carefree

This month from Handmade by Suzanne, my DT kit was full of October Afternoon - Sasparilla Collection.  This is based around the cute country western theme and consists of gorgeous pattern papers, fun chipboard pieces, tin pins, little flyer flags and label stickers.
Don't let the 'country and horse' theme put you off - there is plenty of potential for this collection.
I have my first page to share:


 This is a picture of my brother with his daughter on their property - I love the country feel of it and it was perfect for using with October Afternoon ☺
My base paper is Wagon Train  from the OA collection to which I've added in some details of texture with the mini brick CW template, texture paste and ink.
Here are some close-up's of the details:

 ... chipboard title from the chip'n stick ... some of the hemp twine ... Kaisercraft blooms ...
 ... typewriter journalling ... sticker letters OA Mini Market ...
... I've used some burlap in the background to give it a natural feel ... a chipboard fence lightly inked around the edges ... one of the tin pins ... some sweet little flyer flags which you can assemble from the pack ...

I hope you have been inspired by the sweet country feel to Sasparilla ☺ I can't wait to show you some more.  Suzanne has this collection in her online store: Handmade by Suzanne, as well as lots of other gorgeous products. Thanks so much for coming by.

Fab page and love the burlap and fence, matches beautifully with those pics. And the tuck in the paper at the side looks really good.
