Sweet {October Kit: Birds of a Feather Kit Co; Crate Paper: Farmhouse Collection}

My blog has been quiet but that is because I have been busy working with the October kit from Birds of a Feather Kit Co. Amy was so great to let me design for her again! This is my first layout to share:
 The kit is full of FALL and SCHOOL theme papers but when I saw the little tag from Jillibean Soup that says "Fresh Picked" I immediately thought of newborn baby pictures.
The dress that my little one wore home from the hospital was a cherry print and these apples actually looked like cherries to me. I used the chipboard piece and punched a scallop circle from one of the papers in the main kit. The other squares are all trimmed from a piece of paper in the add-on. The little banner sticker is a small piece from the border stickers that are in the add-on embellishments. 

I added a little stitching across the banner, under the name stickers, and in the corner of the upper square.

 The little tags in the add-on are ADORABLE! So much fun. And talking about fun, in the main kit, you get a whole collection of Maya Rd alterable wooden buttons! I distressed this button with Cats Eye Chestnut Roan ink and then used a brown marker to color in the inner crevices that I couldn't reach with the ink pad.
 I also wanted to say that I lifted the design for this layout from the packaging material that comes with the Jillibean Soup corrugated letters! The grid design really stood out to me and then the squares on the "Homemade" paper seemed like the perfect fit! The kit is available and ready to purchase as well as all of the add-ons. I'll be back soon with another layout to share! :-)
