An apple a day...

Happy Friday everbody! I love Fridays! :) Before I dash out to go and have some lunch with some lovely friends (and some kids), I quickly want to share a layout.  Lol! This layout turned out a bit different to what I planned. I had these gorgeous papers in my DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne and I desperately wanted to take some pics of DD eating a apple. Am I the only scrapper who do things like this????  DD was on her way out with a friend when I stopped her for a 'quick photoshoot'. Her response to me was "Okay Mum. I'll do it, but you owe me money for lunch. It will be a dollar a photo."  Lol! As I normally give her money for lunch anyway, I easily agreed. I took 5 pics before she had enough and before I thought it was getting too expensive... hehehe...So instead of just calling my layout something 'apple related' I thought to tell the story of the 'PAID photoshoot' to remember (in years to come) what I would do for the right photo.
Here's my layout.  I've used pattern papers and stickers from the Jillibean Soup 'Apple Cheddar Soup' range. The kraft paper background was misted using OA 'Red Wagon' Sprinklers and the Crafters Workshop 'Mini Circle Grid' template. I love how 'non-shiney' this mist is. :)
 A little close up of my fabric bow and some other details. :)
The yellow doily is from 'The Chip Chop Shop' and the the rosette flower was cut using the Tim Holtz mini paper rosette die. The bottle cap is from the HBS shop too.
I've got more to share, but I've run out of time. :(
Thank you for visiting!
Until next time.
