I am totally in love with this layout. I love the papers I used - Free To Be Me from Close to my Heart. I love the circles. I love the distressed papers, the vellum, the feathers and all the little touches here & there but most of all, I love the real stitching!
I always hesitate to actually use real stitching on my layouts because I fear I may mess it up but I forged ahead and breathed a sigh of relief when I finished and it looked great! I thought at first that maybe I went a little over the top with the embellishing but the more I look at it, the more I like it. I hope you do, too!
Most supplies used are Close to my Heart except as noted:
Free To Be Me paper pack, C1584 Feathers stamp set, Z1853 Aqua Dots, Z1844 Trinkets Wooden Shapes, Smoothie & Lagoon inks plus chipboard letters that are no longer available, white thread and sewing machine by Singer.
