TCC Feature Friday ~ Paper Piecing

Hi all!! Today is Feature Friday at The Character Cafe and this weeks challenge is Paper Piecing.

When I saw this amazing image in the Cafe Store called The Dock, I knew it was perfect for the spotlight technique! I just LOVE how it brings the focus to the father and son!! I used Max and Whiskers from Basic Grey to paper piece the shorts and shirts. The sentiment is from PTI's Star Prints and I finished it off with a little twine.

To join in on the fun and be eligible for this weeks fabulous prize and check out all the fabulous creations from the Design Team. Head over to the Cafe Blog and link your creation to Mr. Linky by next Thursday evening.

Thanks for stopping by,

AMAZING work on the Angie! LOVE how you did the image and made the circle a different color than the background, VERY STUNNING effect!
