"Freshly Picked" by Polka Dot Whimsy...

The March add-on "Freshly Picked" from Polka Dot Whimsy included a mix of papers from Jillibean Soup and We R Memory Keepers. I instantly fell in love with the hearts on one of the Jillibean papers and knew I wanted to cut them out and line them up in a row. I had this photo of our family from a couple summer back that worked perfectly with this add-on kit. I remembered seeing fellow DT member Mel use fabric strips from a previous kit tied through a tag, so I copied that look here. I loved the simplicity of the heart sticker and my title on the kraft tag.
And hearts. I even added a few stitches to finish them off.
This add-on kit had a great family feel. Last fall we stopped off at Cracker Barrel for breakfast while on our way to the pumpkin patch/apple orchard. Instead of scrapping the photos with that event, I decided to make a whole layout just about Cracker Barrel. It's Tom's favorite restaurant and we end up eating there often. Any time I have ruled paper, I am inspired to scrap something that has a long story to tell. Lines help me tell that story neatly. ;)

Oh look...more hearts and stitching.
I have enough product from this kit to crank out another layout or two. There just aren't enough hours in the day... Right now we are on Spring Break from school and I am enjoying my time with my boys. I hope everyone has enough time in their day for some quality family time, too.

Happy scrappin'!

I know I've probably said this before, but I LOVE your handwriting!! Great LO's! My parents also love Cracker Barrel but we don't have any here. They are looking forward to being able to go there while visiting us in GA.
