Another Layout

Here's the second layout I started at the crop, and just finished today. It's based on this sketch:

This photo is of me and my sister Tricia, at Easter this past year. PP is all Jillibean Soup Lentil Soup line. I painted a Bazzill paper flower, which was a bright pink color, with MM paint (Cranberry, I think). The alphas are the new Jillibean Soup corrugated letters (LOVE these!), and painted them with the same MM paint. Ribbon is Jillibean Soup as well.

What? A Layout?

It has been FOREVER since I have done a scrapbook layout...maybe five months or so, I'm not even sure. When we put our house on the market I wasn't scrapping because I didn't want to mess up the room - had to be "show ready"! Then between the time we were in contract and the actual closing I just lost my mojo. After the move there was a lot to do to get this house in order, and I still hadn't got my mojo back.

Well, I'm not sure that I have it back quite yet, but it was definitely good to go to a crop the other night with some friends. We of course talked the majority of the time, so I got very little done. In fact, only one layout is complete so far. Others are still in process.

This layout was a lift from Kelly Goree. I used all Basic Grey on this one, but I can't seem to remember the line off the top of my head. The pictures are from our visit to Kings Island this summer with my family:

It's Apple Picking Time!

I love Fall! There are just so many things about it - the changing leaves, and cooler temperatures (of course we're not there yet...still 80 degrees outside), college football, pumpkins, Halloween, bonfires, and of course...apple picking! We go every year to Lynd's Fruit Farm to pick our own bag of apples. It's a bit more of a drive for us now from our new house, but well worth the memories!

Last year was the first year we brought Avery, and she seemed to enjoy herself, but didn't really "get" what we were doing (she had just turned 1 then). This year, she had a lot of fun, and thought it was pretty cool to pick the apples off the tree. She took her job very seriously.

She enjoyed eating the apples even more, plopping herself down on the ground and taking a break from all the hard labor we were forcing her to do :)

Isn't she just a cute little thing walking down the orchard path?

Love this picture of her...

And the real reason we go apple picking every year? It's an excuse to make this...

Mmmmmm! What else we gonna do with all them apples?
