Simon Says Challenge - Paper Piecing

Good morning. I hope you are all OK and enjoying the last few days of the Summer holidays.

Looks like its going to be a very wet one for us today so a good idea to get in the craft room I reckon ! Why not join in with our challenge over at Simon Says Challenge ?

This week our theme is PAPER PIECING.

The DP's are Pink Paislee "Queen Bee" which you can now buy in the Simon Says Stamp Store along with lots of other yummy papers !

The image is by Penny Black and is called "Pieces of Quiet" (if only we could all get our kids to do this for us !!). I have paper pieced his trousers and jumper and coloured the rest with ProMarkers.

The buttons are by BasicGrey.

The stars I cut from my Cricut (I knew it would come in handy for something !!).

Everything I have used you can buy in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

There is a prize of a $25 P&P free shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store kindly donated by Heidi.

I have followed our super duper talented DT's member, Domi, sketch over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge so I'm also going to enter this challenge.

We hope you can join us and we look forward to seeing your paper piecing.

Right, I'm now zooming off to take Mollie to a diving lesson. She dived off the 3 metre board yesterday (gulp !) - what a brave girl - you wouldn't catch me up there !!
