MME April sketch - Snake Eyed

Hi there! Just popping in quickly today to share a page I created for the April layout sketch challenge at the My Mind's Eye blog. It's my first time particpating! Here is the sketch:

And the layout I created with it using some Stella Rose papers and stamps, an Alphabet Soup card, as well as some ribbon packaging, twine and a button.

The theme using this page was "April Showers" and even though it's not obvious from the subject, I tried to incorporate the shower part with cascading paper banners and a stream of hand stitching. The page is about my step-son's first gun, a BB, and him and his dad testing it out. Of course he's not quite big enough to use it yet but it was still a fun, manly bonding experience for them both.

By the way, who needs a Sew Easy tool to get straight stitch lines when you can just run the paper through your unthreaded sewing machine?! A big DUH moment for me.

Hope this week has been a great one for you, despite the icky weather. xo
