Punch Art and Apple Picking

Good Morning, Even though I LOVE to scrapbook, I never seem to have the time to do it!  Well, I had a workshop last night and one of the gals had requested a scrapbook page.  Oh my!  Haven't done that in a while but I'm up for a challenge!  So after looking around SCS and seeing many different things that inspired me (thanks to all the ladies who post over there!)  This is what I came up with.......if I do say so myself, I'm really proud of this page.  Can't wait for Christmas to fill it with pictures.

This picture doesn't do it justice, but trust me, its gorgeous!  I did a 6x6 to start with to show them how to do a progessive page.  I used Bashful Blue, Night of Navy and Real Red cardstock.
And of course our fantastic glitter paper!  I LOVE that stuff!.  My tree is made out of about 10 large hearts punched out and sponged with Bashful Blue to give them that "chilly" effect of snow on a tree.  I was bummed we don't carry a star punch any more and I didn't have the Big Shot star dies.  But I actually had an ah ha moment when I looked at the Boho Blossom punch! And of course the tree trunk is with the Modern Label punch.

To keep the snow away just a little longer we did do our annual apple picking day on Sunday.  It was a beautiful fall day, the sun was shining and I was with my little family.  Every year we go to The Apple Barn in Elkhorn.  Its one of the last orchards out there that actually let people pick apples off their trees.  We started this tradition about 5 years ago and we just love it.

Here's my artist picture taking!  I just love the cluster of apples within the tree.

Edwin and Sage always the hams!  Its hard to see Sage's face in the shadows but she has a half eaten apple in her mouth.
 Me and my girl!
