October Afternoon "Farmhouse"

I received my Handmade by Suzanne DT kit on Monday, when I was home from work with a nasty migraine!....so all I could do was drool over it all day!  It is such an amazing gorgeous kit full of so many beautiful things.....thank you Suzanne!!! 

So, needless to say, I have been itching to get scrapping with it, so I've managed to squeeze in a bit of scrapping each night after work & have finally finished a few layouts :)

My gorgeous kit contained papers, Alpha's & the Miscellany pack from the October Afternoon "Farmhouse"range ......some Manor House flowers, Prima Flowers, Zva pearl flourish and some gorgeous ribbons & trims  <3



So, without further ado....here is the first layout I have created using my kit.....


My base is Coredinations CS (available at HBS here).  The CB butterfly, grey button  & yellow ticket are from the Farmhouse Miscellany pack, which is full of so many fabulous things!...and the large letter N in my title from the Farmhouse Found alpha sticker sheet.  The golden coloured leaves were cut using my Cheery Lynn "Olive Branches" die ...and my journal strips were cut from the Manor House flowers packaging :)

October Afternoon "Farmhouse" papers used:  Attic Trunk,  Clothesline,  Faded Wallpaper  & Gravel Road.....all available here.  I have added a few pieces from my own stash....buttons, Kaisercraft paper bloom, punched butterfly & October Afternoon Mini Market alpha stickers.


Now for a few close ups....

 I have glimmermisted one of my Manor House flowers to give it a lovely soft brown tone to blend in with the rest of the LO, and I also made the bluey/grey flower out of a piece of ruffled trim from my kit.






Don't forget about this months fantastic sketch at Handmade by Suzanne....you can see the DT's amazing interpretations of the sketch HERE in the January sketch folder of the gallery.

Thanks for dropping by & TFL.  xx
I will be back shortly with my 2nd layout......
