Catching Up

Earlier this week when I shared my news about being the newest member of the Journaling Junkie Design Team, in my excitement I neglected to post any layouts. No eye candy? Shame on me. So to make up for my bad manners, here are the two layouts I submitted for the current challenge, Seasons


First, this fall layout, because autumn really is my favorite season. With these gorgeous photos, I kept everything else very simple. That decision afforded me time to play around with the font colors on my computer journaling.
I also submitted this layout about spring, because at this time of year, many of us are yearning for spring to put in an appearance, even briefly.
I haven't seen that first robin yet, but there is always hope. Do you have a favorite season? Have you scrapped about it? What about a season of life - do you love your current one? That deserves a layout!

  1. Beautiful colors on both layouts, and your robin photos are absolutely stunning! You must have one heck of a camera :)

    Oh, and if it helps, I did spy a robin a couple weeks ago. A very chilly-looking robin!

  2. My robins don't look like that! And robins here stay put for the winter that's why they are on all the Christmas cards! love the colours of your Autumn LO- (not fall?) wish our trees were so beautiful.

  5. Oh yes, longing for spring. We've had very springlike weather this week and it has been WONDERFUL! I'm loving the season of life we are in right now, despite the fact that Robbie's still job searching. It must be God's peace!

  8. The photography in your layouts is beautiful.
    I like how you played with the font colours in your first layout.
    And in your second, I am so hoping to see that first robin soon, but I have my doubts.

  9. Beautiful layouts and photos! I love fall too, I grew up in Spokane WA but moved to Orlando FL where there was NO fall for 15 years. It was quite the shock. Now I live in TN where we do get four seasons. I love being in a climate with fall -- though winter, I could really do without! I take lots of photos through the fall but don't scrapbook enough of them. I need to do that. Thanks for the inspiration. :)
