Kraft It Up September Challenge "Cherish"

Hi everyone. This is the layout I have done for the September challenge over at the Kraft It Up blog. This months criteria was to use fabric & sewing. After much thought, this is what I came up with. 

I have used little squares of white fabric, with bits of lace on top & then I have zig zagged over the top of them with my sewing machine & then  I stitched around each square individually. Next I sewed all around the edges of my page.
 I have also used some really cute little "Sewing Machine & Thimble" metal embellies I had in my stash just waiting for the right page & I thought this was it. I also had a fabric tag from an old "Singer" sewing machine. I think my Mum had it in her sewing box for years, so I popped that into my cluster as well.

 Lastly I have used some printed tissue for the frill & some Kraft words from "Collections", chippie word & heart, Prima & Green Tara flowers, K & Co die cuts, threw in some more lace & twine, & hey presto, all finished. I hope you like it. Until next time.
  Cheers Di  xx
