(the studio} favorites

It is all about favorites this week at The Studio Challenges!  The challenge is for you to use your favorite product(s) and technique(s) on your layout! 

SRM Stickers and My Mind's Eye papers and embellies have been my favorite products to use for well over a year.  I don't see that changing any time soon.  I cant help myself!  :)  With that said, I have to admit this layout got away from me a bit.  I'm happy with the results though, because it fits Brenden's (my oldest and said 17 year old!) personality - colorful and loud.  :)

My favorite technique is to sew on my cards and layouts, either by hand or with my machine. This time I used my machine to sew down the pennants.

We have a wonderful sponsor this month, Crafty Templates is offering up this Quirky Kit. Upload your projects for both of the May challenges for a chance to win.
  Be sure to check out the blog to see the team's favorites!

While at my desk, I used some scraps from previous projects to make a quick Father's Day tag using twine (Let's Get Trendy) and flags (MSW - Lisa's Flag Card challenge).

#1 Dad

I just adore this tiny twine from May Arts!

These little flags were so easy to make, all you need is a toothpick, a glue dot and some scrap paper!

Happy Sunday, friends! The heat has arrived in the Midwest in a big way. Air conditioning is my friend.  :)
