My First Some Odd Girl Stamp!

Hi!  I really couldn't resist any longer and got my first Some Odd Girl clear stamp.  I really had to to stop myself from buying them all and tell myself to buy in moderation.  Hahaha.  My order came so nicely packed in a white bag wrapped with twine and there was a piece of cardboard in it to keep it from getting all smashed.  Well, I really loved how it came and the twine and the cardboard were too pretty to throw away so I decided to make another book!  But this time for me.  And the current challenge at Some Odd Girl is to Lift an Odd Girl.  So I looked through all the DT's sites for some inspiration and it was hard to choose!  In the end I had to go with Robin Mck's card.

I'll show the back first.  I used the cardboard piece for the back of my book for stability. 

This is the cover.  The stamp is called Smell the Flowers Tia.  I wrapped the blue twine around the front over the lace.  I love that blue color!  Clouds are from PTI.

Closer pic.  Tia's dress, shoes, arm, hair clip, and flowers are all paper pieced.  I really like paper piecing sometimes but I think I'm gonna need to buy some smaller scissors.

Thanks for reading and hope you had a great weekend!

This is an adorable book, Eva! I love the colors, papers and your beautiful coloring of that sweet some odd girl image! I've been into paper piecing quite a bit lately - like coloring, it tends to help relax me sometimes (mindless cutting, lol).
