This is the first time I have ever played along at 123 challenge - and I have no idea why it's taken me so long! It was so much fun, and I got to try things that I never would have otherwise!
For May, the criteria was:
Technique: HAND STITCHED TITLE
Waiting for You:
The Kraft background, didn't photograph very well - but out of the 7 photos I took, this was the closest to the actual colour. It was only the Kraft I had trouble with, all the other colours came out fine.
The journalling reads: The FUN part of setting up your nursery, was finished by early September - and then the waiting started.
Luckily, we knew that you would be born October 7th, so we didn't have to wait too long for you.
That cute little boy button is from, one of my favourite places ever...LIL RED ROCKET. I actually had this layout sitting on my desk, and was waiting for my parcel from the last sale to arrive, as I knew that this button would be perfect.
In true Tamara style the 'you' in the title is a little wonky (the 'Y' isnt quite on the edge of the paper, but I think that if I put a teeny tiny extra stitch in there, it might make it worse?), but I've come to expect that from myself!
In case anyone's wondering - Benji's nursery no longer looks like that - it's still pretty clean, but as was to be expected... a lot more blue, has crept it's way in there!
