A lot of times I get caught up in all of the great challenges that are out there and once my layout for that particular challenge is done, I think "well, what am I gonna do now?". How about doing a layout (or two) just for fun...just because you want to...no strings attached...no requirements...no prizes awarded! And that's just what I did with this layout!
I think the Farmhouse collection from Crate Paper is probably one of my #1 top favorites out there right now. The colors are Autumn colors, which is my most favorite color scheme and the patterns are awesome, but subtle. I think I need a whole "crate" worth of these!! For this layout, I worked with one of the sketches that I created (specifically for this page) and finally got to use it today.
I changed up the sketch a little bit, by moving my title down and adding a little bit of journaling at the top of the page. The flowers are just fussy cut from one of the papers and I cut the letters for the word "UP" on my Expression using the Arial Black font. I used some baker's twine to add the little stitched "x's" for some texture on the page and finished it off with one of the wild cards from October Afternoon.
