Fall Into an Adventure!

   Time for a new challenge at The Outlawz Paper à la Mode and the theme is Fall Into an Adventure!  So I've decided to take that theme a couple of directions!  I designed this Keepsake Journal/Book foundation (which was sort of an adventure) to hold pics and ephemera from my Fall Adventures!  

Sort of the adventure that keeps on going!  Design the book, have the adventure, then document the adventure, then go back and relive the adventure!  

Challenges over at Paper à la Mode are so much fun since we can go any medium/project we like as long as we stick with the theme!  Oh, and NO CARDS!  Our current challenge is sponsored by Vectoria Designs!  

I have 3 videos on this book.  So grab a cup of coffee/tea/cider/cocoa and join me for some fall fun!  Please feel free to leave me questions on the videos; I'm always happy to help when I can!
