One more...

Happy Friday! Whoo, it seems like it's been Friday for days. Wednesday seemed like Friday, Thursday seemed like Friday, and finally! It's now Friday!! I got in some scrappy time last night since I packed all of my "to do" stuff into Wednesday. And I have my speech written! Yay! I like how it turned out. I hope everyone else likes it too! Six days and counting...

I dug out my Maggie Holmes collection for this page. I haven't used it in a bit, and I thought it'd go well with my picture I chose to use. Two great reasons in one, right? I used a Paper Bakery Kit Sketch for this layout. The only thing I really "changed" is I used hand stitched chevrons instead of arrows. I like the subtle touch it gives my overall layout. I think if I would have used arrows, it would have drawn away from the overall design. The stitched chevrons were made with the Amy Tangerine hand stitching templates from Amy's Yes, Please collection. I love them but I have to sych myself up to use them because hand stitching is so time consuming... I always love the texture it gives though. Maybe I should try adding it more often!

Great take on the sketch! I am so glad you used the chevron template- I have it and I haven't used it yet! Your layout has inspired me to bust out that template and use it soon! Thanks for playing along with The Paper Bakery!

Gorgeous layout Heather! I love the arrows and I love the hand stitching. I do it on my layouts too even though it is time consuming.
