She Found Joy

I'm enjoying the time to create for challenge blogs again, and it's been absolutely ages since I joined in at Kraft It Up which is a shame. But when I saw that their challenge this month is to use a kraft base and then incorporate fabric and stitching I jumped at the chance to make a page for it!


Except.......
then I realised all my fabric is packed away in storage!


So I had to go hunting through the supplies I bought with me to find something, anything made with fabric that I could incorporate to meet the criteria. And this is what I came up with: a fabric word from Prima, lace stickers from Basic Grey, fabric paper from American Crafts, and some gauze (which may or may not have come from the hospital)! Hopefully that counts for something :-)


The stitching part of it was no trouble since I sew on all my pages anyway. In fact, it was so 'normal' to me that I had to go quite overboard with my sewing to make me feel like I was challenged!


The journaling is about Moodles lack of fear to experience new things which I think is a great quality (to some extent!!) On our recent beach holiday she just loved the novelty of all the places we went and things we saw. She loved the touch of the sand beneath her feet, and dipping her toes in the water and playing among the rock pools. Pure joy for her :-)

  4. Oh wow, Nat, what a great page! I LOVE that you were so creative finding fabric in your stash - a fabric word, some lace, fabric paper even, and the gauze was my fave part! Being creative with 'found' objects is the best fun in scrapping for me. And stitching, too of course! So fun, thanks for playing along at KIU - so glad you did this page! xox
