When I first saw the Chickaniddy collection "Scrumptious" I knew I had to have the whole thing. Seriously, it captures how I feel about fall perfectly, cheerful colours, energetic images and best of all it covers all three months. This icon from the sticker sheet sums it up
and yes I do identify with dancing in the leaves. lol
I contacted the most amazing Cassie at Paper Issues to see if she was going to get it and she did, every last piece!!! Thanks Cassie. <3
When it arrived I went through the usual
First off, the odd paper that I just had to have,
September Skies Collection.
It reminds me of the Silver Birch from one of my childhood homes but I didn't use it for any of those pictures, instead I made this:
There are many colours of distress ink, two stencils, texture paste, an old die cut, of course my dancing girl and other embellishments from the Scrumptious collection on it. For the complete supply list click this link to my scrapbook.com gallery.
Most of the journalling is hidden but I talked about the diner across the street from this park. In my senior year, I occasionally cut the first class after lunch (art usually, rofl) so I would have time to walk downtown for the best fries and gravy anywhere. I ate them sitting on the amphitheatre steps overlooking the ruins. I was a good girl though, and took my sketch book. Unfortunately it's been lost so I can't show you my sketches of field stone walls, but trust me I did do some art during art class.
What's next on the plan, 30 days of thankfulness. Now before you think I've gone all mushy, I'm pretty sure there are 30 good things in my life that I should document. I've chosen to do it Project Life style, that is, grids on a cardstock base no special page protectors needed. I'll post the first page on day six or seven depending on which day ends up filling the page.
Thanks for stopping by,
See you soon
