As I write this Sunday night I am distracted by a football game. Well, to be honest I couldn't care less about the game but I do love watching the adverts. So far Doritos has done quite well. The Chevy truck "Timmy fell down the well" ad had us in stitches and I enjoyed the Coke ad featuring border guards - it was cute.
So, this week the design team is continuing with the BSC #19 sketch, and we're adding "plus fabric" to our projects as a little twist.
I used the delicious My Mind's Eye Portobello Road collection. All four layers of paper are different designs within the line, and the birds are cut from the Love Birds paper. My fabric bunting is made from upholstery fabric I used for my family room pillows. I finished the edge with a scrap of seam binding and then sewed the blue crocheted lace from the "Party Trims" accessory pack (after I separated it from the crepe paper). To be honest, it was labor-intensive.

[Edit] *ahem* It's Monday morning and seems I was distracted enough last night to disable comments on this post. Oops. It's fixed now.
