As requested................

The second page is  following on, I haven't put anything extra onto the patterned paper yet I need to think about what to add.

oop s abit blurry but basically it's my dad with his fave traction engines. We used to go rallys when we were little.
This LO is is another scraplifted, and is all about me. It's called ''I am'' and is different aspects of who I am.......

This is a full size image of the LO, You begin with 12 x 12 card stock and then I chose a shaped paper by Jenni Bowlin. I then found a coordinating patterned paper in pinkish dots, That is cut into a circle and distressed and inked with Fired Brick distress ink. Beneath this layer is a square of white cardstock which I inked with Distress inks as well. Once all the pieces are ready you need to draw lines from the centre ouitwards to make all the lines. The main crossings I used ribbon for but in the design the lady had used patterned papers. I have then followed her idea of stitching with running stitch. My fingers got sore so it's not quite finished.

Here is another closeup...............

Finally, this is the full picture so far of the heart shaped button embellishment.

I really loved this idea as  I have a plethora of buttons and could use at least some of them up. It is also a g8 design for my sister and her beloved!!! I have actually added the final embellishments since photographing this so will put it up at a later date. This one is for my mum's birthday album.

Hope this makes you all abit happier now you have seen the full sized images.
