Berry Pickin

So... I was so excited to get my new kit from Paper Poppy Kit Co. last week!! Thanks Beatriz for sharing this great little kit with us!! I loved the papers and all the embellies that came with it, but I must admit, these are papers I would not normally pick out when in a scrapbooking store... but I think that is why I liked it so much!!

I have had pictures I wanted to scrap but had not gotten to it... probably because I never had the right papers... but these are perfect!! These pictures are of my daughter and I with her cousins out raspberry pickin' last summer!! We had soooo much fun and picked soooo many raspberries that I didn't know what to do with all of them.!!! After eating several, and making cobblers, my sister, my mom and I decided to make raspberry jam!! YUMM!! And it actually tasted great!! I used the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays for this LO.

I actually stuck to it pretty well this time!! There is always a first time for everything!! lol!!

Here are a few more close ups!

Supplies used:
Most Papers and embellies came from the Paper Poppy Kit
The only supplies I added were some cardstock, the white lace and a few brads!
Cricut: Graphically Speaking, Give a Hoot

I have another LO using these same papers that I will be posting tomorrow! Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and take a peek... and as always, thank you so much for your kind words you leave me each time you visit!! It totally makes my day!! Barb :)

Hiya Sweets!
Man I am going to say this alot but I haven't been by many blogs in the last week while I watch a bit of tv before bed, here I am!

The last couple pages are great! I love the transparency one a ton with the great embellishing and this one with the cute title and the simple and sweet design and great photos!

So what book did you get? I think I may feel inspired to pull out something to read..(do I have time to read? other then kid books each night? LOL!)

when is your vacation? for Easter?

Barb, this is fabulous! You should sent it to Aphra, she will love it. I feel the same way about the kit, I would have never pick out those papers but that is why I joined. I want to be challenged and think outside the box. This is the first time ever I purchase one and I am glad I did because I am loving it. Can't wait for the next one. Again, this page is fabulous, love it all. Happy Tuesday!
