Finally scrapping fall

Here is the page about our pumpkin hunting time. From the freeway we saw a pumpkin farm and naturally we stopped. After walking through table after table of pumpkins, we finally picked a couple good ones. We chose Luna and cinderella varieties. Both are baking pumpkins and allowed me to store up quart after quart of pumpkin puree.

The last of the Basic Grey Recess and Fancy Pants Summer's End was finally used up. Hope that you enjoy!

Love me some scraps

I love scraps! I hoard scraps! I cannot stand to throw away scraps! Luckily, I had some extra time and some creative energy. The extra embellishments did not hurt. Thus, I made a few thank you cards and a tag for fall. Something about tags always inspires me. Little bits of creative play.

Hope that you enjoy!

Last bit of Joshua Tree

Another one page layout on our visit with friends in the Joshua Tree National Park. They made us gourmet trail mix with wasabi peas, white cheddar cheez-its, and other goodies. We had a fun hike and some sunrise desert views. Great time.

Using more of the Fancy Pants Summer's End and some Basic Grey Recess. Hope that you enjoy!

Joshua Tree Visit

Back in the game! So I am working my way through the photos I have and am trying to get them scrapped. Here is a layout of our visit to Joshua Tree National Park. It was such a fun trip with great hiking and lovely friends.

Of course I pulled out my Apron Strings Smaller than a Breadbox kit and had a blast. This kit had a sampling of Fancy Pants Designs Summer's End. It was full of good colors and quality paper. Hope that you enjoy!

Another zoo visit

I know it totally looks like we have a zoo addiction and that is probably true. This is the Santa Barbara zoo and we went on a great day. Because it was Thanksgiving, they gave a few animals pumpkins. We watched otters play with their carved pumpkins for a good long while. It was a riot! They also gave the carnivores thawed turkeys. Watching the leopard try to figure out what kind of carcass he was eating was a blast. He kept licking it, nudging it almost afraid to bite it. So fun!

I used My Mind's Eye for this layout. There is a piece from their quite contrary line and one from their alphabet soup line. Hope that you enjoy!

Santa Barbara for thanksgiving

Definitely been awhile since I scrapped because they are my Thanksgiving photos. We decided to spend Thanksgiving in Santa Barbara because we had no other plans and we had never been. It was delightful! Santa Barbara is an incredibly beautiful city. We had dinner at the Four Seasons and did one wine tasting tour. We also spent a lot of time just exploring the city on foot and checking out the mission-style architecture.

Here is a layout of some of those photos. Hope that you enjoy!

Visiting my godbaby

While in Columbus I got to see Ian. Ian is my godbaby and at this time he is one and half years old. He is also totally adorable. He has the best grin and is so smart.

I pulled out some Five and Dime paper again because it is playful and homey. He is a natural poser and made the photos fantastic. This layout really stands on the merit of how cute this little guy is and how fun the paper is. Hope that you enjoy!
