This pattern in called "Scarecrow" and is found under the fall category of Scrapping Bugs Designs. This pattern was painted on an insert of wood and now can be displayed as a dry eraser board. As you can see, the patterns don't necessarily have to be paper pieced. You can transfer them on all different types of materials.

I really enjoyed doing this piece. The mice are from Scrapping Bug Designs and the pattern is "Snowbody loves you like I do" found in the winter/Christmas category. I used styrofoam as the base.

Here is my blog hop candy.  In order to receive this cute birthday card you must leave a comment on my projects and become a follower of my blog.  Thank you and Good Luck!

You Melt My Heart

Bo Bunny papers are my favorite to use. They are so rich and vivid in color. I like to use embellishments on my pages, it just gives a little more depth.


I just love this picture. Watching the birth of my second granddaughter brought such joy to my heart.

I love doing round layouts. This pattern is the Winter Tweets. My favorite colors are purple and teal.
Recent trip to Sesame Place in Pennsylvania. One of my first layouts done with paper piecings.
