H2H Challenge: Just In The Stitch Of Time!

Well here it is, late Sunday evening. The boys are just getting to bed and I was ready to retire for the day.

And then I suddenly remembered I hadn't posted my challenge piece for H2H yet this week! Talk about waiting until the last minute...or hours...whatever.

I can't believe I almost let this slip by, especially since I've had it finished since last week. I'm just lucky this week's challenge involved stitching or I probably wouldn't have had anything to show. I created this layout using parts of the new Triple Play kit available through September. I saw another CTMH consultant create the same layout using the pink album pieces, but I knew the blue one would suit my subject better.

This is titled "10 Things I learned from my Mother"

Stamps: Love This (exclusive to Triple Play), Chocolate Alphabet Small
Inks: Bamboo, Indian Corn Blue, Desert Sand
Papers: Triple Play, Indian Corn Blue, Bamboo, Colonial White

I gathered some of my favorite pictures of my Mom to do this.

Notice the ribbon and buckle? It's made from photo hangers and hides a mini album of it's own.

More favorite pictures, and more life lessons from her.

I lost my Mom just a couple of months ago to Ovarian cancer, so making this was both hard and special at the same time. And anyone that knew my Mom would know I couldn't do this without stitching something somewhere on it...even if it is just a simple border.

Well it looks like I still made it before the challenge deadline. Hopefully I'll be able to get an earlier start on next week's!
