A Very Proud Day

At his end of year prizegiving my son adam received two prizes. He got the trophy for excellence in acting (he played Nathan Detroit in the school's production of Guys and Dolls) and he received a major award for all round excellence and participation in school life. Ofcourse it was a very
proud day for his mum and dad!!!
I wanted my LO to be masculine so I used a very grungy style with lots of ink and paint smears. The challenge over at Scrap-it-Lah http://scrap-it-lah.blogspot.com/ this week is from a cyber friend of mine Eila Sandburg. Her challenge is  to use old book paper, sheet music or something similar,  fussy-cutting and hand-stitching using embroidery floss. My papers are a mix of Kaisercraft and Bo-Bunny. I handstiched the cross-stiches along the upper and lower border - I use a lot of stitching on my pages but almost always machine stitching so I had fun doing this. If you want a challenge have a go at this one yourself. There are cool prizes up for grabs!
