Scrap Your CRAP ... Challenge #52: Floss it up

This month's challenge at Scrap Your CRAP was to use embroidery floss on a layout.
I wanted to really make my floss "pop" so I used an ecru colour against a dark green background with very few other elements.
The title comes from the Little Rascals character. Whenever I see a photo of my dad as a little guy, I want to call him Spanky.
Aren't those chubby little cheeks and short pants adorable?
I used the February kit from Up The Street as well as some Prima crystals from an add-on.
The title and outside boarder is cut from one of the patterned papers. I love when I can get coordinating elements from a single sheet of paper.And because I was in the "floss zone", I whipped up this fun one using a paper bad as the background and the March kit from Up The Street.

Hello Hello Tara

Thank you so very much for your lovely comments on my blog :)
I do have trouble with warped backgrounds. I found that running them thru a laminator a few times does the trick perfectly!! Ive bought an A3 laminator so I can do both 8.5 and 12" layouts. I wouldnt be without it now :)

Cheers and IHTH's

Oh, cute! :) And such a rad challenge - it's one of my fave things to use on a layout, hand-stitching + embroidery floss!
