Fun at the Farm- Felicity Jane Maggie Kit Scrapbook Layout

Oh farm life… how we love it.

Then again, we’re not the one taking care of the farm.  We’re just the neighborhood mother-daughter duo that steps outside in the morning, smells the fresh apple donuts baking, and then hurries over to Johnston’s Fruit Farm the moment the storefront opens.  😉

We casually open the door even though we practically just peeled tire entering the parking lot.  And then we look around as though we don’t already know what fruits are in season waiting to be chosen by those who care to eat a well-rounded diet.  After making several laps around the small space, I say to Nadia, “What should we get for breakfast?” as if I don’t already know the answer.

“Donuts!”

“Well, ok.  Just this once.”  Yeah right.

But we do stop to say hello to the sweet animals at the petting zoo before we leave.

For this layout, I cut down the peach/orange paper from the add-on kit to make a long pocket along the bottom.  I didn’t even cut off the branding strip on either sheet because I just think those pretty scalloped edges are beautiful as they are.  Then I just played around for ten minutes layering the wood veneers, vellum, the stickers, rubber charms, etc. until I achieved the simple yet playful look I was going for.  There are a few photos paper clipped to the large pocket, a tag tucked behind the 4×6 photo on the left, and (of course) I took some crepe paper and ruffled it to add a little extra something to the layout.  🙂

I really enjoy the stamp set this month because not only do you get some great words and phrases to choose from, but there are things like the three dots that can be used either as bullet points to write lists beside, or they can be used to add an extra pattern to your papers like I did along the scalloped edge.

I’m really happy with how it turned out, especially since I gave myself a 10-15 minute time limit to play.  😉  Anyone else ever do that?  Sometimes setting that timer keeps me from overthinking the things that don’t need that much thought and helps me to just create freely without sticking to any “rules.”  Try it sometime if you haven’t!

P.S.- Seriously, though, these donuts are a.m.a.z.i.n.g.
