SYS Challenge #8~ Stitching!

Happy Friday gang!!! It's that time again for another challenge over at Scrap Your Story.  If you haven't checked them out yet, please do so!  It's a wonderful challenge blog with weekly challenges and monthly prizes!!! Stop in and say hello :-)

This week's challenge is to incorporate stitching somewhere on your project.  Hand, machine, faux, or otherwise.  Since I'm not big on any type of "sewing" I decided on some faux stitching for this page.  This is my sister's LAST PAGE in her Senior Year Album and she's totally stoked to FINALLY be getting it!!! Although I would like to make a cover for it first :-)

Any who, here is what I've come up with.  I also combined this with the Guest Designer challenge over at Colorful Creations using the following sketch by Tabitha Triplett (one of my FAV sketch designers!!!!):

I flipped the page a quarter turn clockwise to accomodate my photos.  

Doesn't it just scream "my teenage years"!!!!!  Hahahaha!!! 
I started by using papers by DCWV "Glam Gal" paper stack.  The blue paper is from an old paper stack (can't remember by whom) and already had the polaroids on it.  I simply cut out the paper inside them and added photos!!! I included some banners (of course!) I cut out from coordinating papers, rub-ons by Scenic Route, and various pearls and bling!!!  I used a purple Souffle pen to create the stitched look around the blue paper.  Hope you enjoy :-)

Well my friends, thanks for stopping in and have a LUCKY day!!!
