The first photo I am entering in the Let's Scrap Challenge #178. The rules are to use one of their sketches, I chose Sketch 3-2-11; include one of their techniques, I added mosaic tiles (#49) to the layout; scrap a family event or tradition, the annual family photo; and to include actual sewing on the layout, one of the layers is sewn in place.
Here's the original sketch:
I used the left side sketch for mine:
I love this paper pack! I bought it for 60% off at Michaels. It's called Homemade Holidays by Simple Stories. I learned how to do the multi-loop bows on the Weekly Scrapper emails that I get from the Scrapbook Expo website (LOVE). The green label on the left side is cut with my cricut Art Philosophy and CTMH label stamp. I had the pine needle border strip from an old swap that I was in. The heart and white/red polka dot paper were scraps. Everything else is from the pad. I used five different patterned papers on this layout!
This second layout is from the My Creative Sketches challenge blog. The original sketch:
