so first here is my LO for MDC
we were using julie bonner(52 weeks....52 sketches) sketch
here is my LO:
i used prima's space boy collection
i did handstitching and handcutting of alot of things!
also those black marks on the bottom are not suppose to be there, my son decided he was going to write on my LO when i wasnt looking-bad boy! so i had to cover them up!

you can play along with us on the MDC blog using julie's current weekly sketch
MDC challenge blog

its already sketch 4
here is the awesome sketch liz provided us
and here is my take on the sketch:
i used BG paper, handstitching and handcutting also homemade flowers

you can also play along with us, liz is giving away and awesome prize:
There's another way you can win a Pink Paislee "Spring Fling" kit. All you have to do is complete a layout from one of the previous sketches posted here on the blog. You can either email it to me or add a comment to this post with a link to where we can see it. Be sure to tell us which sketch you used.
