Cocoa Daisy October Farmer's Market

Sharing my Cocoa Daisy layouts made with the latest October kit Farmer's Market. This first one is my favorite, and I wrote the journaling on the autumn card there on the side. I've since added the word "pull" in little letter stickers from the kit so that any one else would know that's where the journaling is. (I'm a little afraid it would lead to them pulling the rest of my layouts apart looking for hidden journaling.) This is made with mostly the main kit papers, and ribbon and a few added embellishments from apple pie, pumpkin soup and canned peaches add-ons.
This one is from the Canned peaches and pumpkin soup add-on. I love the paper and the autumn AC letter stickers.
This photo was one that I found at the end of some photos I took last year. I thought I scrapped them all, but then I saw this one. I love all the orange paper in this kit, had to use it. Combining more of all three add-ons with the paper in the main kit.
This one was made for a new magazine. I was asked to use my supplies to make a page about me and J. However, after I made the page I realized that the date to send was after we would leave town for vacation. So I had to pass on the opportunity to be published, but I still love the page. This pages uses the add-ons apple pie and canned peaches. I love how every single piece of every add-on goes so well with the main kit and vice versa.
Last page, I haven't scrapped any of the halloween photos from last year. What I think is so cool about this kit is that you can make it themed if you want, lots of pages about fall, halloween, school, the pumpkin patch, etc. Or you can just do your own thing. I will be using more of this kit soon though.
So that's it. Just got back from vacation a few days ago and dealing with the post-vacation laundry and such. I'm about to start my 4th week of exercising 6 days a week. It might sound crazy, but before I started all I could think of was how tired I was. I was so tired from working all day, had to make dinner, play cars and do bedtime, pay a bill or two, and fall into bed. How on earth was I going to keep scrapbooking except for the rare weekend hour here and there?
But I started doing it anyway, I'm up at 5am (if you follow me on twitter) working out. And a surprising thing happened. I have so much more energy now, so much. Now I try to start everyday with a work out so that I have the energy to do the things I want to do at the end of a day. It's still sometimes hard to wrap my brain around it, but it works. That's why I have so many layouts for this month, and I don't think I'm done yet. Nope, not with this kit. :) Happy weekend to you friends! Until tomorrow.
