A SEM Fall Challenge Layout

The challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles this month is to create a "Fall"-inspired project (and the scrap "twist" we were to incorporate was using paint on our project). 

I love Fall---it's definitely my favorite season (cooler temps--love early fall when it's in the 70s and 80s, the changing colors, getting pumpkins at the Patch), but my biggest Fall Blessing is my sweet girl, who was as a matter of fact, born today (October 2nd---Happy 7th Birthday Ellie!). 

These photos were taken by my friend Anissa a couple years ago, but they just scream "Fall" & I've never scrapped them for my own album (very similar ones...yes, but not these exact ones). I was a little scared to use paint on my project, so I took the easy way out and stamped my title with paint...I used clear acrylic stamps (from Close to My Heart) and acrylic paint. I like the effect...definitely a bit different than stamping with regular ink.

Supplies Used:
Green paper (My Minds Eye)
Orange paper (Jillibean Soup)
Yellow paper (American Crafts)
Stickers (Jillibean Soup)
Alpha Stamps (Close to My Heart)
Leaf Die Cut (K & Co.)
Red Hearts (Colorbok) 


  1. Happy Birthday Ellie! I didn't realize our daughter's were so close in age--My youngest turns seven on the 13th! ;)

    Love how this layout turned out! Such a great mix of papers and I love those wood buttons and how you popped up some of your words in the journaling! :)

  2. awww... Happy Birthday to Ellie for the 2nd.. Sorry I'm a couple days late now..
    This LO is gorgeous! I love it! Especially the journalling and the raised words! So clever!
    Thanks for the inspiration..

  3. what a sweet layout and those are great photos of Ellie!
