Today is my day at SOUS to feature my take on this week's challenge - die cut clothing.

I'll admit it - I resisted this challenge at first. I had to search my pinterest board until I found a layout I really liked and wanted to scrap lift.

In order to tackle this challenge I knew I would have to indulge my "girly" streak instead of my usual boy layouts. I could have done overalls or tennis shoes but that's not where my brain was going.

I loved the thought of a huge paper bow on my layout. I just added a feminine dress for fun really, but the true "die cut clothing" is the bow tie.

I started out using a homemade kit (from my own supplies) but then it morphed into opening drawers, pulling out bling, etc etc. This layout took on a life of it's own. Considering it has been WEEKS since I made a page so I am really happy with how this turned out.

The only thing I think this page needs is stitching. Whoa is me, my sewing machine is put away in my closet. Way too much work to get it out. You ladies know what I'm saying right?!

Thanks for stopping by today!!

I really loved the layout that I used for inspiration.
There was more I wanted to do but my creative brain
just wouldn't let me.

I just used black pen for the faux stitching. The cute little dress
is from the Silhouette Store.

This bow actually comes with another layer. But I decided it was too
fat for a layout.
