Summer of Peach Love



Hi!  Hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend.  Welcome to everyone from Two Peas Labor Day Scrap and Yap thread!  I finished this layout Saturday about our current obsession with fruit.

Sometimes I think we have been drowning in fruit this summer.  This is a good thing as I started last April having smoothies for breakfast each day.  I have lowered my cholesterol nearly 30 points with my new diet!  So fruit and vegetables are seen far more in my house these days.  Right now the counter is covered in peaches.  I took these photos from an earlier batch.

Journaling:


Lenny loves peaches.  I never knew quite how much until this summer.  My parents gave him the name of a local peach grower who shares his philosophy that no peach should be picked before its time.  Soon Lenny was not only bringing home bushels for us but carting them to friends and customers, too.  The peaches got rave reviews by everyone.  Every day I’ve enjoyed fresh peach smoothies.  I’ve also made pies and even a peach and sour cream ice cream that doesn’t require an ice cream freezer for my card class.  Lenny says that putting peaches in a pie is a waste but I know none of that pie goes to waste, well maybe to a different kind of waist.


For the layout, I used some Crate Paper Pretty Party collection and some older October Afternoon. I had the matching stamp for one of the OA papers so I stamped an image on the background paper to fill out the layout some.


The lettering is Two Peas Mistable Thickers.  In this week's Glitter Girl segment, she challenged us to try the ombre trend.  First I misted all the letters in yellow and then went over part of them in a peach color mist.  I used my chalks to add the rest of the color. Chalk works great on canvas.


Thanks for stopping by!
