A Little Bit of Dewberry Farm Life

Have you seen the October Birds of a Feather kit? It is definitely my FAVORITE BOAF kit so far...I just love the rich colors, the hints at fall and most of all, it's all so inspiring that my projects almost come together on their own.

These photos were taken on our annual trip (last year) to our local pumpkin patch, Dewberry Farm. They have turned it into what I like to call an "ag-venture" park, with hay rides, pig races, animals of all sorts, corn maze and sooo much more. I can't wait to go to the farm this year!

The girls just love to climb on the tractors. They each pretend they are driving and plowing the fields.

Supplies from Birds of a Feather October 2011 Kit: Crate Paper Farm House - Cross stitch, apple pie, handpicked and Farmer's Market Papers; Adhesive Backed Chipboard Stickers; Jillibean Soup Rockin' Red Corrugated Alphabets, soup labels - apple cheddar soup; American Crafts Elements pearl brads; My Little Show Box mini alpha stickers in Pearl.

My 2nd layout today just fell into place. The quilt-like paper just needed to dominate the page (after my photo of course). It's a little less than 1/2 the page. I stitched the brown lines between the squares with brown thread and then I fussy cut some of the orange paper and stitched it on the orange spots with orange thread. Lastly, I made some brads out of some scraps using my Imaginisce i-top tool. The rest of it came together using punches, chipboard and paper strips.

Thanks for stopping by.  Head over to Birds of a Feather to see more great projects using this kit.

Here's a sneak of the kit...full of Crate Paper Farmhouse, Fancy Pants Off to School, Jillibean Soup, Maya Road and so much more....
