My New Year's Resolution - hehe

When I saw this stamp at Hobby Lobby, on sale of course, I just had to get it. It's pretty close to the truth sad to say.

What's different about this stamped image is that I paper pieced it. This is the first time I have ever done one. I probably should have picked an image that didn't have such intricate detail but I didn't do such a bad job if I don't say so myself. I paper pieced, the flower, chair, pillow, cat, her hair, shoes and dress. I even included a BIG close up so you can see all my mistakes but hopefully I covered them well.

I made this a challenge on a CafeMom scrap group that I am part of the admin. Here are some links that show how this technique is done.

Very cute! I've seen that saying before and thoroughly adopted it into my schedule. Hope you're having a wonderful Holiday Season! Merry Christmas!
