Grow Garden Grow

Hello everyone! I'm back again with another layout for sweetsassydiva Design Team. This layout was completely inspired by one Jana Eubanks did a few months back. I have wanted to lift it ever since I saw it and when we had a challenge to use apples I decided now was my chance. I think it turned out adorable.
I couldn't resist adding a couple of mushrooms. I chose some fun polka dot and plaid patterned paper. It made some great looking mushrooms
I cut grow which was for another sign just by itself in a couple of different sizes and then chose the garden sign to go with it. It made a great title when put all together.
I chose the little girl gnome for my page as I thought she was too cute to resist.
The apple tree was cute but really came to life with a little inking and penwork. I'm going to add the date on the tag tied around the bag.
I inked the sun with a couple of different chalk inks and then did pen work with a brown marker. The clouds I inked with charcoal and then did my pen work. I pop dotted the top cloud up for dimension.
I used one of the signs as my journalling spot. Leaving the words off the shape made a great journalling block. Of course I Inked it all up and pen stitched around it.
