Little Scraps of Heaven Designs Challenge - Make It Large!

Hello everyone! Welcome to another Monday which means another Little Scraps of Heaven Designs Challenge!

This week our challenge is to create a layout with a very LARGE paper piecing. We want your main paper piecing to be 10"-12" tall.

This challenge was so fun for me and all of the design teams layouts came out soooo super cute! Check them out on the blog or on the facebook fanpage to get inspiration :)

Here is my layout;
I started with EP paper and of course my little LSHD paper piecing. I used the "cute cookie" file and sized him up to 10". I cut an extra cookie to use as a mat for my title. I misted my background with a light blue but it is so light that you can barely tell. After uploading my picture I decided to add a little orange bow to my bear as well to make this page a little more girly since this is Kenzie and because of all the blue and she has no clothes on she looks like a little boy ;) This was back when she was 9 months old. She looooved those Gerber Arrow Root cookies so much that she almost ALWAYS had a cookie crumb face! I thought this file went great!

I welded my shadow letters in my Cricut Design Studio from the simply sweet cartridge. Then my top layer I dipped on by one into some silver glitter after running it through my xyron.. man was that a pain!! It came out soooo beautiful though so I guess it was worth it! ;)

And one last close up of my cute little cookie monster bear :)

I hope you will join us and enter for your chance to win!

Well how did I miss thie cutie patootie of a layout? Oh my goodness is this ever so adorable!! I just love it so much! I really came on here to say thank you for leaving me such a sweet comment so fast. uggh.. I'm so tired. Must go to bed. My blog is just ok. I was bored with my other one... but then got that one... played around with it too long and then just left it. :-) So there it stays. It's on the cheery side.
Thanks Michelle for always being a very encouraging DT sister friend! You are so great!!
