Crafty Ann's #64 Stitching

It's time for another challenge at Crafty Ann's and this time we'd like to see stitching - real or faux on your projects.


I've opted to show another layout I've made using a photo of my great grandfather. The blue papers and the steampunk elements came from Ann's Rhapsody in Blue Kit and the frames and labels from the Sweet Sage kit, both kits are available from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop. My LO is 12 x 12 and was made in My Memories Suite. The main BP and newsprint BP are from a kit called Vintage Chic. I've used sketch #38 at Frosted Designs as inspiration for the layout.

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see Ann and the teams creations, you won't be disappointed.

Challenges entered:
Scrapfit - good ole boys
The Studio Challenges - layout using a song title (Grandad)
Top Tip Tuesday - anything but a card
Polka Doodle - shabby chic/vintage
Glitter Geeks - stitches
Our Craft Lounge - vintage
