Hello Blue Eyes (Lets Get Sketchy)

Hello Hello, can you believe that today is the final for the year over at Lets Get Sketchy!  Its been an amazing 7 months since I joined the Design Team, and I'm so excited about continuing to create with the girls next year.

This week is the 5th Monday of December, which means a special reveal.  Brenshevia Baker came up with an awesome Bingo board, and the challenge is to scrap a row.  I chose the bottom row (butterflies, chipboard, frame, stitching and doily) as it contains several of my favourite things.  Here is my layout, all about my daughter as a baby and her blue eyes (before they turned brown):

I used Crate Paper's Close Knit Collection, with a Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper frame, some tissue paper, and white cardstock which I machine stitched around the border.  I just adore the chipboard pieces from Close Knit, and this challenge was a great opportunity to use some of them.  I made by butterflies with my Stampin Up Punch, and sewed vellum over white cardstock.

Here is a close up:

And here is the Bingo card so you can play along.

This was such a fun challenge, do make sure you play along and link up your layout over on the blog.

Have an awesome New Years!
