Red Maple Trees with the Apple Crisp Daily Diary

Fall is here and it so happens that it is my very favorite season.  Here in Utah we get a beautiful change in the leaves and the slight nip in the air as the weather begins to cool down.  This months kit is perfect for documenting this season.  I decided to make a full page spread with the Apple Crisp Daily Diary kit and document my love of the red maple and the glorious color it turns in the fall.

I started with the Jillibean Soup pattern paper for my background. I used the large die cut letters for my main title and then added the 3x4 cards around it.  I chose to use two of them for embellishing, one for journaling, and one for my picture.

I then took the 6x6 Echo Park pattern papers and added a few strips among the 3x4 cards and added more across the top.

Noel combined some of my favorite embellishments this month:  letter stickers, enamel dots, and cork stickers.  I picked from the Tim Holtz word phrases and paired them with the heart cork and a couple of enamel dots.

Once I had placed everything down I went back and outlined the title letters with the AC Marker from last months kit and a few staples along the top.  Another very simple page put entirely together using the kit and a few must haves that are in my moving scrapbook tool kit.  At this rate I might need to get rid of all my stash and go back to all the basics . . . nah, that is probably too extreme, but it's nice to know that all I need is a few tools and Noel's kits and I am set.  :)

Happy Scrapping!
