Journaling says: We've been going to Eddie Park ever since Fox was a tiny baby. He's always loved swinging in the swings. We haven't quite graduated to the big kid swings yet, but we're practicing and soon enough he won't need our help!
How to: Die cut a bracket shaped page from yellow cardstock and a doily from scrap cardstock. Place the doily on the background, spray over it using white mist, then remove the doily. Stitch the background onto a white woodgrain transparency using aqua thread. Stitch three sets of three "x"s using aqua floss around the edges. Punch 1" squares and cut triangles from patterned paper and transparencies then arrange them in a quilt-inspired pattern. Back the hexagons with black and white photos then stitch around each "circle" using aqua thread. Fill in the empty hexagons with journaling and embellishments. Tuck two stickpins into the top. Add green alphabet stickers to the top and bottom for the title. Apply cloud rub ons to the top right and bottom left corners.
