Once Upon A Sketch

I am really really enjoying having the free time to participate in scrappy challenges lately! One of my FAVS is the bi weekly sketch challenges over at
Nadia's sketches are always so beautiful and so wonderful to work with, I have some very pretty pages that I can credit to her sketches!

This week's challenge called for us to journal about the men in our lives that we love, so I decided to do a page about my 3 favorite boys in the whole wide world! My Husband and 2 Sons!

These are my guys! My Lil Country Bumpkins! I love em so so much!

I used Glitz Design's Vintage Blue for this page with some Colorbok scrap pieces for the accent papers.
The doily is an old crochet'd one I found some place or another a while back, lol. This is one of the first pages I've done in a while that I didn't distress, I thought it might take away from the double stitching I did around the edges.

I used a Bazzil Stitch Template to create the fancy stitch work, then I added the rest of the box by drawing my own template on the back side using a ruler to close the design in.

The twine flower is handmade and I've had a few people ask about it. If you guys are interested let me know and I will try to post a tutorial soon on how to make these, they really are super simple.

My title!!

Hope you guys enjoyed it, thanks for stopping by and taking a looksie, sorry it's so short, but my to do list is mounting as we speak, lol!!
