Scrap that Hobby with Gabriela!

Hello everyone, Gabriela here with a scrapbook layout using the Anchors Aweigh Collection.

I wanted to make a page today that was personal, but I didn't want to use a photo of myself, instead I used my latest project, a baby quilt. This is my first quilt and I wanted to make a page that expressed believing you can do something and that showcased the project. I started with my background sheet and sewed my borders onto it with a zigzag stitch.


Next I added some fabric to a 5" x 7" rectangle and I did some sewing on that using the same stitch as the background border.


I mounted my photo on a 4.25" x 6.25" rectangle that I chalked with Navy Ink.  The next step was adding some embellishments and journaling. I also decided to do a different type of photo for this since I wanted to show the progress. Here's a look at the collage style photo I used to show some of the quilt progress to date.


This was a very fun page to make and the colors worked perfectly with the fabric I was using for my quilt. I hope this inspires you to scrap a hobby or interest as well.  Thank you for stopping over.
