Perfect Peaches

I was once again perusing the challenges over at StampTV. I focused on challenging myself to finish at least one scrapbook LO. I am so happy I looked, because the 7/14 sketch challenge is great!
With the leaves on top and grass beneath I wanted to recreate the photos from our visit to the peach orchard last year. The leaves were double stamped in Old Olive and then I also fussy cut some out of Old Olive and layered them on. I sponged the Apricot Appeal paper and buttons with Rose Red ink to make each look more like a peach. The grass on the bottom is actually a pine needle stamp.

Details: Everything is SU - Simply Seasonal (grass) and Best Blossoms (leaves) stamp sets {branch is from a really old set :>) }, Old Olive and Rose Red Ink, Old Olive, last year's green in color and Apricot Appeal CS, Apricot Appeal buttons, and the title and phrase are typed in Word with the SU Scrap Baby font.

Enjoy picking your own peaches this year - we will be back to the orchard this year!

Smiles, Julie

  2. I love this page and your blog. Thank you for sharing your beautiful work.

  3. What a great page! Love how you sponged the journaling to look like a peach ;o)

  4. Lovely page! I wish we could pick our own peaches. We pay a fortune for them at the Farmer's Market but they are perfect and delicious. We have a blueberry farm walking distance from our house but it's still not open yet this year.

  5. Absolutely adorable. I love all your branches and buttons! Too cute!!!
