I found this image on Pinterest the other day and couldn't wait to get scrapping! I thought I'd share my inspiration with you as well!
Isn't this just fabulous?
I was instantly inspired by the stamping on the wooden pegs, I think those are so charming! Here's my take on the inspiration piece :
The first thing I did on this layout is the random rectangles machine stitching. There was no template or any guide at all. It was fun! Then, can I have a 'YAY!' for labels? :D I rounded up all my Daily Flash Double Take sticker sheets and stamped on the labels. I started with one and just keep on stamping until my sentences were complete. I didn't even pay too much attention on making them straight! I couldn't if I wanted to anyway as I was using my old wooden stamp set from studio G, just in case you're curious.
You can say the labels made the layout. The rest of it came together pretty fast. Some chipboard embellishments (arrows), Daily Flash alphabet stickers (xoxo), some stamping (once upon a time, ✭✭✭✭✭, date stamp) and a couple of pop drops and my layout is complete. I added the two bicycle wood veneer because well, marriage to me is a journey where two people try their best to balance each other. It's a ride for sure. :)
Alex played along too! And let me tell you that I squealed when I saw her layout for the first time!! It is so adorable! I plan to scraplift her when I have the time! :D

"The second I saw Sasha's inspiration piece, I thought of OA's awesome Daily Flash roller stamps. I pulled them out along with some white cardstock and different shades of ink and started to make these colorful strips. The little "my show" tidbit from the Saturday Mornings collection inspired me to scrap these photos of my boy. To finish of my quick and easy layout, I added some more bits and pieces not only from Saturday Mornings but also from DF Snapshots, DF All Boy and DF Girl Talk. A couple of chipboard and pop-drops stars and some mist splatters aaaaand it was done :-) I hope you like it!
Sasha, thank you so much for inspiring me to pull out those stamps and play! I had a blast making this one."
I hope we've managed to inspire you! Let me know if you play along, I'm @sashafarina on Instagram. I usually post sneaks and my layouts with #octoberafternoon in the description. You can also share your creations with us via the October Afternoon Flickr Gallery.
Have fun and happy scrapping!
