Happy Monday! It’s pretty wet and slushy where I am today – hopefully it’s nicer where you are!

Today I'll be sharing a quick 8.5x11 layout I made about my apple picking trip a couple of months ago. At the orchards, there was a hedge maze that my friends and I had a lot of fun in. The events of the day may have included purposely getting ourselves lost and leaving people behind.... and of course, many selfies with 3+ people were taken. Because I like myself a challenge and what's a better time to take a selfie than in a winding maze?

This was a really simple layout to make, mostly using the Carta Bella Hello Again collection and My Mind’s Eye Cut & Paste.

If you ever want to get some layouts done quickly, you should definitely try scrapping 8.5x11! I love it for pictures that might be too small for a 12x12 or when I don’t think the event warrants a whole 12x12 page – not to say that this wasn’t a fun event, but since I’ve scrapped other pictures from that day, I’m okay doing a smaller supplementary layout. Hope that makes sense!

I love the floral stickers in the Hello Again collection… and also that washi that I got in a Freckled Fawn grab bag from their Black Friday sale.

The saying on this sticker is just PERFECT for my story, don’t you think??? And of course, I had to add a resin flower because I’ve been putting those on EVERY layout I make recently.

I’ve been using these thickers a lot, too, because they make such a big impact! As a side note, it is weirdly satisfying to be able to use a “Z” thicker, because those always seem to get left behind forever on letter sheets, am I right??

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my layout today :) Hope you have a great start to your week!! xx
