Challenge Friday - Stitching your title!

Happy Friday to all! Today was my turn to give a challenge over on the Burlap & Buttercups blog.....just in case you have some free time to scrap this weekend!

But first thing, I wanted to show off the BEAUTIFUL March kit!! Check out all of the sunny, warm your spirits, go outside and play elements of it!!!

And here an extra bit of goodness to add-on to your kit!!

OK, now my challenge to you is going to require you to get your needle and thread out. Don't fret though!! This was so easy!! Maybe a little time consuming but I LOVE the outcome and I think you will too! My challenge to you is to sew a word in your title. As you can see here in my layout I chose to sew the word "Smile".

The first step is to jump on your computer and find a font that you want to use and then print it out in the size you need. Lay it on your layout and start poking holes along the letters. I chose to make holes about every 1/8th of an inch to make my curves look curvy and not boxy. Then, start stitching!

After I stitched my word, I wanted to add a butterfly and thought that making it look like the butterfly had created the word would be so cute. Loved it!! Here's a close up of the finished product!!

If you do have this weekend or anytime during March, link it up over on the Burlap & Buttercups blog for a chance to win a $15 GC to the store!!

Until next time.....
