Smash Up Challenge: Apple Home Decor by Courtney

Courtney Lee from Court's Crafts here! I was SOOOO inspired by Amanda's old framed lemon. You can see the original post HERE. Not only is this post so sweet, but she is too. There is nothing like being inspired by someone who you have had the honor to meet, be on a DT with, and is so lovely in person too. Her project was inspired by a classic Melinda Spinks cluster HERE. So it's a double inspired by project. :)

Here is her project: 

My color is LIMEADE!!! So I made a fall home decor piece just like hers! 

Here it is in the doodlebug shadow box. Did you know they made AWESOME shadow boxes in 8x8 and 12x12? I think I have 6 around the house. I have tried a lot of shadow boxes and these are by far my favorite.

I took it out of the box to show it to you. There are a LOT of products on this project. I took everything limeade and just went a little nuts - and loved it.

I had some fun stitching on the stem and leaf. I just "free styled" this and I love the texture it brought!

I really tried to keep my embellishments fall themed. It was hard. I wanted to add the most random things on there. But then I thought it would be fun to make this one of three that could stack on top of each other. I might just re-create her lemon just like she did and maybe do a tomato on the bottom! Wouldn't that be darling!?

I love the way doodle-pops add so much dimension. I started with the apple. I have been hoarding it for a while and thought the apple in an apple was kind of a cute idea and a fun way to add a pop of color. The school supplies came next and that little owl - I just love his fat head!!!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are enjoying our fun smash up challenge of casing a DT member's project before us AND having a color assigned! It was such a fun challenge for me! You should join along too! :) We LOVE to see your creations!
