SEM September sketch challenge

Maddies Blankie

This month Scrapping Everyday Miracles has brought us another lovely sketch to work with.
Our Scrap Twist this month is: Use a mixed alpha title.....

I have scrapped another photo of my beautiful niece Madeleine on the blanket that I knitted for her. I was pretty proud of myself for finishing this project, it's the first time I have attempted knitting something larger than a pair of booties and actually finishing it before the arrival of the little bubba.

For the layout I turned to my very reliable butterfly die from Cuttlebug, girly papers by Bella Blvd and some remnant felt. Hand cutting some scallops, adding machine stitching and a matching tag for my journalling completed my layout. As for a mixed alpha title, that was really easy! I keep all of my odd alphas in a little basket - you know, the ones you punch out and then don't use, or the ones that are loose in you tote or drawer, not to mention the ones you don't have enough of left to make a single word.  To ensure at least a little bit of unity I painted my chippie alphas and voila! One little layout completed.

And here's the sketch we had to work with, by the very talented Shimelle.

Make sure you drop by the SEM blog to see what everyday miracles the very talented DT have scrapped this month.

Thanks for looking xx
