Jillibean Soup | Strawberry...

Hello Friends.  Today I have a double spread layout to share.  Yep. You read that correctly.. A DOUBLE!!!

 
"Pick Your Own Strawberry"

products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Jillibean Soup; alpha - Jillibean Soup; other - Jillibean Soup: soup labels, banner bites, pea pod parts; pearls, mist, toothpicks; tools - typewriter.

Just recently we took the kids to a local strawberry farm.  These farms are so close to us, I really don't know why we haven't been there before!  It's been on our list of things to do for sometime and now we can tick it off.  No doubt, we will be going back at least a few more times before the season ends. 

The kids were shown the correct way to pick the fruit and they learnt quite a lot about growing strawberries from our charming host, Percy.  There are signs all over the farm telling you not to eat the strawberries as you pick them.  They really need to be washed first.  *grin*  But Percy kept picking them and telling us to try them.  He had a real soft spot for the kids.  And as he was the boss... well, we weren't going to get in trouble!  Besides he was eating them just as much as the kids were! *grin*


 

I've teamed these photos up with the gorgeous Jillibean Soup: Coconut Lime collection and I've done quite a bit of fussy cutting.



I actually quite enjoyed creating this double page spread.  And it surprised me too! LOL!  Maybe I just needed the right collection of photos to scrap.  *grin* Thanks for visiting..x

There is so much to love about this!! Firstly I love doubles (rarely do them myself) and those papers just could not have matched any better!! And strawberry picking sounds like so much fun!
