Carina's Fall Festival/Petting Zoo layout

After all that focus on cards and Gallery Idol last week, I have really been in the mood to scrapbook. I'm continuing to meander my way through the events of last year.

I'm using a lot of product from Cocoa Daisy's January kit, Tea and Cupcakes, for this layout. One of the papers, Basic Grey's Home Sweet Home, features these beautiful flowers. I used a strip of it on the right page, but ended up cutting out a bunch of the flowers to use as embellishments. This is time consuming, but I love the way it looks.

The title was made using Taylored Expressions new Tall and Skinny Alpha dies. I love the font and I used some Little Yellow Bicycle Hello Spring Jewel Stickers as the dots for the 'i's. The letters as well as the cut flowers were all run through my Xyron 5" Creative Station - makes adhering them SO much easier.

I used some of the embellishments that came in the kit, American Crafts yellow ric rac ribbon and tag, adding some Lemondrop Twinery twine to the tag.

When I got to the journaling, it looked a little too blocky/solid, so I used the Purple Cows summer punch and a corner rounder to soften the block and added some Colonial White cardstock underneath.

And, since I always have more photos than I can get on the page, I used a 4x6 flip flap to add two extras.

This layout just makes me smile. Hope you like it. Sorry that the photos aren't the best. I still struggle to take photos of the double pagers....I think I need (want) a wide angle lens.....
