Fall Trends and Using Fashion as Inspiration

Good morning, friends! Today I have a layout to share for the fall trends challenge. For this challenge we are incorporating fall trends into our layouts. I chose to highlight teal, green, plaid and polka dots in my layout of the girls learning to walk and used the "Sweet Sue" kit while creating. I mimicked the stripes in my daughters' dresses by using a variety of strips of patterned paper from Sassafras Lass, October Afternoon, Making Memories, My Mind's Eye and Jenni Bowlin. 

Here's a close-up of my title and the top where I used a part of the Basic Grey doily ribbon and a Sassafras Lass banner sticker that I cut off. I also sprayed my layout with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Turquoise.

I stitched all my strips of paper together and covered up the number of the Elle's Studio tag with a Sassafras Lass heart sticker. I put Distress Stickles on top of the brad. 

I layered the Sassafras Lass die-cut with a Prima flower and used the "Joy" metal word from Making Memories on top of a label from Elle's Studio. 

Be sure to check out the challenge and link us up to your layout! Have a great day! :)
