Hand Stitching & More

Does anyone remember this song...
♪ ♫ I'm Mr. Snow Miser, I'm Mr. Snow,
I'm Mr. Icicle, I'm Mr. 10 below... ♫ ♪

Mr. Snow Miser full on came to visit Utah this morning... bbbbbbrrrrr

Today the girls all hand stitched on their layouts...
Hand stitching is such a fun way to add a little character to your layout.

Memories are Stitched With Love

 Designer Tip: Use a stencil to draw on your pattern, then use a push pin to poke holes in
the paper which makes it easy to stitch. Once I started, I had so much fun I added some 
stitched leaves to the flowers on the patterned paper.
 Designer Tip: Play with straight stitches and zig zags to add more patterns to your borders.
