Happy September my crafty friends!! This is Leslie from http://scrapnlifeaway.blogspot.com/ !! It’s hard to believe that it is already September, although the temperature outside does not reflect it!! Today is my day to share a creation with you! Thank you so much Sheila for giving me the opportunity to share on your great blog!!
The layout that I am sharing today is kind of a sneak peak! I am teaching a class in October at a retreat that will raise money for breast cancer! I will be teaching 2 double page layouts, which have a fall theme, and this is one of the double page layouts!! I had some pictures from my grandaughter’s first Halloween (she’s 2 now) and they were just perfect for this!!
The paper is from the Farmhouse fall collection. The pumpkins and vines are from the Happily Ever After cart. The leaves are from A Child’s Year cart. The metal Hope embellishment is from Tim Holtz. The twine and doiley are from my ever growing stash!!
All the paper strips have been distressed and chalked to provide that distressed feel. The pumpkins have been stamped with a texture stamp I borrowed. The leaves have been sprayed with olive vine glimmer mist and then chalked with a Mango Mai Tai powder puff.
And, what’s a layout without a few tags! I just had to add a tag with some cornstalks, the stamp is from CTMH Abundance Holiday collection and of course it has been sprayed and distressed! The journaling was cut at ¾ in. from the Plantin cart using the roly poly feature, and then I outlined the letters (just in random spots on the letters) with an orange colored pencil! The smaller tags were also sprayed with olive vine and then stamped with the same stamp that I used on the pumpkins! Then the finishing touch, I lightly painted all the pumpkins, leaves, small tags and letters with crackle accents!!
I hope that you enjoy this layout and that it inspires you to create a beautiful fall layout of your own!! Have a great day everybody!!
