A Labor of Love

Hello all! If you've been following the Authentique blog, you'll know that today February's sketch challenge went live! When I saw the sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Executing my brain child was a different story, though.

Here are the sketches for this month:

After 6+ hours of hand-stitching, here is the final product:

And here is a close-up of some of the detail work:

The picture is of my daughter with her Godparents, who also happen to be my best friend and her husband. It means the world to me that they are in my daughter's life, as well as ours. I only hope this layout shows how much they mean to me.

I hope you all will play along with this month's challenge! I look forward to see what you all create!



  1. Wowza! This is gorgeous, Cristine! Love that stitching!

  2. This is such a sweet layout! I can definitely see Brenda's influence!


I love comments! Let me know what you think!
