The One and Only You ~ Trendy Technique ~ Practical Scrappers

Hi everyone!  Today I have a layout to share with you that I did for the Trendy Technique challenge that we are having over at Practical Scrappers.  The Trendy Technique that I'm talking about is sewing.   I see more and more people using this technique on their layouts, and in so many creative ways...   Now, I may not be real creative, but I do occasionally love to sew around the outside edges and around the different layers on my layout..  I used the regular straight stitch and the zig-zag stitch and just kinda free handed it.. I think it goes with the grunge look of my layout very well...
I also used the sketch from Stuck On U Sketches, which was designed by Nanne..

Boy, did I dig into my archives for this picture..  This is little GD Savannah back in 2007 and she is re-potting my ficus tree one little handful at a time!! :o)   And I wonder why that tree didn't make it!! LOL  Oh well, if it wasn't Savannah, it would have been Colten or Zach...

Here are a few close ups..

Here you can see my Distressed Edges/Sewing, Prima Say It In Crystals,  Prima Brick Mask, and The Paper Studio Sticker Butterfly..

Hi Fern! Love this layout!!! I have to know, do you create such wonderfully distressed edges? I can't seem to get mine to look like that no matter what I try. What is your method?
