Little Flower

I did a layout of Madison today that I'd like to share. My wonderful friend Peggy gave me a little challenge to use some stitching and handmade embellishments on a page, so decided to take her up on it! I tried not to think too hard while making the layout, but instead to just let my creative side take over a little more than usual.
I love the result!!



I did some stitching around the edges of the papers and also on the picture/mat. I really like the look it gives. Oh, and the embellishments that I made were the brown flower and the stem/leaves. It was so much fun! Totally not something I would usually do but definitely something I'll be doing again. Who knew? :)

April this is wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that you accepted the challenge, and it turned out so great. That flower is gorgeous and it just adds a playful touch to the LO, as do the stitches. I also love the double lined doodled border, it adds to the fun. Keep experimenting my friend!
