Smile. - Sept Practical Scrappers Use Your Stash Blog Hop.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Friday!!! YAY for the weekend and a long weekend too.

Welcome to the Sept Practical Scrappers Use Your Stash Blog Hop... You should have arrived here from the wonderful Alison along the hop. If you got lost, you can start at Wendy's blog

I picked out my photo first, and decided to pick some papers afterwards to work with. I pulled an older Echo Park line, Sweet Girl... I actually still had the pack totally unopened (opps). So now was the time to open it up, and break it in.


I added a bit of sewing on the page, but my machine was acting super wonky, so I decided to cover most of it up.. I also added two colors of mist, the pink I sprayed and the teal, I just added splats with:


I decided to go with just a simple easy title, since I wanted to photo to speak on the page:


I also used the Stuck Sept 1 sketch for my layout to play along with.

Now hop on over to the lovely Laura and she what she has crafted this month.

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
