You Know You Twist So Fine

Busy day
Elizabeth had her “Ear Doctor'” appointment
Seems the 2nd grommet is out of the eardrum but both ears were looking good
As were her throat and nose
So we don’t go back for another 4 months, hallelujah :)
Lucy and I ran lots of errands but while we were home, which was in spits and spats,
I created this double 8.5x11 layout


based on this Pagemaps sketch, at Aussie Scrap Source,


I used some October Afternoon, Crate, The Girls Paperie and American Crafts products
The journaling, which is over 2 spots



Some machine stitching and ruffled sewing pattern paper


I used a Lindt chocolate wrapper to create the skirt on the dress form
Also a Heidi Swapp jewel and some doodling to make the necklace


and ohhhh how I love London’s chipboard buttons


This one is in the Christmas pack, love… LOVE LOTS Smile


Pin It Now!


  1. OH I love this did an awesome job!!!!


  2. what a good job you did. Love the simplicity of it. Just a quick question..i notice you use machine stitching on your layouts. I do too, and I am just experimenting with different threads and needles. At the moment I'm using topstitch thread and just bought some topstitch needles as the others kept on breaking. What do you use thats durable and that sews through thick letters. You can email me on Thanks!

  3. You are totally AMAZING!! WOW WOW WOW!!! I loveeeeeeeeeee that lo! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  4. so glad Elizabeth's ears are looking well. Sharmaine I love this layout and all the ones I have missed due to busyness that is getting in the way of my favorite blogger!

    The girls all looked so pretty for the wedding - I was blown away by how grown up Meghan looks!

  5. Love the dress on the dress form. Good use for a candy wrapper.
