I Got the Blues...

OK...Here's my LO for the Blues challenge on Sneaky. This was my first time doing machine stitching on a LO. I tried using this little Provo Craft sewing machine that Lal gave me, but it did NOT work:( I was just being lazy and didn't want to pull out my big machine, but I really should have instead of wasting so much time trying to get the little one to work. Once I got my big machine out, I finished in like two it is:

Our challenge was to use four different BLUE patterned papers by four different manufacturers. I used Basic Grey Periphery, MME Wild Asparagus, K&Co. Wild Saffron and Daisy D's. We also had to use embellishments to spell out the word "blues" and they could only be black, white, silver, gold or blue. I used a bloom, borders and a button, lace, undressed chipboard, epoxy alpha stickers and stickers and stitching. I really like how the butterfly and bloom look even though it's a boy LO. I'm really surprised at how much I like the way this came out:) And I'm really liking the look of the machine stitching. I'm pretty sure I'll be doing this again on other LOs:)

Today I spent the day with my mom. We did a little shopping. I went by M's, but didn't find the things I was looking for:( I picked up a little birthday gift for a Sneaky pal though. Went to the mall and bought the cutest little purse at Aeropostale and a new t. I LOVE that store. Me and my mom ate Chick fil A at the food court. Went to Hobby Lobby and picked up another birthday gift for another Sneaky pal. Went to Target, then Walmart, then picked up the kids and dropped my mom back off at home. It was a good day:)
