I created a design using Little Yellow Bicycle's fall line from 2011. It had a quote that I totally loved.

" Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.~Emily Bronte"



This quote needed just the right photos and I found these three of Max when he was about 3 years old. These pictures still make me laugh and smile 10 years later! I like the balanced horizontal design for these photos and added visual interest with a large chipboard piece, buttons and twine. It's these little bits that ARE my favourite parts of a layout.

 I pulled the title "bliss" out of the quote and it really does represent his joy at playing in the leaves..(if you could just see my hubby's face ..he doesn't look quite so blissful at having to re-rake all the leaves!)

The final touches of a little bird and a chipboard bracket draw the eye to the focal point photo.

I hope you will stop by all the inspiring blogs and fall in love with FALL!
Until next time, kep doing what you love to do!

  7. I don't use red much but it really sets off these photos. I love that you used older photos, I find myself drawn to my favorites from years past and often want to do a new page with them. Great way to build albums for family members. Thanks.
