Scrapbooking Thanksgiving: Grateful

Hello everyone!

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a week away. I love the Fall season, but it always seems to slip by so quickly and the next thing you know, Christmas carols are playing. 

Before we turn on the holiday music at our house, I wanted to pause for a moment and honor Thanksgiving. I have so much for which to be grateful and I took a few minutes to jot that down on this layout. 

I made this page with the November kit from My Creative Scrapbook. It featured a mix of lines from Echo Park Paper and Doodlebug Design. 

I included a few lines of journaling right under the photo, which I took of the table setting last year. 

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

The Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch

Good morning, everyone!

I have another Fall layout today from the November kit at My Creative Scrapbook. 

I frequently scrapbook holidays and events a year after they happen, e.g. I 'll scrap Christmas 2014 in December 2015. I like to scrapbook in the same season as the event, but since it takes me a bit to upload and edit photos and I work with designer deadlines, the holiday is often well past. So, I just hold the photos for next year. Thus, I made a layout of last year's pumpkin patch visit just last month, which you may remember. 

In a break with tradition, I'm scrapbooking this year's pumpkin patch visit this year! The colors and icons in the November MCS kit worked perfectly for a pumpkin patch, so I got her done. 

Here's a close-up of the page:

I have a simple style. I most often use a strong 4x6 photo as my focal point. I try to include a bit of journaling on my layouts too, but I didn't here. I handwrote the date (2015) and the title tells where we were. We go to this particular farm each year and other layouts about our visit to Hodges Farm tell a little more of the tradition. 

This November kit featured a mix of Echo Park Paper and Doodlebug Designs. I used primarily Echo Park here. 

This is the kit I used:

Beautiful Highland Haven: MCS Kit Reveal

Hello everyone. It's the 5th of the month and reveal day for My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club. 

Here, I used the kit to document a trip we took in late September to the Virginia Highlands. My parents bought a little piece of property there and it is a sweet spot! It's a great place to watch for deer or pick apples or just relax and soak in the views. 

The November Creative Kit is a fun Fall-themed kit, featuring Echo Park Paper and Doodlebug Designs

Here's a photo of the kit I used:
