Thankful Thursday 9/13/12

Today’s Thankful Thursday post is a layout I just completed, although the pictures are from almost 3 years ago.  And it’s a perfect Thankful post since the layout consists of Thanksgiving picctures.  I used CM’s Gratitude paper and I really like this paper pack.  Thank you for looking.  🙂

Tools Tuesday – Fall

Here’s a pretty easy layout using the rotary trimmer (with the straight blade) and the square punches.  Using up different orange papers made me happy because I don’t use orange very often.  Thank you for looking!

Thankful Thursday

Today’s Thankful Thursday layout is a layout that shows my Mom enjoying life.  I am so thankful for a Mom who embraces life;  always tries to find the positives; and absolutely loves people.

For this layout, I really wanted to use this great CM designer paper; but also didn’t want to cover up the spooky tree.  Was I going to be able to fit 7 pictures on one page?  I also didn’t want to have more than one page devoted to Halloween in my book.  Cropping photos – even the tiniest amount, can really help more than you realize.  The pictures of my friend Theresa’s daughter, Emily, were so sweet I wanted them all on the page.  She loved meeting Molly – we’d only had Molly about a week at this point – and of course Molly looks adorable as well.  The close up of Molly is a pic that Emily took.  Lower right is the annual Rutland Halloween Parade, and my friend Lori is an angel on the float.  Her family – the Fabian family of West Rutland – always make fantastic floats, and usually win Best in Show.  The upper left photo is a pic that Emily took of John.  A cute layout, just showing that you can fit a bunch of photos on one page – and still not cover up the parts of the paper that you love.
