DT Practical Scrappers - Stitching

Today the On Trend team of Practical Scrappers is up with a favorite of mine: stitching! I use stitches on almost every project, I just love the extra touch that it gives. The only thing is that I totally can't handle a sewing maching, so I have to do it all by hand which takes a lot of time...

On this layout I went a little crazy with the stitching and stitched almost every paper, but in the end I love the effect of it. This photo is taken last April during Jan's first visit at Disney World, he loved all the princesses. And they fell in love with him too... :-)

October Afternoon: Midway Carousel paper, Farm Girl Berry Basket paper, Farm Girl Tidbits, Sugar Shack label stickers, Mini Market Green & Cream
