What a Hoot!

Reminisce Papers make me happy! I don't know what it is about them, but they never disappoint me. I love their colors, textures and designs. In this 2-page spread starring my boy Zac, I used 3 different patterned papers and a bunch of coordinating stickers (owls, branch, leaves), tore some core'dination cardstock to give the tags a rustic outdoorsy look, and used a lot of 3D-Dots behind the little leave stickers to give the impression that they are falling.

As usual, I cut my title letters with my Cricut using my oh-so-favorite font cartridge "Alphalicious" - it's just SO playful and fun!

Because we don't have a REAL Autumn here in southwest Florida using these papers (which I knew I HAD to have!) created a small challenge. While they begged to have photos of piles of fallen leaves and vivid New England fall landscapes, I couldn't find any photos from back "home" that would work. The pictures I chose to use were taken at a local restaurant during a visit with family from New Hampshire (Love you Meghan and Rhonda!). We all went to see my boyfriend Tequila Tom perform that night and Zac was just being a goofball all night and making everyone laugh. Looking through my pile of unscrapped photos these just seemed perfect!

Thanks for looking and...

Happy crafting,
