October Afternoon Midway BLOG HOP!

Midway Banner
Step right up October Afternoon fans! Today we are celebrating the latest line from OA, Midway! Shipping as we speak and I've even heard it's already in the hands of some retailers! Midway is a celebratory collection that honors the tradition of carnivals this time of the year!OA_MidwayBlogHopLO_AH

I created a layout for today's blog hop. This past summer we had an outdoor birthday party for my son, and one of the games was to throw water soaked sponges at my husband who was donning this very large stick-on mustache. The mustashe was such a hit with the kids, that they took it over and affectionately named it "Mustachio". This photo is from that day, with my daughter wearing Mustachio proudly.

I love all the fun pieces in this collection. I used one of the sticker hats and a sticker tie to dress up my daughter in this layout to give her the full "Mustachio" feel. I used a portion of the date washi tape to make a ribbon around the hat giving it just that extra flair.

I think what I love most about Midway are the colors. The vibrant and fresh tones coupled with the lighter greys and whites. It's just gorgeous!
