October Afternoon = Happiness

A week or so ago I was featured in the Readers Spotlight on the October Afternoon blog. As a reward/prize they sent me a box of goodies including their 2 Winter CHA releases, Thrift Shop and Fly a Kite. I swooned and couldn't wait to put it to work on some layouts.

I first fell in love with OA because they have the BEST journaling stickers around. I think I have them in every line they've released. From there it just spiraled. I just love their product and the fact that the lines look great together.
TITLE: Warm my Heart
Journaling: My sweet Ellie. The more I know you the more head over heels I feel. Just look at your sweet, innocent face. Those soft, kissable cheeks. I am always stealing a smooch. I look into those big, dark eyes of yours and wonder who you will grow up to be. I know that as your Mom I am supposed to love you. But it is so much more than that. I am beyond smitten. You have captured your own special nook in my heart and warmed it. Oh how I adore you- my precious little girl. Some times there are simply not enough words to describe how much I utterly & completely love you- always.

Product: October Afternoon Thrift Shop, Cherry Hill, Farm Fresh & Fly a Kite papers, October Afternoon alphabet & journaling spot, American Crafts alphabet & buttons

TITLE: Matches & Gasoline
Nick has given Bennet and Scout the nicknames 'Matches & Gasoline', for good reason. B is the instigator and Scout just adds fuel to the fire.

When I had my Thickers out for the layout posted above I noticed the giant ampersand and this layout just jumped into my head. Isn't that photo of Scout funny? She got into my makeup the other day.

Journaling: Your sweet faces don't fool me. There is a reason why Dad calls the two of you

Product: October Afternoon Thift Shop & Fly a Kite paper, October Afternoon journaling spots, My Minds Eye Rub Ons (red) and American Crafts
TITLE: Biggest Sister
I didn't have the right color for 'Biggest' so I painted some felt Thickers.
Journaling: right from the start bennet wanted us know that she wasn't your big sister she was the biggest sister.
