Good Monday morning! Its Labor Day and I hope everyone is off from work (with pay) and has plans to sit back relax and enjoy their day! As this post goes up at 8am, I will be just getting back from a 9 mile training run, then its off to my craft room to play, play and play some more!
Today over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration, we are starting September off with our Color Challenge. I have to say, that this is one of my favorite color combo challenges yet. It makes me think of Fall. Here is Virginia the last of weeks, we have begun to see some early Fall weather. We've been waking up to low cool 60 weather and nice evenings too. This has certainly not been a tradition August month for us.
For our color challenge, I decided to create a tradition scrapbook page. Yes, they are still around. I know a lot of people are headed in the direction of project life or digital scrapbooking, but not this old girl. I'm a true blue, old fashioned hands on scrapbooker. All ways have, all ways will be. For me, its the creating and the hands on that I love so much. I really get to dive in and use my stash of goodies! I used my banner framlet set in combo with the little letters set to create the "Fall" banner across the bottom of my page. I will use the left over letters to create another project with. This girl doesn't throw away very useful things....I recycle and reuse! (card to come later this week, don't forget to come back)
I used our colors of rich razzleberry, calypso coral and hello honey to stamp and cut out the leaves from the For All Things stamp set. I don't have pictures yet, but this will be a 1 of 2 page spread for our family Fall pictures. I used the On Film framelit set for the photo boxes in early espresso.
To decorate my background layer of sahara sand, I lightly inked up my chevron folder and stamped with it in different areas. I also used the acorn stamp and stamped with sahara sand too. The two leaf clusters are finished off with a gold basic metal button tied with some natural twine.
