BBTB2 - Apple of My Eye

Happy Monday!

Welcome to another challenge over at BBTB2!
I am hosting the challenge this week and decided
to channel my love of the Harvest and especially the
Apple Harvest on my project.
There are so many fun apple cuts with the Cricut,
 I am sure you will be able to create something amazing!

I decided to use the fabulous apple from Doodlecharms -
it's seriously perfect.
I used up some more scraps from my stash
and pulled out some fun red patterned papers.
Added a few green gems for embellishment and
the sentiment is from Craftin' Desert Divas.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 this week!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

My Project:
I decided to make a sign that kids can hold up
on the first day of school so parents can take their pictures.
Isn't your Instagram feed inundated with those like mine is?!?!
I am one of those parents so I am just as guilty :)

Anyway, I used Locker Talk for the cut,
DCWV Grade School paper for the background,
and some textured red cardstock for the base.
I used some foam tape to pop up the image.

I love the bold colors and fun theme for this sign,
so perfect for those school shots ;)

I hope you will join us over at Cut It Up for our challenge.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
