I'm in stitches over the Dotty for You papers!

As I thought of ways to use the Dotty for You papers, I realized they would be perfect for some of my daughter's engagement pictures. Kristin and Mike have so much fun together that the fun, whimsical paper suited them and the pictures! When I saw that the Heart 2 Heart challenge this week is stitching, I was all set!

The layout is from Magic (Enchantment) and uses four 4 x 6 photos. I used my wonderful CTMH ruler and piercing tool to make the even holes to stitch with Smoothie Baker's Twine. The ruffle was made by pulling the stitching along one side of the Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. So sweet - just like the kids!

Items used:
Paper: Dotty for You, Gray Wool and Colonial White cardstock
Embellishments: Just Blooms Paper Shapes: Paradise and Petals, Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Smoothie Mini Medley, Baker's Twine - Paradise, Felt Alphabet - Keepsake
Other: Ruler, piercing tool, Magic
