My return with a Stuck?! Sketches challenge

So let's just acknowledge my absence here and move on!!

I have been doing a little scrapbooking and no blog posting.

I've done lots of painting and collage along with the little scrapbooking. 
My return post needed to have a page that included a few of my favourite things. 

I've played along with the Stuck?! Sketches challenge this month and boy, did I love my return to paper land. I had a ball.

And here is my layout. Lots of flowers, pretty bibs and bobs and some hand stitching.
My papers included Pink Fresh Studio, Simple Stories and Pink Paislee. 

I did a lot of fussy cutting - florals and butterflies.
The butterflies were fussy cut from Crate Paper patterned paper.

Some wood veneer to had a little more interest. The title is a Kaisercraft die cut.

And I couldn't leave it without some hand stitching. I just love the texture and interest that hand stitching adds to a layout. 

Thank you for checking out the blog. And yes, I will back with more frequent layouts from here on!
