This week I am so excited to be joining the lovely ladies (including my own sister, Rebecca) over at the Catered Crop as a member of the design team! I cannot even begin to tell you how much of an honor it is to have been asked to join such a talented group of crafters.
This week's recipe swap is "Color Me A Rainbow" and it gave me the perfect excuse to break into some of the October Afternoon "Fly a Kite" collection that I have been hoarding. I have a special affection for this collection because it is the line that started my obsession with OA products. I really like the cheerful color scheme and the whimsical designs.
Supplies used: October Afternoon patterned paper, stickers and journal card,
Jenni Bowlin vintage buttons, American Crafts thickers, ribbon and cardstock.
I am not sure if my design quite lives up the expectations I had for this paper, but in the end I am really happy with this layout for a completely different reason. While I was working on it, I jokingly asked my husband if he would do the journaling for me. To my compete surprise, he said "yes". Since the photos are of our kids with their great-grandmother on his side, I think it is special to have their daddy's perspective on the day.
