Perhaps it is the cool, fall-like weather we have had for the past week or the fact that Halloween and Christmas papers have been arriving at the scrapbook store, but whatever it is, I have been in the mood to scrapbook autumn.

These are some “rejects” taken a few years ago when we were taking my daughter’s senior photos. Even though they weren’t senior photo worthy, they are still beautiful photos that capture so much of Korie’s personality. They definitely deserve a place in a scrapbook, so this is what I created: (click on the image for a closer view)
I only had one of each paper in this collection, so I cut two of the papers in half and used them on each side to make it coordinate. I added a strip of another paper over each seam and then a larger stripe across both sheets to serve as photo mats.
I used Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain Distress Inks on the edges of the papers and the die cuts (Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves).
For the letters, I used Word Play by Tim Holtz. I cut them out of Grungeboard, then painted them with Claudine Hellmuth’s Studio Paint, stamped them with a background stamp by Studio 490 and then coated it with Glastique for a shiny, epoxy finish.

On the right side, I included a couple of cropped photos:
Then I created a little grouping using dies, pins, burlap, twine and pieces cut from some of the papers in the collection. Here’s a closer look:
