Apple Picking

This was the day that little Xavier had his first apple right off the tree. No more applesauce for this guy.

He delighted in being pulled along the rows of apple trees. He took his role as guardian of the apple filled bags very seriously.

I wanted to keep everything 'orchard' colours so stuck went with red, green and brown as my theme colours. I couldn't resist adding an apple core to my layout as Xavier left quite a few of those in his wake as the afternoon wore on.

The sketch my layout it taken from is posted on the Stick It Down blog. In fact on the 1st of each month there are three sketches posted; a single, double and a card. Whether a card maker or layout junkie you'll find more than enough to inspire you.

As a member of the Stick It Down Design Team I'm always excited to see everyone's creations.
I'll be dropping by your blogs to see more of your showcased talent.

Loon Lake

For our summer getaway this year we vacationed at Loon Lake. It's only an hour away but it could have been a whole different world.

I enjoyed morning my tea in a Muskoka chair on the dock. I couldn't get enough of that gorgeous view.

My inspiration for the layout is the July 1st Stuck?! sketch. It showcased my photo beautifully. Stuck?! will have another sketch out on the 15th.

Thank you to my Bestie, and constant source of inspiration, Danie for passing along the technique of using the negative of the stencil as a stencil. I think you get what I mean. :) She's got some great layouts and tips on her site. You should drop by.

I can't wait to showcase more photos from my vacation.
