I wanted to title this post 'The day I decided to machine stitch everything in sight' but decided to go with 'You' instead. LOL.

Confession : I'm not very friendly with my sewing machine. That's actually an understatement. So please excuse me while I celebrate this layout where I managed to use my sewing machine and live to actually type up this post! :D

Is it possible to fall in love with a patterned paper? Because I think I'm smitten, hopelessly head over heels with that Tree Top pp from our Good Tidings collection. I vote for this piece to be around forever and ever, make it permanent! I mean, just look at the gold foil polka dots - they're absolutely useable and versatile all year long! Are you with me? 

Hooray for weekends! Don't you feel that way when Friday come rolling around? :D I wish Friday comes more than once a week. Haha. I layered a file tab and a file card and stitch them all together to create this cluster. 

I punched some circles out of a card from the School House cards set and used them through out my layout. I really love the map print but wanted it in smaller doses than 3x4 so this works! I cut some stars out from the Good Tidings rub-ons sheet, rearranged them to my liking and added some wood veneer stars from my stash, just because I love the way they look! :D

I'll be back with a Sketch Challenge this coming Sunday! 
I'll see you soon!
