Happy Fall Y'All

Good Monday, everyone! My post today is a mini that I made for my son. I've been getting so crafty lately, that he finally said "Mom, when are you going to make a mini-book JUST for me? Don't I make you things ALL the time?" So... after looking through my mini-chipboard books, I decided to use a Maya Road mini I picked up from Paper Niche (that just the BESTEST LSS in my area!!) last year when they had a great sale (50% off all chipboard books - I got two of these little cuties!!). I just knew it'd come in handy. I was going to do a "Halloween" themed book and then just add in pics after this Halloween, but I decided on doing a "Fall" theme book instead. I had printed all of these pics from my son's (Preschool) Fall Festival 2 years ago (I HAVEN'T EVEN SCRAPPED THAT YET - BAD MOMMY!!). Anyways, I took and printed SO many pics, that I figured it would work out perfectly for this project (and, seriously, if i scrapped all of these pics, it'd be A 10 pager probably!!).

So, I used Basic Grey's "Max & Whiskers" papers. I just think the colors are so fall, and just go perfectly. Of course, I had to use my Lawn Fawn Bannerific/Harold’s ABC’s (also used Sophie’s Sentiments for that adorable little horseshoe!!) because it seems that nothing I can do now-a-days can't NOT have that awesome banner in it(and it fits the word HAPPY perfectly)!!!! I just LOVE it. It makes me happy! Add in some Papertrey Ink buttons, and so much ribbon that I lost track of it all - and I made my little man super happy yesterday! This is the front, back, and a middle view. of course, I HAD to finish it off with my "Made by" stamp (my son's orders - "mom! how will anyone know YOU made it?!?". P.S. In case anyone is wondering. I got this stamp on Etsy from "scribbling club" - and I ABSOLUTELY love it!!!!

That little "thingy" on my chest is my sweet Alivia (she was only 3 months at the time - so, I had her in the Baby Katan). I added a few lil pics of my son in the hay, riding the pony, playing with his friends, jumping in the bounce house...

I still have LAST year's Fal Fest pics to tend to. I do have another Pumpkin ;) hhhmmmm...OH! Wait, this year Alivia will be participatng in the Fall Fest... Exciting!! Well, that's my share for today. Hope you have a lovely day!!
