So, whether it has really sunk in yet or not, October is officially in the hizzy. And sure that means the changing of the colors, visits to pumpkin patches, wearing cozy sweaters with your favorite jeans and daily pumpkin spice latte splurges. So what? Wait, what am I saying? That’s huge! I love fall. So let’s get to it. Bring on the cozy memories and the subsequent cozy scrapbook pages. I’m ready.
To kick off the fall feeling, I scrapped these first-grade portraits of my brother and me taken in October 1973—40 years ago! I made the design more symmetrical and formal than my usual style, as I thought this first school portrait was a pretty momentous occasion and deserved a little pomp. It’s clean, simple and classic…or at least that’s what I was aiming for. 😉
I created this page using patterns from the BasicGrey “Oxford” collection from a few years ago. The title came from a card design I purchased on the Silhouette store (#27104).
