NEW Challenge Entries
I am finally able to upload the photos of the Photo Album I made for my Niece and her new husband as a wedding gift. This was my first attempt at Crazy Quilting and it is all done by hand, not machine like I first thought would be my option of choice. After talking with other Crazy Quilters most expressed the use of hand stitching instead of machine stitching so although my time was short I thought I would go for it. Needless to say I took it apart in the last three days and decided that I needed to redo part of it. LOL.....Although I must say I am happy with the final project both the scrapping and the quilting
Well the challenge I tackeled was with one of my groups and although a simple idea, I had to think about it. The Hostess asked that we make a layout using Pink, Green, and Yellow Papers plus a Flower in some manner. I have to admit, I had to think, plus we only had three days to do it in and I was working all weekend. I did get it done and I thought, what better way to showcase some of the pictures from the Scrapping Retreat that I went on with this same group of girls. There will be a vote on the layouts, and I think the winning layout goes on the home page, and although you don't see my journaling in this photo I have gone in and done so and the journaling reads: March 2009 - A Time of building new friendships at our first Scrapbooking Retreat. We met ten lovely ladies at the Cabin and this is what we called the North Carolina Girls: Heather, Cyndi, Kandi and Doris. Lasting relationships for years to come.
