So fun to sleep in the cottage!

This layout is made for September Challenge at Kraft it up! The challenge is to use fabric or stitching on the layout. So fun! I love that, but for some reason I don’t do it often. So I take the opportunity to do it now!

This picture is taken when our daughter should go to bed in her grandparents’ cottage. She was so thrilled and thought it was so exciting. Watching her woke a lot of good memories for both me and her father. We both felt the same way when we were kids and were to spend the night somewhere…

As this memory is from a cottage I wanted the layout to have sort of a country feeling. I thought it was suitable with fabric and stitching. The fabric strip comes from an old pair of jeans. I stitched it onto the cardstock with a machine.

I also stitched the letters in the title to make it look like a banner.

The journaling and the beginning of the title are found on the top left.

The flowers are made with dies and colored with ink. The background is decorated with ink, a mask and acrylic paint.

Thank you SO much for looking!!!
