KRAFT+ DECEMBER - Needles and Pins...

Well Hello December, and Hello Summer for us.. although I think Summer has been trying us out already with the heat, and some parts of Queensland are battling extreme fires this week.. I pray for rain and an easing of this very difficult situation....

However, I am here to share my layout for the new challenge over at
KRAFT + for December and what a fabulous challenge again this month.. and it is...

Needles and Pins!! What do you think of when you hear that.. there is some wonderful and varied inspiration over on the KRAFT+ BLOG HERE  ..

I was inspired to do some stitching, both by hand and also with my machine, and I also used a stamp that has stitching and I found a couple of decorative pins that I have popped on my page as well...

some closer views..

This shows the hand stitching under the photo and on the bunting..

And on this picture you can see one of the stitched stamp I have used as well as cotton thread messily placed on my layout..

And there are the decorative pins in my flower cluster... and I think they were a giveaway from the very talented RACHAEL FUNNELL quite a few years ago now!!!

and my layout,.

SO very Blessed..

Oh and there is also a bit of paper tape measure too on my page.. lots of layers and fussy cutting for this very special page of my Daughter and Partner and my Darling Granddaughter.... and they have just announced their Engagement.. so that is wonderful news..  so something else to look forward to!!

I cant believe it is December..  hummm.. well yes I can when I stop and think about it... the shops are full of festive stuff, there is Christmas music playing in the malls and yes I saw the big fellow in red last week already... so I guess I can believe it is December... I just don't know how we got here so soon!!! hehe..

Thanks so much for dropping on by, I know things are gunna get real busy so I do appreciate you taking the time, and a big thanks for the lovely comments too..
take care now...  and remember the reason for the season..

  3. This is fabulous Lizzy!! Love all the stitching you added and the colours are gorgeous!! You are so clever at mixing fussy cut and paper flowers .. something I can never get right!! Love the photo of your daughter's family .. so precious, and congratulations on their engagement too!! I don't know how we got to
    December so quickly either!! It always seems to sneak up on me. Think I have plenty of time and then .. wham!! .. it's staring me in the face!! I love the quote you have at the bottom of your page and, I hope you don't mind, but I have taken a copy of it so I can pop it on my sidebar. Praying for everyone affected by the fires in Queensland. Hope it is easing off now.
    Enjoy the little that's left of the weekend Lizzy!! hugs xx

  4. AMAZING page....gorgeous photo, and even more gorgeously scrapped! Love the stitched stamping and go you, doing hand stitching as well. Crazy girl! CONGRATS on them announcing their engagement....seems like my boy & his lot....doing everything 'arse end up' as my Dad would say if he was alive....but hey! Long as they're in a loving, committed partnership has always been my mantra! And both your lot and mine have that. Praise God!!!
