The Studio Challenge Blog - we love you

 Hello.  Over the weekend, a new challenge went up at The Studio Challenges - add some stitching to your page - either by hand or machine stitching.  Easy and fun!!
Here's my DT inspiration:

I like to add stitching to my pages - sometimes using my machine and other times by hand - even though that takes a lot longer ☺  For this page, I used the WRMK Sew Easy Tool to create the stitching line and then I hand-stitched in the white thread.  I love the contrast of it against the blue pattern paper.
I've used the Pebbles - Family Ties collection with some Prima flowers and trinket - here are some close-up's:

 The lovely Prima vines, blossoms and trinket.  I've also created some texture to the background with texture magic and a stencil.
 A close-up of the stitching and a crochet doily -  I still have these in my stash!!
And some of the cute stickers and words in the Family Ties collection - I've lined them up to create a small banner.

For more details about this challenge - pop over to The Studio Challenge blog - also check out the inspiration from the Design Team - we hope you can play along ☺

This is very lovely, the design is simple yet elegant in a way you also did a great job on the colors you used. I'm buying my haberdashery and crafting kit this weekend to make my first scrapbook.
