When these Walden kits arrived at my doorstep, I was in the midst of the usual craziness. Jack isn't walking yet, but since my dad and his wife were in town, he has been pushing around a motorbike-walker-thing like crazy. And now it seems like he's running. Thankfully, I carved out some time to make some of my favorite layouts using photos of my favorite guy. These kits are really awesome and make me realize that I am truly obsessed with leaves. Here's how a couple layouts came together using only the Scrapbook kit.Using the Concord and Baker Bridge add-ons (these leaves are so beautiful, I want 10 packs), I used black and white photos for this neutral page of Jack's early months. I stitched the numbers with my Comrade embroidery kit and kept the photos & numbers as the focus of the page against the white. If I were to only get 1 add-on this month, it would definitely be a toss up between Concord and Baker Bridge.And last but not least, using only the Concord kit, I wanted to make a layout for my mom's birthday.For this Project Life spread, I used the Walden kit along with photos and memorabilia to tell most of the story. If I felt the need to do more journaling, I would probably do so on a card and just slide it into one of the pockets. For now, this feels like the perfect balance of photos + product to me. Not to mention faces, food, and fun things.It's starting to feel a little like fall around here, and apparently on my layouts too. There's a leaf on every single project except for one.
