Take Twelve: October 2012

This month is the only time all year that the twelfth falls on a Friday. We had planned to take a long weekend to catch the fall colors along northern Lake Michigan and the surrounding area. What a perfect combination for a scrapbook page! (you can see we managed to squeeze in some shopping and good eats along the way)


Can I let you in on a little secret? I made this page ahead of time, then came home and added the photos and journaling. A pre-determined template and fall theme made it all possible. I used Simple Stories Harvest Lane, a wonderful collection that combines really well with Lily Bee's Autumn Spice line. I've even re-stocked this in my stash for more fall scrapping!

  20. Love this! Found your page on Ella's 12 on 12 blog. I am participating in that project as well. I thought I recognized some of the photos and then, read your journaling. I was right! I live in Elk Rapids which is between Charlevoix and Traverse City. Isn't the Tunnel of Trees magnificent? Thanks for sharing our lovely area!
