I Fall For You (Little Yellow Bicycle Acorn Hollow)


I had a bit of fun with sandpaper on this layout. It all started with the word "fall" in the title. I transferred some older rubon alphas onto cream cardstock and then cut the letters out. In order to hide the "imperfections" of my cutwork, I decided to sand the letters to give them a worn look. Of course this then lead to sanding the leaves too. Gotta have flow and continuity on a page, right? :) I added some pearls to the leaves to give them a bit of a "girly" look to go with this sweet photo of Alexa.
