This layout has taken most of the day. I did the stitching around the layout by hand and I didn't realize how long that would take, once that was done the rest was easy. I used felt, vinyl and chipboard Thickers, I love these things! I punched the lacy border on the mat and then back it with real lace. I wanted a really girly layout for this sweet picture of Madeline when she was three years old.
