I can't believe my vacation is over and I am back to work. I do have to say that this really was an awesome vacation. My main goal was to relax and I did! I was able to read 3 books, scrap, spend time with family, and enjoy being home with my family! Now I am back to the grind! It is nice that I enjoy my work and I look forward to seeing all 125 students today!
Now on to my layout!
When the kids are little I let them paint their pumpkin instead of carving it. So Michael had so much fun this year! He got so into it. I loved watching him. It was such a fun day!
Once again I used the Echo in the Park paper. For the most part I used scraps to make this layout. I used the scraps from Jack's "Pumpkin Carving" layout. I just love this line. The colors and designs were just awesome!
Here you can see the strips of scraps that I used. I also used a ticket to give the date.
I love the little spider down by the journaling card. Another thing that I love about Echo in the Park is that they give awesome journaling cards! I love it when everything goes together . It makes is just so darn easy! To finish it off I just added some of the star embellies and scattered them around the page.
I had some doodlebug buttons that matched the paper pretty well so I added those with some button twine. For the title I kind of used a combination of Foam Thickers and the stickers that came with the Echo in the Park paper kit. I had to use the two different kinds because I didn't have enough of either so I just mixed it up a bit. I kind of like how it turned out!
Pattern Paper: Echo in the Park
Buttons and twine: Doodlebug buttons and paper trey ink twine
All other embellishments: Echo in the Park
