Fresh and Fruity

Up for another challenge this month from the IIG Design Team?  You can check it out at!

Our challenge was to scrap using the color of fruit.

I love apples! Green, red and yellow!!! Cut them up, throw them in a salad or just eating with some caramel dip, I love them! Those juicy ones that leave the juice dripping down your chin when you take a bite are the best! So, I think it had to be a given when we were challenged to make a layout using the color of fruit, that my layout would be based upon my love of apples!

I kept this layout really simple! Really wanted to focus on the picture of my oldest son, Payton, and his new love of Farmall tractors. I used some Stampin' Up papers that I got from a girlfriend on the layout. I used my favorite Cricut cartridge, Don Juan, to cut the title and then I ran the farm letters through my Fiskars paper crimper to add a little extra texture to the page.

Red apples, yellow apples, green apples and of course the brown stem!

Hope you enjoy my take on the challenge and that you will come join in the challenge with us!
For now ~ Heather
