Thanksgiving is right around the corner and here I am with photos from 4 years ago gathering dust in my photo boxes! I know there's even older ones in other boxes also! LOL!! Well, it is fun to see all my kids and friends and family from a few years ago. The kids grow WAY too fast! I probably have a 1000 more photos to put in a scrapbook...Yikes!
The pad of paper I used is by DCWV and is so nice! I love the thick, glossy paper and the cute little sayings on some of the sheets. (It was on sale at Joann's for $9.99) The one I used in this layout the words: memories, fall, autumn & love. I cut a 2" border around 2 sides to adhere to the leafy page that is also sparkly. I then put a 8x8" piece of burnt orange in the middle so it would have so much going on. Especially in photos, a page with lots of patterns, cut-outs, photos and embellishments looks too crowded. I always like the cleaner, more simple look of the layout before the photos go on!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
|I popped up the Happy Thanksgiving with pop-dots - love the little cutie pie faces in the "a" and the "g" :~)|
|See the little smiley guy in the "a"? I think it would have looked a little better on darker shadow paper instead of the medium brown but no way to yank the green letters off!|
|I added an orange button and a little twine around Mr. Turkey - he looked like he needed a little something!|
