Pages with Papertrey, 10/1/11

I realize that it is almost the end of the month, but I have finally gotten around to completing my Pages with Papertrey challenge #2. The challenge was to use fall elements on our layout.

Since I am in the middle of working on my daughter's school album, I thought I would sneak in some leaves from my Turning a New Leaf stamp set and die. The pictures in this page are a snippet of her school year from fall to spring. I originally thought I would place my leaves near her Thanksgiving pictures. I tried to figure out a way to incorporate some hearts or Easter images along my photo strip to balance things out, but came up with nothing. So frustrating. So instead I placed them on top of my library pocket. Did you notice that the cards are still blank? Well, now that I am almost caught up with her album, I can begin writing down my notes. I also used my new PTI Spring Moss dye ink. I didn't have any problems with the previous pigment ink, but the dye ink is so pretty and vibrant. I am loving it!

All of the elements are from the Becky Higgins School Expansion kit except the button and twine are PTI. I did "clean up" my twine after I realized how scraggy it looked in my photos. I used my Graphically Speaking cartridge to cut the title Life's little moments with my Cricut.
