I'll admit that the hand stitching I did on this page almost maimed me.

While my baby bro was visiting us in Austin at the beginning of the year, the three of us took a walk through our neighborhood and shot photos along the way. I really love this one of my two favorite guys in the whole world. And that’s it: I love the photo and I love them. And that’s more than a good enough reason to do a scrapbook page!

Product/technique notes

Even though this is a simple design, quite a lot of technique went into completing it. I created the sunburst shapes and cut them with the Silhouette. Then I hand stitched around all the edges (I asked my husband to remind me of the great pain this caused me if he ever hears me mention planning to do it again) with gray embroidery floss. And then I cut the 2 and the cloud, again on the Silhouette Cameo. The background pattern is an ancient (read 2007 or so) Cloud 9 design; the rest of the patterns are from a Crate Paper “Story Teller” 6×6 pad; and the 3×4 card is from Teresa Collins’ “Family Stories.”

I’m entering this page into the Paper Issues “Color by the numbers” link party.

Argh – I hate auto-correct!! That should be ‘sunburst’, not ‘sunburnt’!
