Creative Explosion!

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm so behind on layout and project sharing! I've been creatively busy - too busy to write about it. There's something about fall that makes me feel homey - I like to cook and bake and decorate even more than at other times of year, so that's keeping me busy, too. But here's a taste of what I've been up to.

1. Photoless layouts. Sometimes I want to tell a story or say something but just don't have a photo to go with it...and I find these layouts to be a ton of fun, mostly because I don't have to remember to keep the design of the layout focused on a photo. Here are two I've done recently:

2. "Event" layouts. Here are a couple of our recent afternoon trip to Paulus Farm.

And here's one I did as part of a challenge at Ninth & Bloom. I'm especially proud of this layout because it took me HOURS to get the shadows on the intertwined ribbons right, and I normally don't have the patience for that kind of detail.

3. Altered items. I had SO MUCH FUN altering these clothespins with paint, rub-ons, ribbon, buttons and flowers. They're perfect to hold photos and notes.

4. "Moment" layouts that I do "just because."

Hope you enjoy! :)

Photo-less layouts. I love that idea. How many times have I missed telling a priceless story on a layout only because I missed the photo that should go with it?
