Fall Pages and stolen album.....

Happy Wednesday! Today I will share the Fall layouts I made over the weekend. This first one is with Crate Paper Restoration Collection. These pictures were taken when we visited our daughter and took her for lunch on our way home.

For this layout I used Crate Paper,  Basic Grey and The Girls Paperie. These are my children Valerie and Daniel goofing off and having fun at T.J.Maxx.

The tree paper for my next layout is from Echo Paper called "Tree Tops A Walk In The Park". We went to a local farm here in Dothan which has a Pumpkin and Sunflower Patch.

I used  Paper Poppy Kit to make this next layout. I love the colors and  the papers!!!  I cut the two pumpkins on the left with the cricut and then used the cuttlebug to emboss them.

My last layout on this post is made with Nikki Sivils "Tree Love" collection. I made the large trees imitating the border of the papers.

I made this album as a swap for my friend Nanne (SOUS) in Finland and it was stolen from my car in Panama City Beach last weekend!!!!!!!!! It was a 22 page Donna Downey 8 x 8 album.......I cried, you bet I cried........ the worse thing is that I think it was a teenager and I am sure they threw it away not knowing what it was!!!!! Oh well, I guess worse things happen.... here are some pictures of the album.

I found this fabulous site called Why leaves change colors. If you are blessed to live in a part of the world where leaves change its colors you will enjoy reading this article. Fall is about change. Fall is beautiful.


  1. let me guess - you whipped this all up this morning?!?!
    all cute - i LOVE that pumpkin page

  2. Oh my heck!
    That is so horrible!
    Maybe they actually do appreciate it and Maybe they gifted it to someone who really, really appreciates it.
    That's the world I live in.
    I heart you!!

  3. Bea, Im so sorry that someone would steal something from you. Praise the Lord you had already taken pictures though! I would have cried too. All the pages and the book are fabulous! I think CP's Restoration line is my new favorite!

  4. Oh my goodness, lovee! These are all fabulous. And I absolutely ADORE what you did with the kit. Those embossed pumpkins are amazing!!!

  5. These pages are awesome! It amazes me how much you do each day! Love the photos in TJ Max. When my girls were younger they would take the train to downtown Chicago and try on gown and all sorts of really beautiful outfits and take photos of themselves and would just giggle for hours on end later. How fun and thanks for bringing back those fond memories!

  6. Bea, what wonderful pages. And oh, the album is (was) divine! Poor Nanne! And poor Bea. What a shame!

  7. Oh, I'm so sorry someone stole your album for your friend! Nothing's safe anymore, such a shame!!!

    But, all your work is just beautiful. I really don't know how you do so much so fast!!!
