My Mind's Eye Blog Challenge

I am always excited to see the My Mind's Eye Blog challenge go up. This one is the 'Anything Goes' challenge and again has a wonderful sketch by Anam Stubbington. I really loved this sketch! It was perfect as it was, so I did not change it much at all. I used a combination of Quite Contrary and added a bit of Abbey Road, too. I love the way that MME products seem to compliment each other from release to release.

The green paper and the brads are from the Abbey Road collection. The other papers and stickers are from Quite Contrary.

Here is the sketch:


Here is my layout. This is my daughter and her close friend. They went to Mexico for vacation a couple of years ago and brought back such cute pictures.

I did a lot of stitching on this one. It takes a while, but I always end up liking it to add just a bit of extra detail. I even did a bit of stitching on one of the stickers.





Thanks for dropping by!
