Feeling Safe


Over at Scrappin-n-Chattin Yahoo group, we have a 24 hour sketch challenge. This month Ann chose for me and I had to use Echo Park's Beautiful Life collection and this sketch:

 Here is my take:

I did LOTS of stitching on this layout, I just LOVE the look and texture of it. I used my Sew Easy for the Hearts, and the other stitching along the banner and down the right side. Along the left side I felt it needed a little something, so I cut off a chunk and then added another piece of paper and "stitiched" it together.
Here is a close up of some of the stitching:

This is my Granddaughter Abby who doesn't care for storms and it was raining with LOTS of thunder and she was scared. SO, to make her feel "safe" she put her arm through my hubby's and then was still trying to eat. She is such a MESS!! LOL! But, I caught a cute moment.

I am linking up at Whimsical Twist for their Fall Texture challenge and also over at Frosted Designs for their challenge to add Texture.
