Scrap-it-Lah August Challenge

We have another unique challenge lined up for you at the Scrap-It-Lah this month. We kick off the Guest Designer series this month and we have invited Irene Tan aka Scrapperlicious as our Guest Designer and she has come up with a cool challenge for us. For more information, go do head off to the Scrap-it-Lah blog.

Irene's challenge was to include some sewing in the layout.  I have done that with my flourishes.
I have also tried out a tutorial that I saw online making flowers from punched scalloped paper. I must say that I love these flowers that I have here now.  

This is a very old photo of Clarissa when she was 2.  As you can see - barely had hair and loved to strut her stuff and wear boots.  Sigh... Such memories....

Materials used:
Coredinations pp,  Far East pp,  Distress Ink - Spiced Marmalade,  Ribbons and trims from local haberdashery,  Technique Tuesday chipboard frames,  Embossing Pad,  UTEE Embossing Powder,  DMC Embriodery thread,  MM Sticker alphas,  Heidi Swapp Sticker,  Thickers foam alphas,  plastic leaves from my Scarlet Lime kit and 3d foam dots.
