Kudos to those of you who get the title reference.
Anyways, before we had kids and when we lived in Central NY, hubby and I had a garden and we used to love to grow and can and pickle foods. We did all kinds of peppers, pickles, and our favorite: dilly beans. We haven't had much luck growing things here in TX, mainly because we are gone for most of the summer. But when we went strawberry picking a few weeks ago, they had some great produce at their farm market, so we picked up a few tiny pickling cucumbers to make some pickles (which Charlotte loves).
I used goodies from a few of my recent Scrapbook Circle kits. I am starting to finally dig into them because I am all caught up with some of my assignments. There was a sketch challenge on the SBC blog with an awesome sketch by Diana, so I had to play along! Here is the sketch:
I stuck to a green and tan color palette and added a few more photos than the sketch called for (and you can see that I rotated it, too). I love that bright green Amy Tan paper that I used for the large banner and the green foam letters, too! PLUS I finally got to put some of those mason jar papers to work, too!
Because it was a food themed layout, I felt I had to use some baker's twine, so I strung some on and stitched over it in some parts.
It feels so good to dig into my kits and do some pages for me! :)
