Favorite Fall Photos by Laura Vegas
I love fall colors, so this challenge was right up my alley. I choose a few favorite photos of me and my daughters, from a few years back, for this fall layout. I went through my stash of My Mind's Eye pattern papers, and choose papers my favorite fall colors. Brown, blue, yellow, orange, and cream. The burlap trim adds lots of texture to the layout, while the buttons add a nice homespun feel to it. I used the transparency photo frame, for a journaling block, and added my journaling strips to the inside. While I had all my papers and embellishments out, I whipped up a quick fall card, using the same elements as my layout (see post below).
Find Joy Every Day by Suzanne Sergi
Featured Collection: Mischievous
For this challenge, I decided to pull out some of these fall photos of my oldest daughter. Even though the Mischievous line is a Halloween theme collection, the color palette is perfect to document fall moments, too. I stayed pretty true to the sketch, but added an envelope in place of one of the photos. This envelope was perfect to tuck in my journaling. I love the houndstooth pattern, and punched a hole in the envelope, so this fun pattern peeked through. This helped balance the cluster of circles on the right side of the page. For the final fall detail, I added the beautiful fall bloom onto the envelope, and a bit of the gorgeous burlap ribbon My Mind's Eye added to their product line.
