Simply The Best

Hello on this fine Sunday, bit chilly last night and this morning but to warm up today to above freezing temps. I got a layout done on Friday that was a 24 hour challenge over at Scrappin N Chattin yahoo group. We pick out 3 collections and someone else playing along chooses the collection for you to use and the sketch. This is what I created:
What was chose was the Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection and Sketch 2. I chose squared edges for the 2 circles but kept to the sketch pretty good. I had to piece together the Notebook paper background to have a full sheet, worked out okay.
 I added the Autumn bingo card for one of the circles and lots of pattern paper layering :) Zachary enjoying his first jumping in the leaves experience! Which to me growing up was Simply the Best entertainment while raking the leaves. So glad that he got to enjoy this experience.
 I cut down one of the cutout cards for the title and the journaling. Did some detail cutting to get the Simply the Best ribbon for an embellishment pooped up on foam tape. I used the stickers from the collection to put in the date
Added more stickers here for the journaling spots, love the variety of word phrases that Simple Stories comes out with their collections. This kit has been in my Counterfeit Kit a few months now and really trying to get it cleaned up while were in the fall season here in PA. Thanks for stopping by and seeing my little corner of the world. Enjoy your day and stop back tomorrow for a fun Counterfeit Kit Challenge November Blog Hop.


  1. We warmed up nicely today too Tina, we got in the 60's and tomorrow is supposed to be in the 70's. Say what?!! Oh then snow on Wednesday, crazy weather! But on the good side, we aren't living in Buffalo. Man I wouldn't want 6 feet of snow in just a couple of days! Your layout is adorable Tina! I love the fun papers you used and the fun fall sentiments on it. Your grandson is simply adorable, doesn't get any cuter than him! Hugs, Brenda
