A few weeks ago my daughter had a cultural festival at her school. I had promised her that I would make a traditional dutch outfit for her. Well, I had ordered the fabric a while back, but my big pregnant belly had made it too hard to cut and reach my sewing machine, so I had to wait till after Benji was born. That only gave me two sleep deprived weeks to make it. I managed to get it finished just in time and it turned out way better than I expected. I know that pumpkins in the photo are a bit deceiving as to when I took the photo, but I really just haven't gotten around to getting rid of them yet. lol. And just in case anyone is wondering where I got my fabric and pattern (for once I actually didn't just wing it and used a real pattern for the first time) I got it at fields fabrics. They shipped really fast and I'll probably be making ones for my little dudes soon.
I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash . I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two. The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another) I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering. I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.
