Good Things in 3's a Use Your Stuff Challenge

Hi you all :) Karrie is the hostess for this week's challenge over at Use Your Stuff Blog and she is challenging us to use "Good Things in 3's"
 - 3 photos (or 3 phrases if you are a cardmaker)
 - 3 colours (black and white - free)
 - 3 embellishments (use as many of each you want as long as you have 3 different types)
And have fun!
I created a layout for this challenge. I used 3 photos, the colors: Red, Green and Brown, the embellishments: red & green sequins, wood veneer hearts and lots of rubons.
What a fun challenge :) I had lots of fun putting together this layout. The pictures are from June 11, 2013 (this year the strawberries did produce to many and we ended up tilling the plants under and just starting another patch). I used the sketch over at Sketches in Thyme for my layout inspiration:
It was a great sketch to use for the photos and for this challenge :)
 I used papers and embellishments from my current counterfeit kit: Summer Daze for the layout. The Basic Grey rubons were featured in a previous kit and found it's way into the kit recently :)
 I was glad to have the I (heart) Summer collection in my kit this month, that is where the bingo card came from. Seasonal fruit we love to have strawberries in the house fresh but we love to freeze a bit of summer too :) I'm also using this layout from inspiration over at Whimsical Musings #88 Inspired by Seasonal Food (so many inspiring prompts over at Whimsical Musings :) 
My journaling card and my background paper came from the Garden Harvest recollections paper pad and the paper is all Kraft paper, perfect for the chosen brown color. Thank you for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing your creation for this fun challenge and keep checking back with Use Your Stuff blog this summer lots of fun challenges in the line up :)


  1. Nothing in the world better than fresh picked strawberries. One place I lived we had a small strawberry patch in the backyard and it was hard to not eat them all as I picked them.
    Your layout is great, love the angle of the pictures and the torn edges of the one paper.

  2. Cute page!! Love the pictures and the strawberry paper!!

  3. Oh I am loving this layout Tina! The papers are perfect and I love the sketch you chose. Love how you did the title, the hearts and the sequins. Heck I just love this whole layout! lol Fabulous pictures too. I so love fresh strawberries, but Dwayne must have taken our plants to heaven with him because I only got about 3 plants this year. He knew I was having problems picking last year because of my back locking up, so I guess he took them with him so I didn't have to worry about it. But I so missed having my strawberries this year. Hugs, Brenda
