Oh Sew Fun

One of my fave scrappers is Becky Novacek. She issued a challenge for us to sew on our layouts. I sew often -- but I decided to take it up a notch...and use fabric a lot more than I normally do. I had some fabric left over from a baby quilt I had done -- and I didn't want to throw it out -- but there wasn't much left...(yes I know -- thus is the rationalization of a certified "pack rat") -- so I decided to use it on this challenge layout.

I have some hidden journaling that reads:
There is journaling that you can't see that says: Little girls grow into young laides all too fast. I pray that you will always take time to build castles and to dream of joy. Sandcastles are there for a moment and then gone -- but the time is still well spent in building them. Your dreams will last a lifetime. Take time to do both kinds of things...those that are for the moment and those that will last much longer. They will both enrich your life.
Hope you are all set for a great weekend.


  1. Wonderful! I actually thought that I would sew on a layout too today. I just need to get out the ol' sewing machine and start stitching.

  2. Wow! That is awesome. Such sweet journaling

  3. Oh, that is beautiful!

    I found your blog through the scrapnmemories blog. :) I'll be back, and maybe one of these days I'll make it to a crop at "Tammy's store" as my 2 year old calls it.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by for a visit and commenting! Your input means a lot to me. Have a great day! ~Jann
