I turn my horses out onto my back yard about once a week to help mow the grass - or at least I did earlier this year before the drought took all the grass and made mowing a chore that doesn't have to be done anymore. Right to left that's Java, Charlie, Chantez, Friday, and Dolce back behind at the water trough.
This is my entry for the following
#1. Round Robin Week 2. I lifted madmatter's Sunshine Day, which you can see here
I had to alter her layout a bit - I didn't have three pictures of a single theme to work from so I switched up to a one photo. I fussy cut one of the tulips and let their stems function as the strips across the bottom, changed up the punches and added a touch or two of my own in the rosebuds and lace.
#2. ABC Challenge JKL - Jute (I used almost three yards of it in the stitchwork around the edges). Kiwi (The base of my patterned paper is the right color. Even though I don't usually work in pink, this was the paper I had, so this was the paper I used.) Lace (There is a little over 1 foot of lace tucked into the border at the top.)
#3. Faithbook Friends - This month's theme was Gentleness. I hadn't really planned to scrap this photo, but the picture of my ponies grazing on the yard in the morning sun is such a quiet and peaceful image, I kept coming back to it and finally realized that it just FELT right. I love how it worked with this paper.
#4. Use Your Supplies Week 4, Stickers & Stitching - Three little sticker butterflies from my stash of WAY back FOREVER ago when I first started scrapping and there are ... I don't know how many ... jute stitches around the border.
