Hiccupotamus

I overheard her telling Daddy that she got the hiccupotamus, and thus finally, I can part with the most delicious Sassafras chipboard hippo :)

The Color Room Palette 12 is up and the colors exude elegance to me. I found in my stash the most lovely PP by SEI that matched this palette so perfectly. This layout was very easy to put together, I simply used the design of a sheet of the Basic Grey basics PP and covered it with other PP. Then I added a few embellishments, and voila. I love this photo of her and above all else, I love the little story for this layout.

Here is the palette, isn't it awesome??
On another totally exciting note, Crate Paper spotted the Color Room and somehow my layout ended up on the blog. I was quite stoked! It's particular exciting when I didn't try by sending in my layout :)  Yay!  Thank you Crate Paper!

i saw your layout on the crate blog - how exciting!!

about my sewing machine - it's a regular size one - janome jem platinum 720. i bought it a couple of years ago thinking i'd learn how to sew. yeah right. it sat untouched until a few months ago when i finally decided to learn how to turn it on. now instead of hand stitching on my cards i use it on almost everything.
