I delved into some more of my Crate Paper Farmhouse collection for a photo of my DS on holiday and his cheeky smile - we are sat in the town square and they had been playing all sorts of hiding games and just messing around before we got some evening snacks in.
I've seen a few pages with rows of banners underneath - can't find any links to say where I saw them, but that was my inspiration. Also part of the November challenge over on We Scrap was to use some material on a page, so I decided to use up some more of the massive piece of Burlap that I have. I cut a mixture of flags and crumpled and inked the edges. Next I added 2 lines of green stitching, and then zigzaged in and out with yellow thread, adding a brown button on either side. I mounted the photo on white card stock, inked around the edges. Then I started to layer up the pieces behind the photo starting with the doily and acetate from one of Hannah's grab boxes which is also where the cake, flowerk, doily piece and journal piece came from. I used my Martha Stewart Doily edge lace punch on a couple of pieces of left over card, , added these and some of the stickers and die cut pieces from the farmhouse collection as well as the American Crafts cupcake. The title is from the Farmhouse chipboard .... and one more credit goes to my sister-in-law as the red crochet flower you can see under the blue and green on is one she made for me. I added a few splats of paint and some tiny buttons and the journalling ticket behind the photo.
