Scrapbook Challenges October Mood Board

Remembering Earl – a layout based on the October Mood Board over at Scrapbook Challenges


Start: The October mood board over at Scrapbook Challenges

Style: This vertical strip pattern is a go-to page design for me.  I like the straightforward way it pulls one into the center of the page.  The order of it also lends a certain formality.

I had been sorting through some of my older papers and setting aside fall patterns that I liked.  So after seeing the mood board, it was no problem to pull this together with papers from that stack.

Story: My oldest brother Earl passed away last September.  His birthday also falls in September.  So he has been on my mind even more than usual for the last month.  I used the photo collage I created last September when I blogged about it.  It’s a year later, and still I choose to hide the journaling on this one.  You probably understand that.

Okay, now it is time to change my mood!  Off to work on something else.

Stash: Cardstock – Bazzill dotted swiss and Stampin Up
Patterned Papers – Lily Bee, Creative Imaginations (Sept.) and Websters Pages
Wood veneer, felt, green enamel dots – Stampin Up
Alphabet – Basic Grey (inked with Copic marker)
Journal card – Studio Calico
Edge punch – EK Success
Grey enamel dots – Teresa Collins
Chipboard button – Jenni Bowlin
