Good morning! Thanks for swinging by my home in cyber space as you hop along to some of my peeps’ blogs for the Leafing Memories Behind Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Amanda’s blog Love Joy Paper. The theme for this hop was leaves and I knew the photos I wanted to use right away.
We took a trip up to Dresden, Germany last fall and we found this small but beautiful courtyard in front of an old church. The trees were a fantastic yellow and there were huge leaves all over the ground. The girls played with the leaves while JG went up into the church. They had so much fun!
I just purchased some Bazzill Two Scoops Cardstock in various colors to include the “Moose Tracks” (rich brown color) recently and was excited to try it out. I lightly sanded it to expose the vanilla color beneath the brown. I didn’t add a big title because I liked the title on the journaling card so I left it at that.
Here is a list of supplies that I used for this LO:
Bazzill Basics Cardstock in Apricot
Bazzill Basics Two Scoops Cardstock in Moose Tracks
Bella Blvd Finally Fall “At the Patch” and “Cute Cuts”
Cosmo Cricket 2” Glüber for the base of my ribbon flower
American Crafts ribbon – Brown
Maya Road ribbon – Pink
Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso Ink
Here is a photo of the church so you can see why we loved this little spot. I loved the contrast between the colors of the leaves, the blue sky with wispy clouds and the gorgeous church steeple. I love the fall and the opportunities for getting some stunning photos!
Thanks for hopping over today! If you want to win some yummy German cookies and chocolate become a follower and leave me a comment telling me your favorite fall drink and I will pick a winner Sunday at 12 PST. I love apple cider but it is hard to come by here. I cannot wait to be back in the USA next fall so I can get some fresh cider because I really miss it!
Next stop is Ashley’s blog, Ashley’s Paper Doll. She is über talented and I bet she has an amazing project to share with you. If you want to join in on the fun you can create your own leafy project and link it to Amanda’s blog to win a prize of your own.
Enjoy hopping along and I hope you have a great weekend!
