Webster's and Pagemaps page

Did I tell you that I was featured at Webster's Pages Ning community as the banner of the week last week? Well I was beyond excited about it! I just had a crazy busy and exciting week last week.

this was the page that was featured. This is also for the pagemaps sketch contest. Which is being sponsored by our very own A Cherry On Top!

Here is a trick for the pink trim. It is a double sided ruffle - meaning that the way it starts out is about an inch and a half wide with the ruffle on both sides with some stitching down the middle. I found it to be too wide for what I wanted here, (and I wanted to make it last a little longer) so I used my sewing machine to sew another line of stitching parallel to the first. Then I was able to cut between the two lines of stitching and get two strips of half ruffle.

and one more trick, I used good old fashioned pencils on the corners of this page. I shaded them then smudged them to look like a vignette. I did that on most of the patterned papers too.
