I Won My First Scrapbooking Blog Challenge!!!!

I know I have been away for quite a while, and I do apologize for that but I have been super busy participating in various challenges over at My Sketch World. Lucy Chesna is the creator of this blog and her and her DTs post some amazing challenges on the MSW Forum every month. Well, back in May there was a challenge posted on the MSW Blog by Tara Thynne and the challenge was called "In Stitches". Tara asked you to "do some hand stitching on your layout!! Be brave and try this easy to do technique. You can use any of Lucy's featured sketches as the foundation of your layout. Load your layouts in the gallery and email it to me." Needless to say, the hand stitching intrigued me so I decided to give it a try. Here is the layout I made and entered:

Here is a close-up of the hand stitching I included on my layout:

I used a Bazzil template and I am hooked on the hand stitching. I have since bought another set of templates, this time with Swirl Borders, and I am anxious to get some use out of those very soon. But, there is more........Guess what?? On June 15th, I found out from Tara that I had won this challenge!! I was sooooo excited when I heard that. I haven't received my prize yet, but I sure can't wait to see what I won. Tara kept the prize a secret so I will have to wait for it to arrive before I can share it with you.

Well, as it is 11:52 pm and I have an early morning tomorrow, I am going to head off to dreamland for now but I have a LOT more news to share with you about My Sketch World.

I will be posting more news about the happenings at My Sketch World so be sure to keep checking in. Until we chat again.....Hugs xo
