I was thankful that I was able to participate this month. It got me into scrapping again. I love Autumn/harvest type kits. I have oodles of these on my hard drive and so when this kit came out it was instant love. I was particularly grateful that my daughter-in-law posted Pumpkin Patch pictures in time for me to use them. I didn't even tell her what kind of pictures I needed this month!
This first layout I used a photo mask from the Bookshelves kit. Masks help make layouts easy. I used an overlay with a paper clipped to it and changed the blend mode for the background paper. I love how it turned out. The 'watch' tag on the ribbon came from Time Of Your Life kit. I added paper with the photo info and a 'bubble' to it.
This next layout was also easy. The top paper has 2 overlays with different blending modes used. The ribbon element was premade. So easy to drop in there. The tab under the picture mat was a divider from the Bookshelves kit that I clipped a Homestead paper to. I then added the photo info to it. This little guy is always happy so I had to add the smiles tag.
For this third layout I used a template. Everything is from Homestead except the hedgehog is from Random Doorways, the dark brown ribbon flowers are from Cinema, the lighter brown ribbon flower is from Trees, and the brown grosgrain ribbon is from Gratitude.
