I live in Maryland with my hubby of 7 years and my two little ones (ages 4 and 2) who keep me hopping all day long! I work part-time as a School Psychologist, and full-time as a mama ;-) I started scrapping 5 years ago when I was pregnant with my son, and it didn't take long for me to become addicted! Thankfully, my wonderful artistic husband supports my habit (I mean hobby!). I feel very blessed to be on the design teams for the manufacturers Fancy Pants and Luxe, as well as the online store/kit club, Create My Keepsake. My work has been published in Memory Makers and Scrapbook Trends magazines, and you are always welcome to visit me on my blog: http://www.creatingmyeveryday.blogspot.com/

My challenge is to use chipboard as a guide to do hand stitching. For my layout, I poked holes with my stitching needle around each chipboard letter in my title, and then stitched through the holes. You could use this technique not only on letters, but on shapes as well. You could also use grungeboard, acetate, or anything else that has some thickness to it - the possibilities are endless!
