Where the Green Grass Grows with Becky Fleck Sketch

I’m loving the Teresa Collins “Nine & Co” collection more and more. Not only is it great for the new homeowner pics of me and my hubby, but it works great for doggie layouts too! See!!

Miss Penny just chilling in the yard! So this layout took alot of turns. First, I wanted to use the Becky Fleck sketch that ACOT was posting for their weekly sketch challenge.

Then…saw the floral pattern paper I was using, pairing it with the orange cardstock and I decided to submit it to ACOT’s Supply List Challenge. Joannie listed 10 items and I chose orange (cardstock); torn edge (on pattern paper); floral pp; burlap (used as photo mat for 2nd photo); and sequins (scattered on floral paper).

By this time, all I needed was a title. And nothing fit. No pre-made title (tag, die cut, word art). Stamps weren’t going to work. I just couldn’t think. As I looked over ACOT challenges I remembered the Music Challenge! Barb wanted us to use a song that mentioned nature – from grass to flowers to trees to the sky. Something outdoorsy! First song that came to mind was Tim McGraw’s “Where the Green Grass Grows”. Ha! Perfect! So I looked thru my stash of alphas and decided to emphasize “green” in the title with some larger green alphas.

My complete list of items includes:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Pattern paper, sequins, chipboard, folder (opened up and used as a tag), button, die cuts: Teresa Collins
Burlap: DCWV
small alphas: Authentique
larger alphas: Webster’s pages
Paw Print sticker: Sticko
Ric Rac: Genevieve Gail

TFL! 🙂
