To celebrate Easter, I have a Thanksgiving layout for you : )

Timing is everything.

I always have fall papers and elements around as I'm slowly working on our wedding album (we got married Oct. 8... 2005) so I really can't help but use them even if they are a bit innapropriate seasonally.

Here's a layout with photos of myself and my parents. I didn't have my camera with me that day (of course) but it was such a perfect fall day. We were surrounded by beautiful, yellow, crunchy leaves and the sky was just a perfect blue. Next time, I will have my camera ready. Thankfully, someone else had a camera and I got pictures from them.

Some neat things I did on this layout:

I used two fake leaves on this layout that were actually part of our wedding decorations. They look just like real ones, but won't crumble. See them behind the big brown circle element? This is why I keep everything. I always find uses for things.

To make the journaling lines, I painted one side of an old CD case and used it as a 'line' stamp. I just used a cream coloured acryllic paint to do this. Cheaper than buying a stamp, and I like how it turned out.

Now, my challenge to myself is to take photos over Easter. For some reason, I haven't been taking many pictures lately. So, after the weekend, I'll have more pics to post.

Happy Easter!

That is a pretty layout Kelly! Happy Easter!

Don't worry, I am around. Had Mom and Dad here last week and a little dental work, doing some projects and all that jazz. I am actually going to post a new entry tonight.

Back to the grind.
