This layout is 100% entirely from my Daydream Believer Studio Calico kit. I ordered pretty much everything with this kit came out and I am really trying to work through it and get it all used!! I have a pretty big project planned for early August using this kit and hoping to get it killed or get to a point where I can call it done (and break it up into my regular stash). Anyway, back to the layout. It's based on this Studio Calico Sunday Sketch (from 7/1) and I was hoping to have it done in time to get posted and entered for the challenge, but that just didn't happen.

This photo is a selfie from St. Patty's Day this year. I stitched the circles down and lifted them up around the stitch for some added dimension (totally Amy Tan inspired too). I kept the stitch going to form a box around the photo, and it also served to stitch the letters of the title down (again...totally Amy Tan inspired). The banners to the left of the photo are all cut from scraps. I added some white paint splatters to keep the eye moving. Love this sketch and I am really loving the way this layout turned out. It's making me quite happy!!

Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful LO :) Love how you have used the scraps

  2. I like everything about this layout. I might just have to go pin that sketch. The stitching really finishes it off.
