My first crop

So, I participated in my first online crop. Although I only completed 2 pages, I'm very happy with that. I find that I'm just not scrapping as much as I used to (when I first started) and that I'm never comepletely satisfied with what I do. But, we're our own worst critic!

This first one is of our vacation house just outside of Siena, Italy. It was the most relaxing part of our trek across Europe because we could just come home, cook our own dinner, and have a glass of wine. We didn't have to worry about packing, transportation, or finding somewhere to stay the next night. It was great!

It's a horrible picture, but if you *strain* your eyes, you can see "Our Little Italian" in white on the house chipboard pieace (above the "home")

This is one of my favorite pictures of our time in Venice. This is Josh and I sitting outside of the apartment we rented in the middle of Venice. That city is abosultely amazing (minus the smell), and I definitely hope that we can go there again.

For the stitching on the heart, I used a Bazzil Basics stencil. I love how it turned out (even though I messed up on the year!).

Aren't these buttoms by MM super cute? I also used a sewing pin that I bought at WalMart, you know, to add a little somethin' somethin'
