Apple Of My Eye

For the last couple of years I have had the PRIVILEGE of accompanying my nephew on his yearly school trip to Thompson's Orchards...Sadly, this September marked our last Apple Orchard Trip together {well, school trip, anyway}...
'An Apple A Day'
Zood LOVES picking Apples - in fact, this year he asked dear 'Grandma' Thompson if he could have a job - to which she replied - 'Come back in about 10 years'! I think the reason he LOVES it so much is that he gets to eat as many apples as he likes - and the kid LOVES to eat!
 For this layout I wanted to stick with RED - so I doubled up on two different shades of cardstock for the main backer.  Then I added some {Christmas - shh!} patterned paper and a couple of layers of 'tags'.  The title and date were PRESSED out on my Dymo Caption Maker {the best SCRAPPY TOOL I have bought this year!!!}  I added a Kraft Envelope {left-hand side behind veneer arrow} that holds all of the extra pictures of the day!

Every year the JK&SK class {about 60 kids} take this trip - the Thompson's are SO GREAT - the kids get a bag of apples to take home, a HUGE basket of apples to take to class to make applesauce with, a few pumpkins, gourds and ears of corn, a wooden turkey tail and head kit to paint and put in their pumpkins, apple cider and timbits {donut holes}, PLUS the Thompson's bring in apples for the ENTIRE SCHOOL to enjoy throughout the school year! AMAZING!

Happy Scrapping and HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my US Neighbours!!!
