Today I wanted to make sure to have plenty of journaling space on the layout. I thought it would be nice to be able to write on lines so that everything would be straight so I decided to use the decorative lined cardstock. I only had it in 8 1/2″x11″ so I adhered it to brown cardstock. The brown cardstock had a lot of texture in it, too. I then adhered a Fall border on the bottom of the page.
I then matted the picture on two pieces of decorative paper. One of them was about families. I then decided it was time to make fall flowers. I was using the scallop punches for the petals and then the round punches for the center of the flowers. I adhered them to the page with brads.
After that I journaled about the “story” and listed everyone who was there. I added a few tags and a “precious” sticker.
With the fall flowers I covered some scrolling, words, and stars that were on the decorative lined cardstock.
Love the finished layout!
