Week 2 of Project Scrapaway

It's been a busy week! I didn't get the Week 2 challenge done till tonight! This time we were asked to do a sketch that

1. Had one photo or more
2. Had hidden journaling
3. Had stitching, by hand or machine (I added faux stitching by hand! Hope it counts!)
4. Was about a life-changing experience
5. Oh dear I cannot remember the last one!

I completed a page about becoming a new mother.That was certainly a life changing experience for me, and also for my child! You can see my 'hidden journaling' tag I am sure. I made the flowers with a heart punch and a shaping tool (tutorial on PaperCraftCentral coming soon!) and I enhanced them with Creative Memories metallic pens - silver, gold and copper. I doodled the swirls as well. Hmm you can't see the faux stitching very well in the photo, but it is all around the circle as well as on the strips of paper in front of and behind the circle.

Hope you like it!

such a fab take on the challenge Susan ! you go grrl ! lol .

I'm trying out some vintage, shabby style too just to change gears sometimes! The European scrappers who are very technique based have been most inspirational recently ! lol
