Ode to Fall

As promised, here are two layouts (finally, now that Photoshop has decided to cooperate with me again) using DSC's October collab, Falling For You. Wanna see the preview? Good! :)

If it's fall-ish, it's in there - and it's only $4.99 at DSC! Now for a couple of pages. One from a geocaching trip last fall...

This one was made with a template from Le Pingouin's Template Set Seven, also available at DSC - four great templates for $1.49 (this one isn't even my favorite from the set - seriously, go look!)

And another from Rachael's very first pumpkin patch visit, way back in October 2004. (Why no, I haven't taken many outdoor pics yet this fall...why do you ask?!)

Wasn't she a cute little chubster? :)

And now...I shall resolve to take some outdoor fall pics of my girls, post haste, so that I can make some current fall pics. Leave me a note to some of your favorite fall pages too - I could use the inspiration!

It's blog train time again!

We're FINALLY having a day here in southern Virginia that truly feels like fall. It's windy, cool enough for jeans and long sleeves, and yellow, orange and brown leaves are swirling everywhere. I LOVE IT! Fall is absolutely my favorite season, and I'm thrilled to see it return. To help celebrate, I've joined in a blog train with some other ladies from Digital Scrap Cafe...and here is a fall-ish luggage tag frame just por vous. Click on the image to download!

Then jump on board and visit the other girls too, for even more free frames!

All frames in this blog train were created using DSC's October designer collab kit, Falling For You. It's a huge collab, and only $4.99 this month. I have a couple of pages in the works using this kit too, so I'll be back with those soon. Meanwhile, enjoy the train...and thanks for stopping by! :)

My Fairytale Princesses

Okay, I just plain fell in love with this kit by Laurie's Scraps - it's called While Beauty Sleeps:

The colors are just perfectly girly and...well, I kind of have this thing about taking sleeping pictures of my girls, so doesn't the title sound perfect for that?! :)

First, I thought I'd show off some of my first-thing-in-the-morning birthday pictures. I have to have my last shots of each girl before they actually turn a year older...which is easier with Rachael (below) as she was born at 7:33 PM, versus Little Miss 7:04 AM who came next. This page was made with one of Le Pingouin's Shattered Blocks templates - check out the next post for another one!

And then, since we had the Sleeping Beauty theme going on and all...I just couldn't resist doing this. :)

This page was made with a template from Aprilisa - one that you can snag for free right now at DSC's Template Challenge. Grab While Beauty Sleeps while you're there too - it's only $4.99, a small price to pay for girly kit perfection. :)

Back to Skool

Back to school time is behind us now...six weeks behind us, in fact...and I'm finally finding a little time to scrap it. Yes, it's been that busy - but we love our little homeschool despite the craziness! The amazing designers at Digital Scrap Cafe put out a great back to school collab back in August. This is Skool Daze:

And this is our first day of school - using a nifty new template called Shattered Blocks by Le Pingouin Designs:

Rachael also started a brand new art class in September, and that needed to be documented as well!

You can find Skool Daze at DSC for just $4.99. Keep your eyes peeled for Shattered Blocks at DSC as well!
