a great prize from EAD Designs.
