Welcome to the Autumn Colours Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends!  You should have arrived here from Jan's blog.

For the blog hop I created two awesome layouts. The layout below is called "Hello Fall"

I used some stickers from the element sheet to do some of my "journaling"

I created this entire layout using a 6x6 paper pad so the title was cut out of one of the papers inside of the pack.

The second layout that I created is called "Love Fall"

I saw a layout on Pinterest using the same sort of layout of the squares and couldn't resist in trying it for a layout.  Again I added some stickers from the element sheet.

And of course to finish it all off I had to do some stitching.

Amazing Amanda! I love how you have taken my favourite element (stitching) and use it on almost everything you create :)

Ann Jobes

Nice work on both of these, Amanda, and you achieved a wonderful sense of symmetry on the 2nd layout and fun sense of whimsy on the 1st. Great work!


Beautiful layouts Amanda! Clean and simple and perfectly balanced! I love the photos you used and your stitching just adds the right amount of detailing :)

Lovely pages Amanda, especially love the squares on the second.


Great layouts! I love Simple Stories paper, it's perfect for fall pages.


Beautiful TWO pages you did!!!! I truly love them both especially the squares at the background on the layout.

I love the "this way <- and this way -> signs. They are so cute!

Both layouts are stunning! It's amazing what you can do with a 6x6. I'm really liking the use of squares on your second layout (permission to scraplift please?) :)
