Lori Whitlock's October Blog Hop with Fall Layout

Welcome To Lori Whitlock's October Blog Hop! You should be arriving here from Corri's blog, but if you're just joining us you can also start out at the beginning from Lori's Blog found HERE.

Today I have a layout to share using the Fall Reflections collection which she designed for Echo Park, in addition to lots of her great SVG cutting files.  :)

I've been holding onto these special baby pictures of my youngest daughter for almost 8 years now, waiting for the perfect papers to inspire me.  The Fall Reflections kit fit the bill perfectly!  

I chose to cut out a number of Lori's Flourish shapes in ivory to mimic the swirls in the title and then cut all of her wonderful leaf shapes from all of the great tone-on-tone prints from the collection.  The words "Autumn Leaves" were part of a beautiful longer phrase, but I was needing something a bit shorter to fit my space so I chose to isolate the two words.  Love how flexible cutting files can be!  :)

To create my layout I used the following cutting file available for purchase in Lori's shop (as well as in the Silhouette store).
As a little bonus, I thought I would share a second digital layout I created this past week.  It documents my husband and daughter's annual trip to Japan to visit their grandmother and feed the deer at Nara Park.  For those who are new to my blog, these deer are everywhere and they're not shy.  It's such a wonderful experience that it's a scheduled stop every time we visit.  We have lots of photos of the girls with the deer over the years so this year's pictures focused on Grandma and the new babies in the park. ;)

For my digital layout I turned to Lori's Sweet Memories collection (which is available as a set or individually as elements and papers) and a wonderful 2-page sketch by Allison Davis at Scrapbook Generation).

For my background I used Lori's Masking Templates Set 1 and for my yellow border I used her Masking Borders 2.  With this layout I am now officially halfway done with my digital albums for this Christmas.  Woo-hoo!

Are ya still with me?  ;)  In honor of the blog hop Lori is offering everyone 30% off through October 14th when you use the code "Boo" at checkout.  You can find her shop HERE.  :)
