Simple Scrapper October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Simple Scrapper October Blog Hop! Today the design team is featuring layouts made with the October collection of sketch templates, which are available to premium members of Simple Scrapper. You can win a one-month trial subscription; details will be at the end of this post. But first, here is my layout!


This page is from our trip to Springfield, Illinois. I love visiting historic homes, especially ones I've read so much about. Yes, I am a history nerd.



Bonus points if you can name all four of Abraham and Mary Lincoln's sons,  without looking it up. (no cheating!)

  14. Great layouts and love all the brads, layering and washi tape you used. Phil's butterfly photos are stunning! I went into a butterfly exhibit at an aquarium a few years ago. I hate things flying around me but somehow you do get used it and we tried to get them to land on our fingers. They are so pretty! :)
