I love October Afternoon papers. They have such a nice vintage feel to them and the papers are a great weight. Even though I have enough patterned paper to keep me scrapping forever I couldn't resist adding a sheet of Sugar Stix from the Cakewalk collection into my latest basket from A Trip Down Memory Lane (okay and some letter stickers to go with it).
I had in mind that I wanted to scrap a photo I'd recently found which was taken at my 8th Birthday Party. I wanted to use the star part of the paper but I didn't want to use the whole sheet of the paper and that was really all I knew I wanted to do with it. So it sat like this on my desk for a few days:
It was just too square and I didn't really know what I was going to do with it. Luckily Ann Freeman came to my rescue with this post on the ATDML blog which I spotted as I was uploading my final cyber crop projects. I love what she had done with the paper and decided that was what I was going to do with my sheet. I've added some other October Afternoon chipboard bits which I had left from another project and I'm much happier with the page now.
Thanks Ann for the inspiration.
