Kiwilane DT Doodles 2013 #20

The following is the sketch for the DT Doodles #20:

I used the following templates:  Abbie Road 1A, 1B; Sweetheart 1T, 4T; Accents 1T and Shapes 3T.  Also I used Technique Tuesday 'Live in the Moment' stamp.  I recently bought October Afternoon's Sasparilla collection kit and used it for this project.  The paper pad was 8"x8" so I had to do some paper piecing which is a fun technique that I enjoy.  This paper was so appropiate for my little cowboy.

2 October Afternoon Sasparilla layouts

A couple of months ago, I bought the Sasparilla kit that October Afternoon was selling on their website.  I knew I had some pictures of my grandson that would be perfect for this collection of paper and embellishments.  The following 2-page layouts were fun to make.  I just am having a hard time taking good pictures to display.  Hopefully, practice makes perfect.

Entry in Kiwilane's DT Doodles

A couple of years ago, Carrie and I attended a scrapbook convention in Arlington, TX and discovered KiwiLane.  I have been a collector of their templates since then.  I decided to enter the DT Doodles-2013, week 19 and this is the sketch:

The following is my finished 2-page layout using the following templates:  Floral 1T, Sweetheart 1T and 4T, Tags 3, Abbie Road 1A-1B-3A-3B, and Accents 6T.  I also had a dragonfly Technique Tuesday stamp that I received in a class at the scrapbook convention mentioned above.  Since I have also been a collector of Technique Tuesday stamps, thanks to my daughter, Carrie, I used 'My Little Princess' stamp.

Well, I won the Craftysteals 3rd Thursday Challenge drawing.  This is what I received in the mail.  I have been wanting Teresa Collins Everyday Moments and the package included 3 of her products.  What a great surprise!
