Scrapbook Circle's October Kit--Fresh Picked

I know we are three days into October already! Yikes, this part of the year really does start to fly by. Between school, homework, studying, karate, soccer practices, soccer games and work I feel like we are all running on a treadmill every day. Our October/Fall break is only a couple of days so I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving for a much needed break (and visit from Nona!). But getting into October means a new Scrapbook Circle kit is live!

It is called Fresh Picked and it is absolutely FABULOUS. An amazing combination of Lily Bee, Crate Paper, Pink Paislee and Jillibean Soup. Add in a Studio Calico Scrap Pad, some Elle's Studio goodies, Pebbles stickers and Divine Twine and it can not be beat! Today on the Scrapbook Circle blog, I have a layout that is a lift of Scrapbook Circle subscriber, Andrea's layout. You can see Andrea's layout, my lift and fellow DT member Diana's lift HERE. Here is my layout:
I used three 3x11" strips of different patterned paper and stitched around each one to create my background.
The "FUN" sticker is from Pebbles, but the Enjoy Today is from the October Scrapbook Circle Printable that comes with the kit. This month I printed mine onto off white cardstock and love the slightly vintage look it gives.
One of my favorite parts of this kit are the Pink Paislee alphas. I had been wanting to use them since I saw them released at CHA and this was my first chance. They are fabulous. The font is SO fun and the size is perfect--slightly larger than a typical alphas but not too large. The little bow on the "y" matches my daughter's hair band (which by the way is one I made for her!). The journaling is on a piece of the Scrap Pad and layered on stitched cardstock.
If you haven't seen everything included I hope you will go check out Fresh Picked. It does have some beautiful Fall colors, but is a super versatile kit!
Well, I am off to run around for the rest of my Monday. Have a great week!
