Hey there friends! It's the start of a new week and no need for the Monday blues! I have some beautiful Fall inspiration for you that will give you all the cozy feels of family time, falling leaves, the smell of wood burning and a chill in the air. This time it's a beautiful 12x12 page layout I made using the Simple Stories, Cozy Days Collection.
The warm fall colors and the leaf / floral designs are so pretty in this collection. The olive green patterned paper I used in the background is called Hello Autumn and I layered it with the cream leaf-patterned paper called Harvest Wishes. I love that this paper mimics Rylee's dress on a larger scale. I matted our sweet pics with the double sided paper called, Chilly Days (product links below).
Rylee and I were at a Fall Festival this day but this would make a beautiful layout for outdoor family photos, the kids playing in the leaves, a corn maze, a pumpkin patch or Thanksgiving day photos.
For the scalloped edge below, I used the same Hello Autumn paper and my EK Success punch. This is an older punch and I'm not sure if it's still available but any scalloped punch would give a similar effect. I included a link below for a We R Memory Keepers punch. It's not exactly the same but gives a lace effect that resembles mine. Really pretty!
I added a little handwritten note. Sometimes I think, I don't love my handwriting but then I remember how much I love seeing my mom's handwriting on things. So ... I tell myself to get over it, lol. One day, I hope my kids (or in this case, Rylee) might love to see that personal touch.
