October Afternoon LO's

October Afternoon have a challenge going about creating a LO, card or project using at least 2 different collections from their range. Check their blog post here.

So I decided to FINALLY use some of their beautiful papers I've had in my stash from the Detours and Home Town collections. The fact that their papers are double sided actually makes it really hard to chose which side to use! And very pleased to be able to say I have used photos that were already printed in the stack I have to scrap :-)

I am getting into the rumbled scruffy look ;-)



This First Easter Treats LO I am not sure I have finished with it ... kwim? Doesn't help that Maddison drew all over it with pencil and although I have managed to rub out the pencil marks, there's deep gouges in the paper and a scratch on the photos! NOT happy I tell you. Grrrrr. Anyway I will sit and think about it a bit and see if I can be bothered to add anything else to it :-) Maybe it needs a scrunched flower too! I like the lettering though ... and look at me being very thrifty carefully cutting out the outline of the S that was left on the sticker sheet as I'd used all the s's up!

Pretty pattern papers and you did lay them out well. Funny about Maddison doodling on the 2nd LO.L!
