I’m not a big seasonal scrapbooker, but I do enjoy creating the occasional seasonal page. This year I thought it would be fun to collect a few images to show what fall is like in Florida.
As you can imagine, the changes are subtle.
The closest thing we have to seasonal color is when the rain trees bloom. Around the end of September the rain trees get these yellow blossoms and a few weeks later, they turn into peachy orange blooms. They generally bloom through Thanksgiving.
For this page, I used Harvest Lane from Simple Stories. I still had some of this collection left over from last year. I love it just as much today as I did when I first purchased it. For this page, I wanted to keep the focus right in the middle. I started off with two distressed strips of pattern paper stitched to the top and the bottom of the page.
I lined up my photos, another pattern paper strip and the journaling block right in the center. I had a package of the Capture Photo Frames and used one to highlight the photo of my toes. I cut one of the photo slides in half and used the two pieces as accents around the photos on the top and the journaling block on the bottom.
I used more of my Cocoa Daisy kit embellishments. The Fancy Pants acrylic flowers came in my October kit and the pretty fuzzy twine came in the September kit. I wrapped the twine around each of the acetate frames.
For a little added interest, I created two embellishment clusters on the top and bottom of the layout. I added a few strips of pattern paper, scalloped circles, light gold paint splatters, and more of the Into the Woods pack of sequins from Lawn Fawn.
I’m really happy with how quickly this one came together. I printed my photos and gathered supplies over the weekend but worked on the page on two different nights after I got home from work. I wish that I had the creative energy in the evenings to do more than that, but I’ll take this for now.
And that will probably get the fall scrapbooking out of my system until next year!
Thanks for stopping by today.
