Well, let's just say I'm happy it's Friday! Are you?
How about a layout to celebrate? Before you take a peek, remember this: when my mom and I happen to meet someone for the first time, we often get a bit of a double take. Wanna know why? Ok, here you go:
Ok, so the photo isn't the best -- it's an old one of my mom in her early or mid-twenties, and it definitely has that 70s glow to it -- but yeah, we kind of look alike ;) Hence the title of my layout, which is the first I've done involving a rebus, as far as I can tell!
I am definitely one apple that's pretty dang close to the tree. I used some of my favorite bits from this month's Counterfeit Kit here, including that tree-print and apple-print paper (both Studio Calico), and some fairly new Thickers, which came nekkid but which I inked up a bit for contrast. I also finally made myself use a Kaisercraft doily that I've been hoarding :)
The tree is paper-pieced (drew the tree top freehand, even), and both it and the apple in the title have a little extra flair:
Crackle Accents to the rescue. I'd forgotten my bottle in a drawer somewhere, and now I remember how much I love it!
So, I'm totally turning into a Counterfeit Kit Challenge nerd -- this month, I printed out my kit photos (see link above), and I've been checking off items as I use them! NERD! But, between this and a couple more projects you've yet to see, I have used and/or used up about 85% of the items in the kit. Score!
I'll be back for the Counterfeit blog hop on the 28th -- the challenge was to scraplift myself...which I do all the time anyway, so that wasn't too hard.
Hope you have a great weekend, and I'll blog at you soon!
