More YELLOW...

I had fun with this layout:

I was inspired by these challenges:

* Mystical Scrapbooks ~ June Challenge #2 ~ Use two different types of heart
* Simon Says Wednesday ~ Use your favourite technique (My favourite technique, hands down, is stitching.  Love, love, love stitching on my layouts!)
* Scrap Challenge Yourself ~ Anything Goes ~ That's me on the left in the blue shirt (the only female in the photo...)

The fabric is from an old pair of rural fire brigade turnout trousers.  It used to be yellow...

Cosmo Cricket Social Club - Manhattan patterned paper
Basically Bare Hearts 2 calico heart
DMC embroidery thread
Heart buttons
