Scrapology June Layout Challenge - What a Hoot

This month Scrapology are hosting a Blog Candy Hop so if you have arrived at my blog either from Anita's blog or under your own steam - hello! If you arrived here under your own steam and would like to join in the Blog Hop then why not hop to Scrapology to start at the beginning.



For June the Scrapology design team chose to scrap lift a layout by Cindy Tobey and decided on stitching as our theme/technique.


I used some quite old papers from Three Bugs in a Rug's 'What a Hoot!' collection which I thought perfect for a scrapbook page about the cuddly owl I made last month. Apart from the patterned papers the only other supplies I used were some Bazzill Card Stock and some buttons. It doesn't show awfully well in the photo but I layered up images cut from the paper to add some dimension and also machine stitched around the page and edges of the photos.




Here is Cindy's original layout which uses gorgeous papers from Fancy Pant's 'Beach Babe' collection......




......and, here's the sketch if you want to play along and have a go at creating a similar layout.
