I just got the October Afternoon 5&Dime papers from Your Scrapbook Stash and when I saw the piece with the farm animals on it, a story came to mind which I journaled about on this page! :)
I used this sketch from "The Scrappiest" and turned it to fit my photo. I just got a new camera lens and was playing around with it the other day and snapped this photo of Charlotte to use on my page for this story.
My hubby is such a jokester.... anyways, I stitch around the main photo and journaling block and painted a chipboard frame with red paint and stitched that with the machine, too. I love machine stitching on chipboard! I need to do it more often....
Then I did this page using my April Cocoa Daisy kit, which I am still so in love with!!!!!http://www.cocoadaisy.com/forum/
Isn't it funny how you start a page with an idea in mind and it ends up nothing like you were thinking? That's what happened with this page. Even though it was based on a sketch, the colors and embellies I was thinking in my head just wasn't what the finished prodcut looked like. That being said, I really love the way this came out, still!
sketch by Kristin at Memorable Seasons....
I used the packaging from the Jillibean Soup butterfly pins behind some embellies to make them stand out more.
Love the layered pop pieces from Basi Grey and the small doilies from Cosmo!
I have a mini album to share soon and as promised, some pics of my new scrap space!
