Apple a Day {HMITM + WIP}

Making my page for our current challenge at How Much is Too Much coincided with work on my October Work in Progress kit, and when I opened the box, I discovered that the kit would be perfect for Janet's Johnny Appleseed challenge:

Our challenge this time is going to do a layout using apples in it. So it can be a recipe page, layout about fall or anything that uses apples. Since apples come in three colors I want the colors of the layout to have red, yellow and green in them.
3 apples

3 red,
3 yellow, and
3 green embellishments - ( buttons, brads, twine)

I'm a teacher, so I get a school portrait taken every year, and I never know what to do with them. I decided this challenge was the perfect opportunity to document my apple-a-day ritual, which I plan to add to my weight-loss album.

My hidden journaling reads: During the school year, I eat an apple a day. Every day, I bring an apple in my lunch. My favorite is apple is the honeycrisp. My apple-a-day habit started when I began Weight Watchers. I bring a knife and cut my apple into small slices so I can take a long time eating it. I usually bring a frozen Weight Watchers Smart One or a Lean Cuisine, which gets eaten pretty fast, and then I cut my apple and enjoy it for the rest of my lunch time. (School portrait - Fall 2011)

Here are a few details. I cut the flower and punched the apple image out of some Crate Paper papers from the kit. The little typewriter was from a Jillibean Soup paper. I added that green apple from an old October Afternoon paper.

I used the space in between the apple images on that pattern above to cut out the banner shapes. The border sticker came in the kit. It's also by Crate Paper.

Here's a coseup of my hidden jouranling card. I added a border sticker and a paper clip for some of my red accents to meet the challenge.

These nifty fruit labels came from a Crate Paper paper--there's a whole sheet of them, and I just love this ruler paper, also by Crate Paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and reading about my page!
