Embellish it Week 3 - Stitch it.

Wow week 3 already!! This comp is going really fast and the entries this week are all just amazing!! I just love seeing how every one interprets the challenge. Its just amazing how different everyone's LO's are.
Weeks 3 Challenge was to incorporate these 5 things in your LO...Hand stitching, felt, beads, bling/rhinestones and doodling. We were also asked to create our own embellishment using some of these things from the list or all of the above.
So pretty good criteria..and I just lovvvee hand stitching!! My inspiration for this weeks challenge was my daughters clothes she wore in the photo..
These are just my favourite clothes atm of hers...beautiful colours and so much detail.
Ok so from this I created this LO...Hope you like...
Below I recreated the Felt flower from her Jumper...Also you should be able to see the beads I hand sewed on as well and more stitching tehehe.
Next is a close up of the butterfly I recreated from Savannah's Jeans.. this embellishment took me the longest to do..but so worth it...
More Close ups...
Lastly the journalling...This in particular means alot to me as its written from her daddy for her...Jamie asked me a couple of weeks ago "how come I only ever do layouts from my perspective and not his...lol so here it is baby I hope you love it as much as I do. BTW how beautiful are his words for his little girl :D Makes my heart skip a beat and sing!!
Thank you for stopping by...make sure you head on over and leave some love for all the other entries here.
Love Belynda-Lee xxx

Fantastic detail Belynda. Well worth all the effort. Such intricate detail (how many hours worth?!?!) It looks divine, you are a truly "creative butterfly".
