Search High & Low Layout

I guess I'm in inspired-by-a-song mode, because the title for this layout slipped into my head and I didn't realize until today that it's from Climb Every Mountain, a song from one of my favorite musicals, The Sound of Music. My kids weren't exactly chasing their dreams, but I thought the idea of searching everywhere was fitting for this layout. I was also inspired by Patti's Thursday challenge at Splitcoast Stampers: use the quote she gave us, plus bright colors, ribbon, and buttons. She wanted us to use squares, too, but I couldn't quite make that work. And since I'm such a talented seamstress (not), I thought I'd participate in the Fabulous Friday Stitching Challenge at Frosted Designs. It takes real talent to pierce holes for your stitching using a template and yet end up with a crooked line - LOL! Oh well, practice makes perfect, so hopefully I'll get the hang of this stitching thing before my eyesight goes and I can no longer thread a needle.
