Just Us Ducks!

This week was a layout kind of week at The Rubber Café and with fall around the corner I couldn’t resist making a layout that captured the essence of the season.

Here is my (now 10 year old) daughter. I can’t believe she was ever this little!

This layout was inspired by a Jana Eubanks sketch and I created it first by stamping the leaves using the G-773 Falling Leaves set on cardstock. I then fussy cutted and arranged them as a border at the bottom of the page.

I used our TRC0010 Scrap Happy glue to adhere both the ribbon and the leaves and it worked great! I LOVE that glue.

I used a crochet flower and made my own rosette for the middle using glots made from the Scrap Happy glue.  Making flowers is so easy when you have a base to start with.

The most exciting part of this layout was the journaling section. I got to use my Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine and the Labels One die set. I’m a long-time user of another machine and I have to say that the Grand Calibur is SOO much easier to turn!!  I then used the Nestabling Labels One BlackR to accent this beautiful die cut.

The blank space is there for my personal journaling that I will add later. This was my daughter’s first Fall event she participated in and I wanted to capture those memories in writing for her.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your weekend is a wonderful one!

Love the rich Fall colors, we don't have too many of those colors here in Arizona. The stamped border just ads a classy look along with the other added elements, nicely done.

I just love this layout, who among us that are parents have not had a set of these ducks in our pics one time or another. I also have some good friends that their last name is Duck, I will have to show them this layout, the wife is also a scrapper too!!!
