Autumn Splendor

This week's challenge at Lasting Memories is AUTUMN SPLENDOR! Use those autumn colors, photos, accents! It's up to you!

For this week's challenge, I used a photo that my hubby and I took in a photo booth in this year's fair. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved photo booths, and he hasn't. I always have to drag him in one. This year, he was all for it! (Maybe it because we hardly have recent photos of ourselves)

Most of the people who are familiar with my style, know that my usual go to embellishments are buttons and ribbon! Here they are as always. I wanted to do something different with the ribbon this time. I used the ribbon as a border, and also as a backdrop to the photo strip.

Threw in some alphas for the title!

And topped it off with some fall colored flowers. The leaves are actually satin cutout ribbon from May Arts!

Ribbon, Lace, and a hint of Pink!

This week at Lasting Memories, we have a brand new challenge for you!
 "Ribbons, Lace and Pink!" 
Use your ribbon, lace and some pink anywhere on your LO's!

Here is my take on the challenge! I took photos of my husband and I from Valentine's Day a few years back. I used the perfect DCWV stack for this challenge: Linen and Lace.

Kaisercraft florals to add some dimension.

Recollections Alphas and, of course, my go-to Ribbon: May Arts!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
