Stamp A Memory October Challenge: My Fears


Can you believe it's October already?  Where does the time go? Sigh...

Today's layout is my sample for the latest Stamp A Memory Challenge.  This month we are challenging you to scrap about your fears.  Here's my layout.  It's a CASE of one I saw in Australian Scrapbooking Memories Vol 13 No 11 page 64 by Karen Shady.

I've used the gorgeous new Beau Chateau DSP for the layout.  I wasn;t that keen on the papers to start with but once I saw them I was rather taken with them.  Here are some closer pictures of the top panels of the layout.

The rhinestone swirl was created using Stampin' Up!'s rhinestones and Swirls Scribbles Sizzlit.  I'll post some instructions in a couple of days.

I got my sewing machine out for this layout.  I stitched around the Vanilla Panel and I also stitched the lace pieces down.

I also sewed the Vanilla seam binding to the layout in gorgeous ruffles.

Lots of sponged edges on this layout too!

I hope you can find the time to enter the challenge at Stamp A Memory this month, it's a great one to get you thinking!
