December Sketch: 8.5 x 11

I love using stitching on my pages so here's a page with lots of stitching for you stitchers out there!

The Littlest Angel
by Kristii

Isn't this the sweetest layout you have ever seen? I just love how Kristii has hand stitched so many elements on this gorgeous page! She's layered her blinged out title on some beautiful lace and surrounded her sweet photo with the neat wreath of berries! Super creative Kristii! Your hours of hand stitching sure paid off with a gorgeous end page!

This is the LAST sketch that will be loaded to the Blog so that you will have an adequate time to complete any sketches during your holidays to send in for the monthly contest, the Christmas contest or for your submissions to the So Sketchy Design Team call. Good luck everyone!
