New layout and new carpet!

You have no idea how excited I am! The carpet installers are just about finished and I finished another layout!! WOHOO!!

Here is my take on sketch #184 from Creative Scrappers. I used the November 25th challenge from My Scraps and More to scrap my daughter's school picture. The big title was a chipboard piece from Crate Paper. And the fun stars are from Michael's.
I also went waaay out of my comfort zone and used my newest tool...The Sew Easy stitching tool from We R Memory Keepers. It's "sew" much easier than I thought it would be! I used the nifty little tool to pre-punch the holes on the circle and then I hand stitched it. It actually took me less than 10 minutes to do the whole thing....and that included breaking out the circle cutter!
So now I feel comfortable enough to use this for the stitching challenge from ScrapFit. :)

I need a little more practice before I try the other stitching styles that came in the package. But it's a start! No more faux stitching for me! :)
