Back 40ty Page for Scrap Fit challenge #54

Saw a challenge to use numbers on your layout at Scrap Fit the other day when I was out and about blog land and it coincided with this lovely idea neighbor Shirley gave me. She traced her leaf dish on a piece of scrap paper and cut it out! Lucky me got one to cut out too! And around the same time, I took this amazing photo of our back field all pretty with light going on towards evening.

Now, here in the states we refer to our property as the "Back 40ty" and I looked it up even to see if it was defined on Google. Here is what they said:

back' for'ty

remote, usually uncultivated acreage on a large piece of land, as on a farm or ranch

I chose to spell mine using numbers. Not to mention how much shorter it was that way too! Anyhow, outlined my numbers with white which I LOVE!!!

Threw a few more letter stickers straight from Glitz Designs on there too for good measure. My leaf cluster was pretty easy too, a little recycled netting from Shirley, a few leaves cut out on my Big Shot from the Tim Holtz tattered leaves die, and a flower from Helen.

Short and sweet!
