MDSM51 We're in Stitches!

Well once again my attempt at Auto Post failed..lol I have no idea why I can't figure it out. Anywho!!! Time for a new Sketch at MDS Monday and this round I'm your hostess and I created a great page sketch for us and I thought it'd be fun to add some stitching to the page. 



I'm not going to lie I struggled a bit with my own sketch..lol It was tricky and I like what I came up with but I'm not super happy with the title. I tried several different colors and nothing was working. So I went with white. 

I have a ton of photos from my Husband's time in the Navy that need put together so I pulled these out. These are pictures that they take while on deployment and then they send them out to the families while they are gone. These were taken while the ship was being moved from the East to the West coast for a change of Homeport. The USS Carl Vinson CN70.

  1. Really this page, the layout is great. It caught my eye, because of my husband had been in the Navy too. Never thought to put his pics on a scrapbook page...Might make a nice Father's day gift...thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Holly, this is really a great page. The background, stitching and "paper" you created for the layers is perfect for your pictures and theme. I love the circle title too!!!
