Auntie Em's September challenge - Hello Fall by Little Yellow Bicycle

One of the two favorite seasons in my home is fall (the other is spring) we love the warm "second summer" that you get in late September or early October, and love the pumpkins and the beautiful leaves turning colour. This month Emma challenged the Design Team to make their own titles, and while I typically will use my Cricut for something like that, I decided to use a cut out and hand write the remainder of my title. I don't do enough journaling on my pages. The sketch was very circular, and since this paper from Little Yellow Bicycle had the perfect pumpkin orange in it, I decided to make a pumpkin out of one of my circles.
I managed to squeeze out a second layout out of the leftover papers - this one was not based on the sketch. I entered it in the Newington fair and received a blue ribbon (that's 2nd place for us Canadians!) I was very pleased how this layout turned out.

If you would like to see either of these layouts or any of the others that you see on the blog in person they are all displaying proudly at Auntie Em's Scrapbooking in Cornwall.
You too can play along with this challenge, create a layout using product purchased at Auntie Em's based on the sketch from Scrapbook & Cards Today calendar (September) and your challenge is to make your own title! I can tell you that the prize from last month was amazing - over a $45 value!!! Who knows what Emma is going to give away this month, you still have two weeks to bring in your layout - you can't win if you don't play!

  1. Love the pumpkin in your layout. I also like those glitter flourishes & banners. I have a layout posted with the Hello Fall collection also. I think it was back in August tho.
