More Fall Fun with Simple Stories

Is this a busy time of year for you?  Trying to get those Fall memories documented?  The Simple Stories Harvest Lane collection is a great palette for getting those photos scrapped and the design elements make it, "Oh so easy!"  This page of my son playing at the park was created in less than an hour... 

Tip: Even with a time crunch, push yourself to scrap more than one photo. I like to combine 4 x 6 photos with wallet-sized ones to get a better feel for the event/moment and to add more personality to the layout.  It also takes up more room on the page that you will not have to embellish.  I also love to pick up the main colors in a photos with the border of the layout page, so this light floral patterned paper was a great compliment and makes the photos pop.
I love how there are multiple sizes of alphabet stickers included with each collection.  It was fun to wrap my title around the page and start with the largest letters (featured below) and end with this phrase using the smaller red alphabet.  The grid patterned paper makes it so easy to line up all the elements on the page.
The 4 x 6 journal elements make great photo mats, like the one I used here to make this funny picture of my son stand out a little more on the page.
The cardstock stickers are wonderful embellishments and sentiments.  Add a little bit of foam tape to make them more dimenstional without too much bulk on the page.  Simple is the way to go at a busy time of year like Fall.  Hope this page provides a little inspiration on how to scrap in a hurry.
