Missing the annual family apple picking...


Each year since I was in 5th or 6th grade, my family has taken the 1 1/2-hour trek from Orange County to Oak Glen, Calif., each Fall to pick apples, pumpkins and raspberries. This year, since we are in Pensacola, we'll miss the annual trip, a big bummer since my nephew, Brandon is a toddler and that is a fun age for the day-long excursion. So, to remind me of the fun we had in past years, I created this acrylic table top decor to put on my dining room table. It's created from 6 x 6 and 6 x 8 acrylic panels, stamped with StazOn ink and Stickled for some eye-catching glimmer. I used small chipboard squares from Bazzill Basics to add dimension to the photos. I used paper scraps from previous projects, and half-used rub-on numbers and alpha stickers. I love it when I can use my stash! But the best part: It took me only an hour to create it, from start to finish!

As a reminder, the K2R sale ends tomorrow. A large selection of items are 25 percent off, plus if you use the promo code save10, you can save an additional 10 percent off your entire order. Tomorrow afternoon, once my kids get home from school, I will draw names for the CE Project RAK, message board RAK and more. Be sure to post for your chance to win!

Wow! I love this! I really want to take Brett (perfect age at 6) and my husband to Oak Glen and do that apple picking! Your project is so beautiful and if we go this is such an awesome idea! Can't wait to see you in October!
