Hoedown '07

Every fall, my home church Locust Grove has their annual Hoedown at the Fanning Farm. It's quite an event. Everyone brings a dish to share and there's lots of hot chocolate & hot cider to pass around. They also do hayrides around the farm to enterain all the kiddos!
I had the idea for this layout nearly a year ago. I found the straw background paper on a random trip to Hobby Lobby & bought it hoping I could use it for this layout one day. On that same trip I found the Jolee's Boutique Hayride embellishment stickers but I decided to wait on purchasing them. I'm glad I did because I ended up finding them at half price on Ebay. Creating this page was simple. I cut out a long rectangular strip of orange cardstock, then a smaller green one, and then an even smaller brown one. I layered them and gluded them together. I bordered the pictures with a redish-orange cardstock and glued them in place. I then placed the 3D Jolee's stickers around the page. I used my Cricut to cut out the title. I cut out the title first in brown using the shadow effect. Then cut the title out again in the redish-orange paper in non-shadow font. I then glued them together creating a layered effect for the title.
