Hello crafty friends!! I hope you’re having a great day so far! I am excited to share this layout with me. It is dear to my heart…. we had to put down our black lab, Sirius, in March of 2015. It was a REALLY hard decision to make and follow through with, but it was for the best.
Anyway, I found a layout on Pinterest that I really liked and thought it would be fun to add some stitching to it.
I really loved how simple this layout is! I changed it up a little bit to work for me and this is the layout I came up with:
This photo was taken back in August of 2014. My middle son had just been baptized and we were outside taking pictures. He really wanted to take some photos of me so I let him. My dog, Sirius, wanted to be in them too. I’m so glad I got these photos. We had to put Sirius down in March 2015, unfortunately, and I really cherish these photos now!!
I really love the texture that the stitching adds to this layout. It was a little hard to maneuver the 12×12 page around my sewing machine, but I got it done and really love the result. I used the January Clique Kits kit called Alegria and I really love all the extra bits that came along with it. the hello wood veneer came in the kit and fit perfectly with this layout. I used the big red Alpha that came in the kit as well and decided to do my stitching over top of it. I love the look it gives.
Here’s a close up of the banners at the top of the layout. I used some blue and yellow sequins in each one of the banners.
