Now for the project I created using this weeks sketch. We have been doing a lot of cards a PCS lately and I am more of a layout girl, so I took this weeks sketch and made a 12X12 Layout. I pulled my inspiration from the layers and tags in the sketch.

I brought out the trusty sewing machine to stitch around the edges. I used some recollections brads to dress up the tags and added a doily for interest. The title is adhesive backed chipboard by K&Company.

I distressed the edges using my fingernail! I used one of the sentiments from the Bedtime Story stamp set by My Favorite Things. It has special meaning as that is what my girls and my mom say to one another.

I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I did making it! For a full list of supplies, please see below.
I look forward to seeing you projects for this challenge and I hope to see you on the PCS Message Boards!
