With Friends - lo

It's Thursday again and it means a new sketch challenge at Sketches In Thyme. This week it's an open challenge, where everybody get to choose whatever sketch they wish to work on.
I took November 15th sketch at Stuck?!. Here's the sketch:

I really liked the simplicity of this sketch, so the eye is drawn directly to the photo. The photo is of my kids with my BF's older kids, about 4.5 years ago (see how my youngest is still chubby? :)))...).
I did some handstitching to get all the parts together, and then some faux stitching around the matting and on the edges of the cs. A little doodling and that's it!
The cs is DCWV and all dp are K&Co., the curly die cuts I simply can't remember the manufacturer (maybe WeR Memory Keepers?), lace is from my stash. For the butterflies I used MS punch.

Here's a close-up on the butterflies, the doodling and the hand stitching:

Now it's your turn to play open sketch with us. Take any sketch you wish, make a lo and show us what sketch you choose, and don't forget to come over to Sketches In Thyme and link your lo. Mostly - have fun!!! (I surely did )

And I'm also entering this lo for the following challenges:
vintage colors - gingersnap
photo inspiration - crafty ann
die cuts - papertake weekly

And one more thing, don't forget we're having a fabulous blog hop at Frosted Design, starting Dec 3rd untill Dec 5th. It's gonna be fun fun fun, and you don't want to miss it!

Thanks for taking the time and visit me!

השבוע ב- Sketches In Thyme יש אתגר חופשי - אפשר לבחור כל סקיצה ולהכין על פיה דף. אני בחרתי את הסקיצה הפשוטה הזאת מ- !?Stuck, היא מצאה חן בעיני בגלל הפשטות שלה, שגורמת לכך שהעין נמשכת ישר לתמונה. התמונה היא של הילדים שלי עם הילדים הגדולים יותר של חברתי הטובה, והיא צולמה לפני כ-4.5 שנים (כמה צעיר הבנים שמנמן בתמונה!!!).
תפרתי את התמונה עם המאטינג, התחרה והחיתוכים המסולסלים עם חוט רקמה. מסביב הוספתי גם תיפורים בעט סיגנו לבן. קצת שירבוטים בעט הלבן בין הפרפרים, שפונצ'צ'ו עם פאנצ' של מרתה סטיוארט. הקארדסטוק הוא DCWV והניירות המדוגמים הם .K&CO.
ושוב מככבות האותיות של "תוצרת הארץ". הנה קלוז-אפ עליהן:

פשוט נהדרות!

תודה על תשומת הלב :).

I love the look of handstitching...I think it adds so much to a layout or card! Love what you've done!

This is such a beautiful layout, I love how the photo takes the spotlight and really shines. Your stitching is such a beautiful touch, too - both the real and the faux. Thanks for playing along at Gingersnap Creations!

קצר וקולע- אהבתי מאוד את התפירה ובכלל שהמשכת אותה החוצה ולא נשאר במסגרת- מעניין יותר.

הסרטים מעל התחרה משגעים- נתת הרגשה של תנועתיות

והפרפרים בצד מדהימים ומשלימים את הרגשת התנועתיות.

כל הכבוד אהבתי מאודדדד
