The Twinery and My Little Shoebox

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my stop on today's blog hop with The Twinery and My Little Shoebox! You should have arrived here from Zoe's beautiful blog. If not, head back to the beginning at The Twinery's blog to get started!

MLS generously sent a selection of their latest products and I had fun deciding what I wanted to make. I was drawn to the bright colors, so I decided to do a scrapbook page about the fun we had in the sprinkler last summer when it was so, SO hot and humid. Probably had something to do with being 8 and 9 months pregnant at the time, too! ;)

I used a mix of the MLS Happy Go Lucky and Lovely Day lines and Lemon Drop twine. I love those little cloud stickers! I have never hand stitched this much on a layout, but I can see why people love it. Time consuming, yes, but very satisfying, too! I first traced 2 circles in pencil using 2 different sized plates. Then I put a squishy mousepad under my page and used my paper piercer to poke holes every 1/4 inch or so around both lines. I stitched around until I was done and my fingers were sore. If I had a hard time getting the needle through the hole, I used one of those rubber jar opener things to help pull the needle through.

So how about a prize? The Twinery is offering up FOUR SPOOLS of the winner's choice! FOUR SPOOLS!
