DT layouts and challenges

Practical Scrappers challenge this week is to use handstitching. I used it for the title, the loops at the top of the photos on the border and as a border across the bottom of the photos. I hope you come play along this week!Challenge Masters Altered Challenge is to create a wreath.
Scrapping the Music's challenge #113 is "Love Me" which is a very touching song that I just love and could cry everytime I hear it. The lyrics " a note my grandma wrote" were so fitting for me. My grandmother I think is the last person in this world who still sends letters! With all the technology in this world, how many people still send handwritten letters... my grandma! In college, my grandmother would write me a letter every week letting me know what her and my grandfather were up to... if she was coming for lunch, etc. Enclosed she would send $5... I saved all those letters, unfortunately they are all in storage while the house is being built... so I enclosed a recent note she sent me.
Progress on the property.... windows are not going perfectly... the ones we ordered last week arrived the wrong size and one was broken. Tonight Brian was putting in the two larger ones which we had and one went in, the other broke... goosfraba! Below is a picture of the driveway being filled back in... all the wires are run and we are ready for our electricity to be hooked up!
I am playing along with two of the design dollies challenges... 1st is their color challenge baby pink and white. I created this birthday card.
Second, I am doing their "use 3 types of water" on your layout challenge with my layout below. I used acryllic accents, bubble wrap stamping, glitter glue, stamping around for the frame which looks like waves... I also created this layout for the Challenge Masters technique challenge.

Thanks for checking out my DT projects and challenges!
I wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
