I am scrapping a photo of me and my best friend (husband) taken last Thanksgiving. I have been wanting to scrap this picture for awhile, but could never find the right “stuff” to go with it. I was looking through my 12X12 paper pads and came across a fall themed paper pad. That pad in combination with this cut file, sparked inspiration for scrapping this particular photo.
I realized when going through my stash, that I don’t have a lot of autum-themed scrappy embellishments, so I decided fussy cutting lots of the cute woodland animals, florals and other icons in the paper pad would have to suffice. Fussy cutting pattern paper is always a great option and money saver! Plus, I find it very relaxing! 🙂
I used the fall leaf backgroud cut file as the basis for my woodland/fall scene. I layered lots of cute elements horizontally across the center of the page.
I used the fussy-cut Pumpkin that says “Thankful for You” as my title piece. My last step in finishing a layout is always adding the smallest elements to fill in a blank space or to create balance in the design. The tiny little sunflowers, was my last step for this layout.
I must say, this is my favorite layout I have created in a while. It makes me happy just looking at it! I think that is how we should all feel, when we finish a page… happy and thankful for such a wonderful and enjoyable hobby!
