Patchwork is FUN!

Ok...so if you have paid any attention to my work at all, then you probably have noticed that I love to use patchwork designs.  So I was thrilled when I found out that this week was going to be Patchwork Week on The ScrapCake's blog.

Here's the layout that I created for Patchwork Week:


Instead of just making a background of squares, I tried to mix it up a little and make it slightly different than my typical patchwork layouts...thus the blocks of four 1" squares with the space in between each one.

I used the fabulous "The Bright Side of Life" collection from The ScrapCake for this layout.

Here are some close up's:

I made that "Sleepover" title with my Cameo.  And then added some fun stitching to my title.  I love the way this layout turned out...it's very me.  :)  

I hope you are having the best of weeks!  Thanks for stopping in!  And I will be back tomorrow with more new Fancy Pants!  ;)
