So it's the 28th & that means Everything Scrapp'n Design Team Blog Hop & monthly challenge. Michelle challenged us to use a holiday themed paper in an everyday way. The design team will be showing off Pink Paislee Cupid.
"Scrappy Day" is my take on the challenge. (I know I told you I was finished with CHA summer photos but I lied lol since most of the photos have been packed for a couple weeks pickings were slim lol). It was fun meeting online friends & spending the day (and night) shopping & cropping. You recognize last months guest designer Tracy (traychic) along with another friend from Paperclipping Iraida.
I got crazed with the hand stitching & making french knots in the center of the lace trim
Fussy cutting the paper to make flowers is inexpensive but doesn't lack style if you layer with gems, other pieces of paper & turn up the edges a bit.... I used similar color thread & one of the decorative stitches on my machine to add depth & texture to the paper.
Layers separated by pop dots

Nothing says classy like Maya Road pins, velvet trim & some pearls
