Sisters in my heart

These are my sisters-in-law, Dianne and Georganna. I love them both dearly. I am so blessed that those pesky little brothers of mine had such good taste when they fell in love all those years ago and brought them into our family. My sisters did a good job of choosing mates, too. There is not an in law in our family I don't love dearly. As always, you can click on the photo to make it bigger and read the journaling.

I did this page for a challenge at Memorable Seasons. A small group of us put together kits of patterned paper, cardstock and embellishments from our stash that we sent to another person in our group. Mine came from Susie. This paper is from Michelle Miller Memories and it is a cotton fabric paper. It is very pretty but a little difficult to work with. It wouldn't tear in straight lines like I expected it to and my ATG would not stick to it. I used scrappy glue and a UHU glue stick. I've never had good luck with glue sticks holding for very long. Have any of you used fabric paper before? What did you adhere it with?

I have only used little bits of fabric paper, but I have used fabric quite a bit.
My fall back glue for everything is Tombo Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. It dries clear and has a pretty strong hold.
Of course with some material the best way I found to really secure it is to sew it.

Love the colors and the "love" that shines through in your layout.

This is such a sweet layout Detta! I did one for my SOY entry with my SIL. Great job!

the layouts I did with it Detta I used a creative memories tape runner without any problem but that was about 2 years ago and then never worked with it again. My problem was I could not find a use for the purse paper and the tower paper in the pack! LOL!
It is however interesting and different to work with! (or in other words could be called difficult if you don't care for it!)
I love what you did with it! It is an outstanding lo!
