Johnny Appleseed

This layout has been finished for several days, I was just hoping for a nice enough day to photograph it.  It didn't happen.. LOL  This is for a challenge over at How Much is Too Much.. posted as the Johnny Appleseed Challenge.  The recipe called for the following:
Three apples -  one large chipboard apple by BoBunny, one apple on my chalkboard print paper in the upper right corner that is painted with Smooches, and the third printed on my G45 alphabet strip on the left upper corner.
Three Red
Three Yellow
Three Green, embelishments    This is where I was fuzzy and unclear.  So here's my rendering:

Red ribbon, Red chipboard "a", Red titling "THIRD"
Yellow chipboard "b" (used crackle paint), Yellow pencil, Yellow ruler paper
Green chipboard flourish, Green chipboard "c", altered Green metal .

I also used red, yellow and green papers just to be sure.
For my sketchy inspiration, I used a very loose interpretation of  Creative Scrappers sketch #175.  I turned it on side and used one picture instead of two.  If you haven't yet played over at Creative Scrappers or at How Much is Too Much go give 'em a whirl.  They're quite inspiring!

Fabulous layout Shaunery! I don't know how I missed it. So many great school related items and such a cute photo. Love the background and the strip of stamps.

We picked your layout as the winner of HMITM #181. Sorry about posting it a bit late!
