"Happy Harvest" Release {Imaginisce}

It's hard to think about Fall right now. I'll admit it.
I love fall. (I hate that it is the gateway to winter...)
Looking at my one page layout after I took the picture of it, I figure I must REALLY {heart} fall-since it states it twice! LOL!

Happy Harvest has the cutest critters!
It has owls. Anyone that knows me knows I have owl issues. Love 'em.
Take me to a "junk store" (vintage/antique) and I go RIGHT for the owls each time.
Apparently I am not the only one, because said owl "junk" has been going up in price.
So now it is a hunt for a deal. But that's OK!

So Happy Harvest has cute owls... and a fox... and a TON of prints that work with just about anything else.
And yes-I did a 2 page layout... (no one fall over).
This is a Allison Davis sketchbook sketch.
Love these books! They are a sell out at the store! They are just ordering more now because they all sold out! Simple sketch-lots of options.
And for my 1 pager, I used a lot of chalkboard mist (not as opaque as I had hoped for), and used lots of the embellishment. Simple, but a way to highlight the wallet sized pictures I used. I lifted the little owl and fox off of the journaling cards, and placed them back down sideways, so when on their side, they were facing the right way on my LO... Does that make sense? So the lines aren't on wrong, I messed with them! :)
Be sure to be watching this week, as the Imaginsce Design Team ROCKS all things fall this week! AND you'll have a chance to WIN some too!

And PLEASE add yourself as a follower! Any give away I do, followers are ALWAYS included!!


Tags for me are like little scrapbook pages! The ideas and variety are limitless!
And they can be a fun little creative outlet! I loved playing around with the bits and pieces!
Nice to take a break from 12x12 for just a sec!

So here are my tags!

The first one, with the Echo Park stickers (thank you Echo Park for a sample of your FABULOUS "Dots and Stripes" line!),
is my favorite! For all three tags, I decided to go with blank tags and mist or paint.
Cardstock banner from animal crackers, the rub on banner from birthday bash, and the blue single banner and the birthday sticker are Echo Park!
The next tag, I used a Ranger Paint Dauber to "Patty Splat" the paint! Juice it up and "SPLAT"! This technique is great for fireworks layouts too! :) Stickers: Echo Park; Rub on and "candle" Birthday Bash.
And lastly I did a party invite-I placed it on a water bottle-you could add drink mix to make it a fun color, or choice your favorite drink to hook into the theme! How about root beer get together featuring root beer floats? Maybe I shouldn't blog when I am craving sweets... Or an invie on one of those cute little wine coolers? ANYWAY, more Birthday Bash rub ons, and some Echo Park paper and a touch of Animal Crackers and some Berrylicious! So there are some simple ideas for tags from me!

No go head on over to Kim Holmes blog! Because there are more ideas to come!!

Thanks for stopping!!
