{ My Mind's Eye Challenge #25 }

I wanted to share a layout I made for My Mind's Eye blog challenge #25.

I fell in love with the American Made collection and I was finally able to use it for the sketch challenge. The photo of Alex is from last year and I have way too many to count. Everything on the page is from MME. I added the little star banner from Echo Park sticker sheet that I found the other day. I hand stitched the stars and I used Nestabilities Dies Stars to outline the shapes. I went to a stamp show last weekend and won a gift certificate to one of the stores there and that is what I got. 

I used my new Therm O Web adhesive on this project. For the patterned paper I used  Sticky Strip Runner (my favorite). For the pinwheel I used my other favorite adhesive, Zots (small)!!! I adhered one clear adhesive dot after each fold to give the pinwheel a little bit of dimension. To adhere the big pinwheel down I used Zots - Large. Perfect for a large area. 

***If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend, we have Christmas in July crop going on at Citrus Tree Studio starting right now. Lots of fun challenges and prizes!!!
Hope to see you there. My challenge starts at 6PM CST.
