the details

 Hello to you again ☺I have one last page to share using my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store.  I've basically used up the left over bits from my kit of Bella Boulevard - Snapshots.

 This page was more about the journal work - I think it's important to journal how we feel and share some of the more finer details.  Hopefully my boys will love to read this oneday ☺
I did a bit of machine stitching for this page too - here are some details:
 I've matted my photo onto pattern papers and then stitched in some papers and hearts together.  I really love that paper with the arrows!!  I have a sticker tab from this collection along the top of the photo - brother.
I didn't cover too much of the fantastic pattern paper with all the 'arty doodling' - very cool!!
I did my journal work on the computer and also matted it onto pattern papers and added in some stitching, cotton thread and a mini peg.  I just adore them ♥
The title is sticker letters from my stash and I've also stitched a line thru the middle.
The strip of star paper is from the 12x12 border sheet - these border sheets go a long way when you cut each strip individually - great for creating sections on your page too!!

Products used:
cotton thread
sticker letters
heart punch
machine stitching
MME sticker words
espresso ink
script stamp

Just a few more days left of this month - wow February went so fast.  I have some exciting paper collections to share next month, so can't wait for that.  Our sketch challenge is still up and running - a few more days left - check out the gallery - there are lots of great entries.
Thanks so much for coming by ♥
