Frosted designs/ Paperhaus - The simple things

Well its coming very close to the end of the month now and I would really like to complete a few more challenges..... For this layout I decided to combine the July sketch from Paperhaus magazine (above) with a challenge over at Frosted Designs. I was planning to complete this months challenge with an 'outdoor' theme, but saw a blog hop which required the use of the quote ' Its the sweet, simple things in life which are the real ones after all' by LauraIngalls, and knew I had the perfect photos. These rather plain looking pictures have been in the too hard basket for some time, as they are not very good quality and the colours are odd but I thought I might finally use them, as I do want to remember the lovely experience of collecting eggs at Grandmas - and here was the perfect excuse.

I tried to capture the farm feel with nesting type material, lots of duck egg blue, round brads and feathers while keeping to the sketch. Im quite happy with the results!
