Apple of my eye.

It was my turn to set my sketch challenge for August at MYSTICAL and here's my example.
I decided to use more papers from my DT pack. October Afternoon 'Cherry Hill'
Well Ive never been a fan of red and green together, it always looks too 'Christmasy' to me.
I avoid this colour combo altogether as a rule, even on Christmas LOs.
I don't have a colour phobia about any colours I love and use them all but I do have a problem with certain combos. Some just make me cringe and this one was no exception.
Its good to step out side the box some times and I couldn't resist that apple paper so I just kinda went for it.
It still screams 'Christmas' to me but its growing on me.
and what would a post be with out a close up,

or two............................

or three, especially when it includes one of my new LIL RED ROCKET 'Apple' buttons.


Here's the sketch I designed for the Challenge


and while I was up til the wee hours of the morning finishing this page I found these AWESOME stamps on Etsy and well, yes I couldn't resist and I bought them.
I know a scrappy pal who's gonna want to borrow these at our next crop and you know who YOU are. Hehehe.
Which reminds me can I just say how super excited I am to be catching up with all my scrappy buddies next week for RENEES birthday crop. YAY!
I hope my scrappy roll last til next Saturday.
OK thats all for now, til next time. TFL.
