Challenge Yourself #45.

I turned the sketch on its side so that it looked like this.

 Using 2 papers that I counterfeited (or created myself using gold mist) plus a black and white one from my Counterfeit kit, I constructed my background.
The stitching is there, just hard to see as I used a pale green cotton.
Everything on this layout is from my kit.
The die cut saying Smile! is perfect, I think that's exactly what I said. I used faux stitching on it too.
The photos feature my daughter and I at a recent meet-up.

Here's some close ups of the very appropriate Prima brads
Time after time....we are always meeting somewhere!
Eyeglasses brad near Erica's glasses.
Finally Ta Da...the layout!
I'm entering this at Tuesday Taggers as well, because their theme is stitching.
I've used both machine and faux stitching on here.
