Hello smile

Hi everyone,  today I have my first Guest DT post for Epiphany Crafts!!  I was so excited to be chosen as a guest DT for Epiphany Crafts, I own almost all of the tools...I love these things!!

Since this is summer fun week, I decided to use some recent photos of my son playing in the pool.  My son is 12 years old and does not like to get his photo taken (I'm sure most of you with teen boys can relate). Well a few weeks ago he was being very cooperative and even giving me real smiles, not the usual "I have to force a smile for the camera" smile that he usually gives me!  LOL

I hand stitched the circles (which took me forever!!)  From there I embellished with bits and pieces all around the circles.  I used the Round 14 tool, Round 25 tool, and the Chevron tool.

Here are a few close ups:

I really love how versatile these tools are.  You can create any kind of embellishment you can imagine!


  1. I love this layout, Michelle! The stitched circle is just awesome, and I love all the details you added. Looks like I need to check out these goodies from did a great job with it all and makes me want it :)

  2. This is fabulous. Makes me want to break out my tools. I love the look of the smaller circles. Almost like making your own enamel dots.

  3. This is just fabulous, Michelle!!
