Finally ! Some scrapping...

Well, it's supposed to be SPRING, but with the crazy weather around the country lately, who would know ?
Play in the Leaves is a tribute to the last days of Autumn, using some fabbo 2Crafty Sweet Pea Stalks, and the gorgeous Seasons range from Crate Paper. I won the Crate Paper Seasons Collection at the LSBS Retreat, so it was nice to put the prize to good use !

The Sweet Pea Stalks have been simply treated with Versa Colour Ink in Turquoise, and then a fine misting with Tattered Angels Dragonfly Glimmermist. What I wanted to highlight today, was how well you can incorporate 2Crafty Chipboard into layers of diecuts. The Sweet Pea Stalks go very nicely with the variety of diecut flowers from the Crate Paper.

Here are some detail shots. I think the colours in this collection are perfect for autumn layouts, and I was pleased I challenged myself to use such a busy background paper.

Although you can't see them very well, Caden actually has thrown some leaves in the air. This was the best shot I could get with him looking "normal" and not having a hand over his face or something like that, AND with some leaves in the air !
