H is for Hand stitched

 Hello folks!  Just taking a sneaky break from my revision to share this page I made for this months fun hand stitching challenge over on Scrapology.  We are scraplifting a page by the talented Delaina Burns If  you have time do pop on over to Delaina's blog... she is inspirational.
For my page I used papers from the Graphic 45 Secret Garden range.  For the hand stitching I marked out the holes with with my WRMK Sew Easy tool and stitched with blue thread.  It took a long time but I'm really pleased with the results.  I was at a fantastic retreat with some wonderful friends when I made this page and Linda showed us all how to make the flower embellishments with some punched flowers and dunking them in UTEE in the melting pot.  Great fun!  I finished off the page with some die cut leaves and swirls and a chipboard sentiment also from the Secret Garden set.
I hope you'll have a chance to join in with this months challenge.  I would love to see what you create.
Ciao for now!
Sandra xx
