Harvesting Memories Blog Hop

Pin It
Welcome to the Harvesting Memories Blog Hop 
"When the trees their summer splendor 
change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow, 
 and the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns, 
and the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn, 
loveliest season of the year."
-   Carol L. Riser, Autumn

Now for my Harvesting Memories Project....
Around here Fall means time to visit Oak Glen and the apple Orchards as well as the Pumpkin patch.
We love taking the day trip out to the country and taking in the gorgeous views.
My project is a layout showcasing photos from our trip to the pumpkin patch in 2010.
I just adore some of these pictures and really wanted them to be the focus of the layout.

Of course a cute title and some adorable pumpkin SVGs by Miss Kate helped create the perfect setting for my photos. I added some green stickles to the die cuts to make them stand out.

 I also used Kiwi Land Design templates for the fun borders and added some buttons for some added color. I didn't mat my photos, I just cropped them and laid them out six across on the page and let the borders and embellishments go on top of them. This was an easy way to get tons of pics on a two page layout.
I am also giving away some yummy rumple ribbon!! So be sure to leave me a comment below for chance to win my blog candy!!
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!
