Let's get shabby - Layout Page

Click HERE to link to my GIVEAWAY post

************************************

Another layout with old photos, really really old photos.....
This one is me and my brother


This is for the challenge

challenge #17 is all about "Raiding Your Sewing Boxes"
To create a project using the item in your sewing box - at least 3 noticeable items and PIN has to be one of the item 

Now, let me count....
Button is 1 (I have two of them in this layout)
Embriodery thread is 2 
Sewing pattern paper is 3


here's the other button with a different color embriodery threads


Here comes the PINS (green/blue round headed pins), I used 3 of them, they are not the fancy handmade pins but real sewing pins from my sewing box, so they are tiny for not having those fancier beads on top,  they are the 4th item from the sewing box

Lace is number 5
See that green color thread, those are the tiny ones in a traveling case I bought while I was in Aspen few years ago, my daughter was there for the Music Festival all summer, 9 weeks without any crafting, I went to Walmart and bought a tiny traveling box filled with threads and needles, and did some hand-sewn items while waiting for my daughter at the music studio, that is item number 6 from my sewing box.


Item # 7 from my sewing box is this little fabric button, the fabric was just a tiny piece of left-over from the patch work

Some more of the sewing pattern paper, I used it to make these flowers


Still trying to practice more on these hand rolled flowers, just love them....


See my new Martha Stewart edge punch, one more to my collection


The kraft journaling spot from HERE!


Ok, I've counted, I used 7 items from my sewing box, just in case you wonder why I did not count that measuring tape (on the bottom right corner) as one, right, that is faux, it is not a real measuring tape but stamped on ribbon.

I just love challenge like this one where I can challenged myself to see how many items from my sewing box I can incorporate into my project, really cool!

Now it is your turn to hop over and play along, the DT's work are really amazing, I love every single one of them, so wait no more, hop over to see it for yourself
