Fall Scrapbook Albums and Nature Walks

I've been working to finish some Fall albums. I've been enjoying all the beautiful Autumn weather we're having in Dallas lately. My work has been inspired by nature walks with my kids, and from what I can see out of my craftroom window. 

This is a delightful weed that sprung up under my window this last week. I love the cheery yellow sprouts when everything else is fading to a crispy brown. 

Cracking leaves, brilliant shades. 

Love this butterfly stamp: In Flight. 

 I think these are about to burst into blossom. Whatever is in there the hummingbirds love them. This is a small bush by the front door. 

I'm so happy Thanksgiving is almost here. :) It's my favorite holiday. Family and friends sharing meals and PIE. It's also closely followed by my birthday. Just close enough that I can have turkey sandwiches with gravy as leftovers. 

My daughter and I are going to fill this wreath with the things we've been collecting from our nature walks. We added crunchy yellow leaves today. 

I am so in love with this color palette right now. Well, always, but I don't usually get to use it the rest of the year. :)

The whole feel of this came out so lush and regal. It makes me want to wrap myself in luxurious fabric and write long hand letters. 

This is the friendly tree outside my window. Sadly, it never gets any chirpy birds. That is reserved for the tree outside my daughter's window at 5 am. :D

Happy Scrapping friends! DeeDee

Maya Road Baby Calendar Album

This album started out as a recipe album during the Artistic Journey. It was a fun class taught by Katie Watson. :) It was hard for me to get into the class because 1. I was behind on the previous class and wanted to finish, 2. I don't cook so I don't have recipes, 3. I sat next to the funniest ladies who kept distracting me! :) You have to meet Sonia from Through these Eyes Photography.

I was feel extra crafty and rolled some handmade felt roses for the back. :) I kept the colors pretty neutral so it could be for a boy or a girl. I just love making baby albums. :)

Happy Scrapping friends. DeeDee

It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas

Time to change colors in my craft room. I have so many Fall projects left to put finishing touches on, but I think I am once again woefully behind as Christmas comes hurtling at breakneck speed! :) I thought I'd kick off this years Christmas projects with one I never finished two years back. Eeee. 

Yes, it's pretty vintage fabulous. 

Classic reds, browns, and evergreen. 

Tattered and torn vellum and tags. 

Yes, I love every folded inch of that ribbon. :D

Layered goodness. 

That tag comes out of the pocket, unties, and unfolds for journaling and photo space. Love it! 

Hope you are nowhere near as behind as I am. We probably really only have take 5 days till Christmas. Happy scrapping!
