Little Star (Scrap Our Stash Challenge #22)

A new stash challenge was released on the Scrap Our Stash blog
on January 1st and today is my turn to share with you my DT take on it!

Click HERE for all the details on how to play along.

  Here is the layout I made for this brand new challenge!

I know that double-page layouts are not necessarily the trend these days, but when I started
 scrapbooking back in 2004, that is all I made, and I have to say that I still enjoy them a lot. 
Double the layout, double the fun! 

My layout was based on this sketch by Kelly Klapstein
provided on the Canadian Scrapbooker blog

This stash challenge was also a lot of fun! I got stuck on a couple letters, but with a little help from my friends (thank you SOS DT gals), I found some cool stash items for every letter in the word T-W-I-N-E.

 Let's start with 'T'.
Aside from the obvious twine, I used TAGS on my page. 

 The 'W' is represented by WOOD VENEER shapes.

For the letter 'I', I thought of adding some faux stitching with white INK.  

 As for 'N', the overall theme of my layout was inspired by the NURSERY RHYME 'Twinkle, twinkle, little star'.  Words from the famous rhyme just happened to be printed all over the pattern papers used 
from My Mind's Eye 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Boy' and Carta Bella 'Baby Mine'.

And last but not least, I included EYELETS to represent the letter 'E'.

I can't wait to see what words you will come up with! 

The January sponsor for this challenge is 17 Turtles
