NEW October Afternoon!

Hey everyone!  Today I have a layout to share that I created with some brand spankin' new papers from October Afternoon.  October Afternoon is hands down one of my favorite companies and I was so excited to see their two new releases at the show, Fly A Kite and The Thrift Shop.  They just have such a way with colors and patterns.  The good gals at the booth (Charity and Angie) were kind enough to give me some paper to play with and play I did!  LOVE both new releases and can't wait to get my hands on some more!

I used Fly A Kit for this layout.  The colors in this line are so bright and airy.  I had these older photos of Darian just itching for a layout and I was happy to finally be able to put them to good use.

 

Since I was mostly just playing with paper I decided to have a little fun with my punches and scissors and create this cute little cloud with a sun peeking out behind it to help play off the theme of my photos.

And just a little detail shot of my title work.  I used the chip letters from the Nook & Pantry line by Basic Grey and placed them on another larger little cloud die cut.  A sticker from the Farm Fresh line by October Afternoon and a orange button tied with some brown baker's twine from Studio Calico finishes it all off.


That's it for today.  I've been reorganizing my space a bit this weekend.  I'm always in a state or constant reorganization - or at least it feels that way.  I'm always trying to find the most efficient way to store my stuff while purging a bit of the old and making room for the new.  LOL  Thanks for stopping by!
