H{ippity} Hop March Challenge the "TWIST"

Good Morning everyone.. hope your weekend was full of fun. It was such a busy week here and the weekend was even more. The kids were off for spring break and we had visitors everyday.. so it was a nice busy time. So last night I finally got to do some projects.. I wanted to do a page in my ART journal. I just love the process of splashing paint on a surface and getting creative.
For Week two of the H{ippity} Hop Challenge we were introduced to some fantastic colour combinations and I want to add those colours in my journal.. so Spring like.

Using some of the stamps from the Fall 2010 Ippity Release I made this page.. I used the heart flower stamp from the How You Doin'? set, The Post and the flowers from the Cherish Your Dreams set, The family stamp from the Here and Now set. I have all the colours melded together with a pop of the pink.

For this weeks H{ippity} HOP challenge (IHHTC3) comes the fun part..
it is the TWIST and we are to use some
hand stitching on our project..
Using a very thick needle and some wonderful Twinery Bakers Twine I stitched on this Spellbinders die cut piece.
inking and stamping the family stamp around on the petals. finishing it off with a MM pink brad.

Here is the March Challenge with a twist .. I just love it all
