Look at our Garden Grow ~~ Blog Hop

Well hello there hoppers!!!

So happy you hopped on over here to see what's up
in the Farmer's Market Challenge Hop over at CKCB.

If you started at the beginning, then you are reaching me from

The challenge this month was to create a page with Farmer's Market as an inspiration.
Right up my alley.
I LOVE to garden and the Beautiful Miss A's family owns a Produce Farm,
and sits on the board of our local Farmer's Market.
It is a big deal and important part of their lives,
and not to mention, I am a frequent flier of our local Farmer's Market =)

So I started with this adorable paper.
I mean please, how cute are these clouds?!!

Back in February, just before spine surgery, I did a little Two Peas retail
therapy =) and found this adorable stamp set aptly named "Farmer's Market".
It is the sweetest little stamp set complete with a rooster and these adorable
carrots.  I mean really, how fab are these?!  =)

So as y'all probably know by now, I love the details.  And these page is
ALL about them!  These carrots are stamped in black archival ink and then
cut out and sewn on as part of my Heidi Swapp banner.
Yep I misted and stamped and sewed this banner to life.
Love it!!

I also broke out the old embossing powder and a VERY old
Simon Says Cloud Stamp.  I LOVE IT!!  I embossed these
sweet little babes to sit right alongside the other clouds on this

Oh Maggie Holmes, how I love thee!!

This particular page I did using a sketch over at May Flaum's
Camp Scrap class.  And the journaling was done in strips,
so strips it is.  And yes, more delightful carrots =)

And the star of the show..... this boy.
This beautiful gbabe of ours,
LOVES to garden.
He will get out there and weed and dig,
and not even have to be asked to do so.
It's a beautiful thing!!!
He no longer digs up plants, but now he plants them.
Its a beautiful process.
He is a joy.

So I'm playing with camera angles and shots and traded my black background
for white.  I'm still really working it out, but pics are getting better.

And just for good measure.....
these carrots.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and hop on other to the lovely
And she what she's got cooking up over there.

Have a Blessed and Beautiful, Krafty Kind of Day ~~
