Scrapbook Challenges - Sketch # 155
"The apple doesn't fall far from the tree"

This is my take on Rowee's sketch for SC. The title says it all... =D I wish I'd done some journalling on this but I didn't know where to put it. I was a little put off by the stitching here (which is awful) and I wish there was a better way I could've done it (maybe I should've used string? Same as the knots on top of the red polka-dot border).

I added the white "pompom" ribbons on friday when I visited MWL and bought (yet again!) more stash. I'm wishing I bought more than 1 meter each of those (I got them in green, black, white and pink).
