Scrapology - October Layout Challenge

The end of October is fast approaching and I haven't yet posted my October Scrapology layout and details of the challenge. Lets put that right.

For the month of October the design team chose a layout by Laura Vegas as inspiration and challenge blog readers to use Laura's layout, buttons and our sketch to create a layout. 

For my layout I used a photo of my daughter taken a few years ago among the autumn leaves at Wrest Park.

I used patterned paper from various companies including BasicGrey and October Afternoon. The leaves and title were cut on the Craft Robo and the scalloped border strip was created using a corner punch. I raided my stash for lots of buttons including some pretty wooden buttons and they were all stitched or threaded with twine.

Here's Laura's original layout ...

.... and the sketch.

Hop on over to the Scrapology blog for full details of the challenge and to see all the other gorgeous layouts created by the design team.
