Strawberry Field

I made this for the Stuck In You Sketch challenge.  My daughter and her boyfriend came down for a visit over Mothers Day weekend.  Our neighbor called us on Saturday morning and told us to get strawberries from his field. He had 5 rows and would never use them all.  We dressed and went over right away.   As we were picking, my daughter said "Does anyone else here the Beatles in their head?"  She really makes me laugh.  We got enough to send them home with two gallons, I canned 23 jars of strawberry jam and my husband even has a gallon and a half left to munch on.  I personally cannot eat them raw. I break out in hives.


I used the Echo Park's Graceful This and That paper that I downloaded and printed from JessicaSprague.com.  The strawberries are cut from Hello Kitty Greetings.  I hand cut off center circles to make the flowers and then wrapped ribbon under andaround them for extra pop.  Then I punched the Martha Stewart Lace Heart punch and put them on punched Circles as adornment down the border.  The flower with the strawberries was fussycut from the Echo Park paper, left over from the flowers and border.  I got the lace at Debs Lace and Trims online.  She has some real deals at 5 yards per and delivers really fast.
