Dream Big...

My poor forgotten blog. I haven't really forgotten it, but last week was just crazy busy with Halloween and then I had a sick child on top of it. Since I haven't gotten alot of stamping time in lately, I'm sharing an book that I made using Dixie Pieces October kit.

I cut a 8x4 and 2 4x4 pieces from the canvas, found in the kit. The flower was created by wetting pieces of crepe paper with a water/vinegar mix and letting the color bleed onto the canvas. Once the color was dry I roughly machine stitched some petals in to define the flower. I added some layered buttons for a center. The sides were machine stitched to the cover and a handmade graph paper notebook was slipped inside the cover. The final touch was an inspirational sentiment from Molly Stamps, stamped on the cover.

And I have to thank two super sweet friends, Andrea and Tammy for giving me this award. You girls ROCK! Thank you!!!
