A Modern Homemaker

Hello friends!
Now that my wonderful month of guest designing is over for October Afternoon, I want to share all of my creations with you all here too!
This is a layout I created with their amazing Modern Homemaker collection.

When I received paper for this I didn't have any of the cute embellishments to go along with the lovely paper. I had fun taking stickers and rub ons from past October Afternoon collections as they all coordinate so well with each other. I can't wait though to get my hands on their beautiful retro housewife embellishments!
I know this will be a collection I will continue to use for years!


I was very lucky to have my Mom create lovely crocheted accessories for my layout! Including this rose and aqua doily. She also crocheted along the edge of my paper creating a lovely scalloped border!

I want to thank you for all of your kind words throughout the month of September regarding my guest design work. I appreciated all your sweet and thoughtful words more than you all know!

Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

Lindsey the crocheting your Mom did certainly set off your designs. Very clever and I love the contrasting color combination.

What a great idea to crochet along the paper's edge. I would never have thought of that and it looks absolutely perfect on the layout.
