What better time to scrap this picture with it feeling so much like fall outside and so many of the challenges are being inspired by the crisp, cool air.
I started with the picture and ran with a fall / pumpkin theme. (I almost always use this technique for my layouts. They are usually inspired by the pictures I choose.) I'm assuming this was some sort of festival or fair and found the Jubilee paper where there were tickets on the paper. I cut those out and then went to the Cricut Design Space to find oak leaves, acorns, pumpkins, tickets, banners, etc.
Cricut Cartridges include: Art Nouveau, Art Philosophy, October 31st, Pretty Pennants, Holiday Cakes, and Celebrate with Flourish.
The bottom sentiment is part of the strip from CTMH Huntington paper. This really fun background is from the CTMH Fundamentals.
I believe on this project I actually used around 7-8 different papers and/or card stocks for cutting in addition to the fundamentals I used as the background for my picture and the base of the LO.
Of course, then there are the mocha gems. I love those; when I saw they were being discontinued, I bought several packages. Other CTMH embellishments include: Sparkle gems tan and Rosette Ribbon. I colored the ribbon with homemade glimmer mist and tucked it under the flower and acorns in the upper right hand corner. I also sprayed the right hand corner and the left edge with chocolate glimmer mist.
Stamp sets include: CTMH Universal Backgrounds.
I had to leave the journaling banner empty for now. I need to talk to my dad and see what he knows about this picture. Someone else had written my grandma's name on the picture. This was interesting since I had always known her as Kathryn. I have to assume this was my great-grandmother's writing because it is not Grandma's penmanship. Of course, it could have been one of her sister's writing. She was the youngest of several girls.
Ok, enough speculation!
