SMC Lay Outs Challenge - Cut it all by Hand!

Drag out your scissors and your paper. (In my case a good ruler too.)
Because I'm directionally challenge, even when cutting, I opted to go very simple on this one. The squares and matting were cut and distressed. Then I used scalloped edged scissors to cut a little decorative tag to use for my journaling.

And here it is...

So, what do you think? Are you loving that little Duncan sitting on top the mushroom? What mushrooms and cherries have in common...I have no idea, but they are in the food category, right? Besides, he looks good in red. Now that you've seen my little project, how about making one of your own and joining us at the Sew Many Lay Outs Challenge this week. Click HERE for all of the details on what you need to do.

Stop over to the Sew Many Challenges blog and pick up your freebie for the week before it is gone. It is a really cute little sand castle, perfect for all of the summer beach lay outs that you'll be working on this summer.

Don't forget to pay a visit to our sponsor this week...Hydrangea Hippo!
