Falling with Momenta

Good Morning!  Don't you feel fall in the air? Here in southern Ontario we have cold nights and warm sunny days peppered with bouts of gray rain! So when I found these old photos of Max when he was 3, it really brought back those days at our old house on Riverside Drive and the many many many MANY leaves that would fill our yard each October.

 I began with a sheet of tan cardstock and added orange, burgundy and brown water colour paints to the background. I doodles a swirl in pencil and added the gold thread stitches by hand. The pennant shapes are cut from the Premium Paper Pad Fall (PA-2331).
 Some pennant shapes, some twine and some faux wooden letters finished it off. His eyes are so blue and his skin so fair. I can still recall the feel of his soft soft cheeks in the cold. I guess that's what scrapbooking memories is about! 

Thanks for joining me today, until next time keep doing what you love!


  1. LOVE that page. I love Fall... when it is sunshine of course. The cool nights make it easier to sleep and breath. Soon enough the leaves will turn and start falling... I too I'm scrapping a lot of "memories" except they are mainly photo-memories (i.e. I was not even there with the kids... sniff...) OK stop feeling sorry! Great page, love the colors.

  2. Beautiful page!! I love the scattering of leaves and the pennants behind the photo. It's still so darn hot here, no signs of fall yet!

  3. Great page Christa! I love the colors and the photos are adorable! I can't believe how blue his eyes are!
