"My Favorite Memories" layout

Happy Friday dear friends. Today I'm sharing an Autumn themed page with you with two challenges as my inspiration. 

The first one is of this sketch from Stuck?! blog

and the second one is a stash challenge from Scrap our stash. The items on my page had to start with the following letters...
A- Autumn themed papers
L- Leaves
B- Border punch
U- Uniball white pen
M- Mist (Studio Calico)
S- Stamps (Gossamer Blue) 

I got some "new to me" papers from Carta Bella and I used that to document the two older kiddos' costumes in 2013. I can't believe it was that long ago. 

I had wanted to just play with some new buys so I grabbed all of the items for this page (not including the mist and pen) from my "new" bucket of supplies.

The sketch called for two square shaped photos but since I had both vertical and horizontal shaped images, I decided to put two photos in the center and then tuck the two other ones on both sides of the picture block.

I layered some flowers from Recollections onto a pre made Polaroid frame accent from a Pebbles line.

I have this small stamp set from Gossamer Blue and used two of them here. One as part of my title and the other to hand write my date. I heat embossed both with white powder to make them stand out against the dark color scheme of my papers.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic weekend.

Till next time,
Grace
