I finally completed the scrapbook layout that I used for my October workshop.  I think this is the fastest I have ever completed a layout of an activity – done within a week of arriving home!
This layout uses the CTMH Pathfinding papers, and a sketch from the Make It From Your Heart pattern book – Volume 2, #3. 

While Phoenix doesn’t really offer a lot in the way of fall colors, it was still our fall getaway, so I added the cork and wooden pieces from the Pathfinding Assortment and some of the leftover leaves from the fall box project we did earlier in the month.   I also stamped some larger leaves and acorns to add interest to the top right corner.  

My Cricut is usually put to work for titles on my pages, but this time I decided to use a couple of my large alphabet sets instead – and then fussy-cut them before adding them to the page. 


I added flip-flaps to this layout.  One reason was to hide photos that weren’t the greatest (the only photos of my husband and me together were blurry, but I still wanted to use them) and to add more details.  The cork and wooden elements worked great as tabs for the flip-flaps.

I am entering this layout into the following challenges this week.  Hop over to these blogs to check out the other projects.
