Fall Colors

I think this is the first time I have scrapbooked a layout without a single picture of a person on it. It was a lot of fun doing a layout showing off all the fun sights we see every year at Vala's Pumpkin Patch. It is such a fun place and certainly doesn't really "feel" like fall until we have visited each year! I got this idea from a sketch designed by Brenda Arnall. You can find her in the November Creating Keepsakes magazine article entitled " Easy Patterns". She has a book entitled that as well. Her articles are always excellent and give you basically step by step directions. I LOVE her style. I have take a few classes from her at CKC and she is a GREAT instructor. I have also got to spend time visiting with her and she is very down to earth and a nice lady. If you ever get a chance to meet her or take a class from her, do so, it will be well worth your while. The papers featured in this layout are from Crate Paper and look great with all your fall pages! I got all these great papers in my October Personalscrapper kit! I have a few pages still under construction and hope to finish them tomorrow, I am behind on the October layout a day contest and NEED to catch up! I am waiting on some pictures that I ordered online. I am trying several places for photofinishing as I have had troubles with Walgreens (long story) and their photos not being as good as I prefer. So I am trying out Wolfe Camera and to see if I can decide which one to use for some of my photofinishing. I was pleased with Wolfe Camera but not OVERJOYED and I am still waiting on the ones from, so I will let you know what the verdict is when I get them. I am not sure I will like waiting on my photos to get here, after getting them in one hour its hard to change, but if the quality is better I plan on doing just that. I will just have to learn some patience ~ LOL! Tune in tomorrow for use your stash Tuesday!


  1. Lisa, I always used until I started printing at home. I have always had good pictures from them and usually do my photo christmas cards thru them too. Customer Service has always been good too.

  2. The October kit worked perfectly with this layout...well done Lisa.

  3. This layout is one of my favorites in the PS gallery - loved it! Good luck finding a photo printer you are happy with. I am lucky that my Walgreen's hasn't disappointed me. I love the 1 hour pickup. I always run into "unexpected delays" when I order online for mail delivery.
