The Apple Doesn't Fall Far


How do you like them apples? We have apples that grow in our yard -- not just plain old crab apples, but real apples...We let the deer eat the ones that fall, and this past weekend my son took a bite from a good one way up high, and said it was sweet.

So when BBTB2 gave a new challenge: anything fall, I was inspired by Sharon's Lay Out. I knew that I wanted to cut an oversized tree like she did, but finding the right tree -- with leaves -- was a challenge. Then while searching for tree images, I came across a Country Life apple tree -- and then frantically dug up one of my favorite apple pictures: two generations of men in our family. So this is a lay out that I made for my mother in law, featuring her sons and grandsons. Not sure if it is frame-worthy, or if it should be slipped into a scrapbook that I made for her a while back.


The other carts that I used were Freshly Picked ("apple" and the apple on the ground) and Speaking of Fall. Yes that cart is tough, that is why the title is large! I do wish that I used letter stickers instead of handwriting some of the title. I planned to do that -- use stickers -- and just forgot. I think I got too excited that project was nearly finished.
