Farm Life (SCT April Sketch)

Psst: This is my second post today so make sure to also check out "U R Such a Q T" below!

YAY! I got to play with a double-page sketch (you all know how i feel about double-pages)! :) Look at this beautiful sketch provided to us at the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog
At first the amount of pictures it asked for got me worried, but i went browsing through my old stock and found these pictures of a visit at the historical Acadian Village back in 2006 - it was Yves and i's second official weekend of dating!  I always knew that i would one day find the perfect way to use these... 

Farm Life
The paper used is from different collections of My Mind's Eye and all chipboard pieces (except the title) are from The Dusty Attic. I coloured them with various Colorbox chalks. 
I love the country look & feel that the twine gives. Along with stitching, i've been using quite a lot of it lately!
I have a huge collection of eyelets so lacing on my layouts gives me a chance to use some of them. The best tool i have found so far for affixing them on to the edge of a page is the Crop-A-Dile.  It works like a charm! :)

Now i'm already thinking up ideas to work on SCT's May Sketch!


  1. Love what you did to the alpha title! Fab LO.

  2. Yeah that title treatment is wonderful. Thanks for the tip on Picnick. I'm going to play with it some more but it looks really easy to use.

  3. I love your layout and the windmill is great on the layout. I also love the texture on the title.

  4. wow also beautiful work love it!!!
