Our October Guest Designer
Steffanie Seiler
has created this adorable layout inspired by our 
October Sketch with Stash Challenge
"Latest Addition"
And this is what Steffani shared about her layout:  
I am a big fan of sketches and start most of my layouts using one as a guide. This particular sketch suited by photos so well that I really didn't change much of anything. I began with some subtle misting in the background using a numbers stencil which I thought tied in nicely with the word "addition" in my title. I machine stitched just as in the sketch indicated---one of my favorite go-to techniques! I thought about stitching in the lower corner as well, but in the end decided it wasn't necessary, especially with the journaling there. One obvious change I made was to use bones instead of stars which better supported my subject. Thank you, Brenda, for a great sketch to work with!
