creative scrappers 175

loved the sketch this time at creative scrappers so had to play along
here is the sketch
and here is my layout
I watched Lileth's video the other day and she demonstrated how to drape the floss on the page so I thought I would give it a go just to break up the plain background on this page (it looks much nicer IRL
I used basic grey papers and did lots of stitching on my machine
Hope you like it

HMITM - 181

This was the challenge
Johnny Appleseed
It's Johnny Appleseed day and while nobody else may be excited about it I am. My children are descendants of Johnny Appleseed so we have books, counted cross stitch pictures, etc. about him.

Our challenge this time is going to do a layout using apples in it. So it can be a recipe page, layout about fall or anything that uses apples. Since apples come in three colors I want the colors of the layout to have red, yellow and green in them.
3 apples
3 red,
3 yellow, and
3 green embellishments - ( buttons, brads, twine)

And here is my layout
I wasn't sure what pics to use and then I came across these of leon enjoying a can or 2 of cider while we were at challaborough bay one time and cider well thats apples right? lol
The title is based on a song by a band called The Wurzels 
The papers are mainly sassafras.The green apples are from a stampin up paper, mixed thickers title and some brads and twine from my stash
Leon had a giggle when he saw it, hope you do too

Ever so Slightly Loopy

We were asked at the Nook to make something pretty using a snap we took on the Labour day weekend but of course we don't celebrate that here in the UK so I have wanted to scrap this pic of my friend Claire acting the fool for ages and we were on holiday/vacation at the time so that counts right?? lol

The picture looks slightly blurry for some reason will have to take another tomorrow to see if i can rectify that would do it now but of course it's raining again now!

I used some MME lime twist and scraps of AC paper, jillibean soup journalling sprouts, cosmo cricket mini market alphas and the rest is from my stash
Hope you like it!
