Multnomah Falls, OR

I absolutely love this LO! Tooting my own horn. I think I am getting pretty good at this stuff. LOL! JK! I think I have lost my mind!

I used bazzill cardstock as the background. I made a patchwork quilt look by using 2x2 pieces of paper (don't know the brand- sorry was in a kit). Then I triple matted the pictures, Added the fibers, flowers, and chipboard elements. Took black stickles to make the stitches. Then took yellow and icicles stickles to accent the chipboard. I used a silver gel pen to write around the quilt part. And that's all she, I mean I, wrote. LOL

Hope you like and TFL!
