{Apples & Peaches} with the "Falloween" Classic Kit

Happy Monday!  It's Meridy here this morning and today I will be sharing a double page spread using the "Falloween" Classic Kit.  I love the bright colors in the Pebbles "Woodland Forest" line of papers that pop up in this month's kit.  I decided to match the colors in these papers to the photos of my family picking apples and peaches last fall.

I really wanted to use the cute gnome paper on a layout, so I decided to use it in moderation, and place it like a border across the top of both sides of the layout.

Next, I took the wooden apple and painted it red to help it blend in with my layout a little better.  I also fussy cut a few butterflies out of the B side of one of the "Woodland Forest" papers. I added one of the epoxy buttons and a few enamel dots to these items and created a little sprinkling of embellishments along side of the main photo on my layout.

Again, I had fun with the title of this layout.  I was all out of "A"s by now, so I turned a couple of "V"s upside down and I think it reads easily.  The subtitle "Fall is in the Air" is actually part of an Echo Park branding strip.  I think my favorite part of the layout is the little chipboard tree.  I added 3 enamel dots to represent apples in the tree.  So fun!!!

As for the right side of the layout, I used an 8x10 collage print to fit lots of photos.  I do this from time to time because I cannot narrow down my photos sometimes and I want to include them all. 

Since the collage takes center stage on this side of the layout, I just layered a few simple papers and created a small embellishment cluster with some enamel dots, epoxy buttons, and a fussy cut butterfly.  Now I feel like these photos shine, yet coordinate with the papers on the layout.

And that wraps it up for today's layout.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  See you soon!

Great layout! I struggle with using the cute themed papers, so I love the way you used the gnome paper as a border

Brenda, I find when I either fussy cut it, or use it in small amounts it seems easier to work with. I usually LOVE the cute patterns, but cannot use the sheet as a full piece. Thank you!!!
