Good a.m.

Well it's actually 5:40 p.m right now so it's not a.m. anymore. But good a.m. (short cut for good morning) is the title of my new LO for Marcie. Hehe. My first LO for September too. (Finally got my mojo back) I love how she looks in this picture. Her innocence shines through & I love how her hair is all spiky (she just woke up that's why...).

Materials used: Green PP & Die cuts from Katlin Collection (Crate Paper), Rosebud ink (Color Box) , purple cardstock (The Paper company) for the alphas which I cut from my Xyron Wishblade, White & Black thread (DMC)

For the black frame, I did a little sewing. I used white thread at first but it didn't seem visible so I added the black thread later on. The picture is a 4r picture which I cut into 6 equal pieces to make it look somewhat like a puzzle. I then added a mat for the picture. I also dabbed some pink ink (Color Box Rosebud stamp pad) on the green patterned paper to add more emphasis to the photo. This was inspired from the Scrap Jack Challenge.

Journaling: Rise & shine my little sunshine! I love your early morning look. =)

When you look at it for the first time, it's deceiving 'coz it looks like you made & finished it in 10 secs. However, if you look closely, you see all the details, stitched frame, quilted photo, die-cutting alphabet & inking. Overall turned out very nice!

Thank you Michelle. I wanted it too look simple & you're right, if you view closer that's where you'll see all the little details that required a few hours of work time. But it was all worth it. =)
