My Paper Pumpkin and Scrapbooking

With the start of a new SU scrapbooking club in town, I have been enjoying the creative outlet for telling the story of our lives with photos. It's so refreshing to sit down and complete something lasting and relive the memory of the fun times we experience.What I like about scrapbooking is the diversity of styles, the fun themes to play around with and all the cool embellishments. I LOVE embellishments- ribbons, buttons, tags-- the works!

In this layout, I just focused on the color family and used a LOT of this and that from my extra stash of items from my My Paper Pumpkin (MPP) kits. The photo sentiments, letters, wood-cuts, glitter dots, and arrow stamps are all MPP :) Even those 3 small stitched stars (from the December kit which I adore) are MPP. These kits spark such fun ideas that can be done rather quickly and in so many different design options that I'm always amazed. The contents of these kits never seem to run out (okay I used up all my stash making cards from my 1st or 2nd kit I think but now I know better ;)) but seriously, these kits are like GREMLINS. Yes-- shout out to the 80's!! Um- no.

Anyway, I had fun making this scrapbook page; now I feel content with at least one page done and I won't even think about all the pages I need to complete- yikes!
I'm linking over at the 'Special Moments' party going on at My Pumpkin Challenge. It's a late entry but the idea came to me on Friday and I just had to make time to play!!!
