Best Creations Blog Hop!

Today is the start of our Best Creation Inc. Blog Hop! All the blogs you will be visiting today incorporate thread in their projects! Your job? Find the secret FALL words! Once you have the FALL words, email them to mel@bestcreation.us for a chance to win our new 12x12 Hello Fall collection kit! I LOVE this kit... the colours are perfect and so are all the embellies! Here is a picture:


You should be arriving from the Best Creation Inc. Blog! Today I am going to share you a layout I did of my son's first day at school year! The school line had the perfect colors and embellies to make my little man really shine! Here is my layout:

Here are some close ups:

I used bazzill Alphabet templates to sew the word Jitters on! I thought the hand sewing would give it a "jittery" look! If you don't have the templates, you can just print your own letters in pencil and then use a paper piercer to create holes and then sew away! I also added some cross stitching (3 stitches on three sides) for some added detail!


I absolutely LOVE the metal and chipboard embellishments! Here is another close up of them:


Okay, that's it for me, so off you hop to the super talented: Rebecca. Good luck everyone!

Also for added bonus... if you become a follower (or already are) on my blog and leave a comment I will be picking a winner of a 6 X 6 paper pad kid of Safari Girl!



Extra Good Luck to Everyone!

Your hand stitching really gives the page an added dimension. I love how you stitched a jittery title to emphasize the theme.
