October layouts featuring Sassafrass!

This has got to be my favorite October kit that we have done! (and it is our 4th!). I love the new papers from Sassafrass! We have included 10 papers this month! There is a variety to work with! My favorite part were the Sassafrass borders, journaling cards and circles! I loved using all of these because they coordinated so well!
I knew when I saw these papers that I have to do a Fall page. I had these pictures of the boys that I never scrapped. Ezra was still sitting in the bumbo last fall :) I started by using the glass slipper bling as my background and then added the orange polka dot paper and fruition paper. I printed a color 5x7 and 3 small black and white photos. I added one of the photos to one of the journaling cards and tied a piece of the orange ribbon to it. After a few addiitions of brads, ribbon, acrylic and a flower - the page felt complete. I did a simple Fall title with the alphabet.

Ezra at 17 months. We just got this picture done and the colors were perfect for this paper! I decided to use the circles to journal different things about Ezra at this age on them. I used brads and ribbon pieces to attach them to the papers! I layered a few different pattern papers and traced an arrow to place my title on. The journaling reads:17 months...
You have a great smile and love to Laugh!
You love music and love to dance. You don't like TV but you do like music!
You love to get into everything especially the refridgerator. You love snacks and milk.
You are a busy toddler but bring us so much joy! We love you and are blessed to have you!

Ok so i must start by telling you that this is jenny's idea :). This is one sheet of paper that had different patterns on it. Instead of cutting it up, I just added photos and titles to each of the paper sections. I added a few brads, ribbons and a flower to complete it. It is a little busy but nice to capture these pictures on one layout.
