Crate Paper Farmhouse......

I have been so good these past several months when it comes to buying scrapbook goodies--I have really been being honest with myself and only getting what I will use.  Usually I would see a new line and have to have everything.  This meant that my stash was borderline out of control-LOL. 

When I took these next photos I knew I wanted to use Crate Paper's Farmhouse collection--so I carefully went through the line and bought just what I thought I would use.  AND after having done two layouts I am down to scraps which is GREAT!  I have conquered these papers and can move on :-).  (My husband is seriously grateful for these turn of events--he was quite taken away with how much I had been getting---not upset, but not quite understanding why I had to have so much!) 

So here is the first lo:

I used the 10/27 sketch from Sketchy Thursdays for this one.  I ended up making it a three photo lo which meant moving everything to the side to accomodate.  I had recently been seeing lo's where scrappers were layering their banners, so I tried it out.  And I added lots of twine because that is my thing :-). 

And here is the second lo:

I had lots of fun layering paper for this one!  I really thought that the papers went really well with the pic.  I just love fall flowers.....

Well thanks for looking!  Have a great rest of the week!
