Weaver of Your Dreams

Good morning

Today I am showcasing another of Kristal's stamps over at Getting Cricky.  As you know I am also in a Layout challenge over at Paper Secrets and am loving that I am actually doing more and more layouts. Each week we are given an assignment for a layout. I really don't care if I win the contest, it's just helping me to do more layouts that I should have done a long time ago (or some new ones in this case). If you participate and follow the guidelines you advance to the next week. We started with 27 and 20 again moved onto this week. I will keep updating you as I go along. Who knows, I might not be able to participate one week and then I am out, but until then, I am scrapping my butt off, (they used a different word, but my blog is family friendly...hehehe
This week's sketch is this:

Again, I did rotate it, but it worked perfectly for this picture. 
These were the items we were suppose to use and the ones in red is what I used.

hand (faux) or machine stitiching
3+ photo corners
3+ tags
altered or raw chipboard

I used my SCAL program to make the title too.  I love how I can shadow any font I wish. 

Now as you know I am also a designer over at Getting Cricky as she came out with some fabulous stamps (if you didn't already know that, hehehe).  I even used a stamp on this layout.  That's what I love about these stamps, they are so versatile and user friendly.  I stamped the sentiment "You are the Weaver of your own Dreams" from the Postive Thoughts stamp set directly on the flower.  I arched the stamp a bit to fit perfectly into the flower.  AWESOME!!!

Now remember when you purchase this stamp set, Kristal is donating $1 from per set to benefits Storefront Shelter (Homeless shelter for children and youth).  What a fabulous cause.  This is not a one time deal...she will donate each and everytime you order a set.

I will be showcasing another stamp tomorrow, so be sure to come back and check it out and place your order today.  Today is the last day of preordering...don't forget.

Then don't forget there will be the U-Stream on Friday night and blog hop for Getting Cricky's launch of her Stamp line and Design Team and there just might be some blog candy too...
