Stuck?! Sketches challenge from Oct 1, 2015

Another day, another challenge...I've come to realize I really enjoy these sketch challenges, they are so much fun!

Here's the sketch from this latest Stuck?! Sketches challenge:

I wasn't sure what photos I should scrap or what paper to use, I only knew I wanted to use a cut file that came with the Let's Cut Class 01 @TheCutShoppe. I had to alter it to fit my needs, but I like to customize things when I can! 

In the end I chose papers from the We R Memory Keepers Hello Darling and the My Mind's Eye Jubilee Sherbet collections. I've lost count how many times I've used these papers to back up paper cut outs! I love the colors, especially the lime!

I printed some random old photos yesterday that I love and I went with one where my boys were just being silly and were pretending to be samurais. I don't actually remember why! My son would have been a really cute little girl too, don't you think? :) God I miss him being so little!

I did some messy machine stitching on the layout, I really like how those turned out. Added the title, some wood veneer stars, enamel dots, ink splatters and I think that about wraps it up! Looks simple enough but it did take me 4 hours to make this LO due to all the backing. But then again, I enjoy busy work :). 

So here's the final LO and some close-ups. Hope you like X
