What a Cutie Pie - Sketch N Scrap - My Minds Eye (The Sweetest Thing)

Oops!  I am a day late in posting my Sketch N Scrap layout.  Please go and visit the blog to see what beautiful work was done by the DT.  Here is my take on the sketch:
Supplies used:  Cardstock:  Bazzill; Patterned paper: My Minds Eye (The Sweetest Thing Lavender); All Embellishments: My Minds Eye (The Sweetest Thing Lavender); Cutting file: Silhouette.
 I have said it so many times that you must be sick of it.  I adore My Minds Eye.  I love how everything coordinate and look beautiful together.
...I am also loving my Silhouette Cameo.  The best gift my DH ever bought me.  I love how neatly it cuts and how easy and user friendly the software is.
I surprised myself at what a delight it is for me to hand sew on my layouts.  I love that everything is still relatively flat and yet the stitching brings so much texture and just finishes off the layout perfectly.

Here is the sketch by Lisa Hidy:

Today I received some "happy mail".  Three parcels came from the US with gorgeous papers and embellishments.  

One of the parcels are my Studio Callico December kit.  I love it that the kit will not tie me down to only Christmas themed layouts.  I believe my scrapping style have evolved over the past year and that I now prefer creating "flatter" layouts that don't add bulk to my albums.
