So here is the sketch from Sketch 'N' Scrap . . .
. . . and here is my take on the above sketch!
As usual I did alter the sketch a little to fit with the size and type of photo I had, but I decided to stick pretty close to home for the rest of it. Even though this is a autumn layout I didn't use any fall themed paper or embellishments at all. I loved the bright colours of the new washi tape I had just purchased, and how they made the black and white photo pop even more. The stitching was done by hand, which is tedious I know, but my sewing machine hasn't worked in close to 10 years, and I don't think I'll be purchasing a new one for awhile!
