What is your name?

The 2nd challenge over at So Tell Me Your Story is up. For this challenge, scrapbook about your name, you can include info of how your parents decided on it, it's history or simply what it means! Here is what I did for this challenge:

To make the stitched design, I stamped a Fancy Pants swirly stamp on my cardstock. Next, I used a paper piercer to follow the lines. Over that I painted the swirls. Now it was easy to stitch because I had prepoked my holes.
I am *so* into stitching on my layouts right now. The only reason I don't like to machine/hand sew is because I'm too lazy to drag out the stuff I need, especially with 4 kids running under my feet all day long! ;)

Hope to see your layouts posted on the STMYS blog!
