SG Lovers Hop Ninth Stop



Welcome to the Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop for March, if this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link.
 Lately, I have been working on photos of my Jido (grandpa) uncle and his family's trip of twenty years ago. They went sightseeing while at a Big Red 1 Infantry of WW II. Because I had a good amount of photos I decided to do a two page sketch from the Travel book. I love how this came out. It is simpler than my usual pages but it still has a big impact. 
Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts), pattern paper (October Afternoon and Studio Calico), stickers (American Crafts), mist (Studio calico), wood buttons, twine (Timeless Twine), border punch (EK Success) and stitch template (American Crafts) 
Here is a close up of the stitching.

You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.

Next on the hop is Lori S., leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be drawn on Monday, March 10th, so you have one week to leave a comment.

In case you get lost at any point, here is the list all the blogs
