Is anyone missing summer right now? Well... not me. I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of summer but I do love fall. I love going to the park near my house and see how trees change their colors. For today's post, I am going to be sharing with you a layout I created using the gorgeous Pumpkin Spice Collection, which happens to be one of my favorite Doodlebug collections of all time. 

For this layout, I decided to document an old photo my sis took of me in the park during fall time. I really wanted to recreate the park scene of me sitting on the grass under a tree, so I started by cutting a tree branch from Kraft Buffalo Check-Wood Grain Cardstock.  After I cut the branch I decided it needed a little bit more texture, so what I did was to adhere the branch to a white piece of cardstock, then punch holes with a craft pick all the way around it, and then did some simple back hand-stitching. Once I finished, I carefully (I didn't want to mess up the embroidery part) fussy cut the branch leaving a small white border, and adhered the branch in place with some foam adhesive.

Following up, I fussy cut a bunch of leaves from the Unbe-leaf-able Pattern Paper, and some flowers from the Sunflower Fields Pattern Paper. Next, I adhere the flowers and leaves around the tree branch and added sprinkles in the center of each one of the flowers.

Continuing with the process, I added my photo, title, and journaling. For the title, I used "hello autumn" from the Chit Chat Set.

To add some more fun to the page, I added cute little creatures from the Mini Icon Sticker Set (comment below if you can find them!), as well as some fun words from the Chit Chat Set.

Let's take a look at the completed layout!

I had so much fun creating this layout and I think it also made me a little bit hungry too lol. I hope you guys enjoyed this post too and liked the ideas I shared. If you have any questions just leave a comment below or send me an email. I'll be happy to help you.  Have a wonderful day!
