Amelia

Hello friends and welcome to The Twinery and Top Dog Dies blog hop!  I've been loving everything I've seen so far this week and hope you have too!  If you're here from Stacey's blog, you're in the right spot! If not, head over to the Top Dog Dies blog or The Twinery blog to get started!
Have I mentioned how much I love my daughter lately?  Oh I have?  :)  We had a photo shoot back in December with a professional photographer and had a lot of photos printed for our moms for Mother's Day.  While I was going through that process, I happened upon a wonderful project of a floral letter enclosing a baby photo (I wish with all of my heart I could remember where I saw it and give them proper credit for this idea!) and thought I'd try my take on it along with Amelia's name stitched in twine.

I started off with a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and roughed out the letter A and found a photo that would fit in the center.  I surrounded the photo with a number of paper and fabric flowers along with wonderful die cut flowers using the Pretty Petals and Mini Flower  dies.  I finished the design off with some sequins for some sparkle.

I then hand wrote Amelia's name and then pierced the cardstock so I could stitch it using Blossom twine.  The last piece of the design was a wonderful butterfly from the Butterfly Set.

I had so much fun making this project and now all I have to do is find a frame and get it hung up in Amelia's room.  I think she'll love it when she grows up and I know I'll sure have fun looking at it in the meantime.

I'm sure, by now, you've heard there is a prize up for grab which is a sampler pack of The Twinery's solid twine!  Gorgeous!  All you have to do is comment on each of the designer's blogs along the way.  There will be additional opportunities to win which will be outlined on The Twinery and Top Dog Dies blogs as well.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!
