A Splendid Moment

There is this old abandoned barn just off the highway on the way to my in-laws that I have wanted to stop and take photos at for the longest time, like for the past 3 or 4 years now. This past Thanksgiving weekend we finally did it.  We dressed for the occasion, brought along the tripod and finally did it.  I am so glad we did too, we got a couple of real gems to scrap and hang on our wall.

Since neither of us really enjoys being in front of the camera, there aren't many photos in my scrapbooks of just us sans kids, but I think it's so important to our family albums.  I would hate for my kids to look back and wonder why their parents are missing from the pages.  I think it speaks of love when kids can see their parents together in photos.  The memories will fade, but the photos will live on, as a reminder that we genuinely loved one another, and cared for the eachother's company.

That great cork bow is from the latest Dear Lizzy Collection

The beautiful weather, the beautiful backdrop and our beautiful girls looking on as we posed for a couple of photos.  The moment truly was a splendid one.  I have no doubt more photos from that little shoot will soon appear here also.

These layers make so happy, the colours are just so fresh and new for Fall.  I even managed to use up those Maya Road star pins that I have been hoarding for years.

I used the gorgeous new Cedar Lane collection by Pink Paislee to document this moment. You can still get your hands on most of it in the Paper Issues store.  Be sure to use my code to save 20% off.

How have you been scrapping your Fall photos, and using the new Fall themed collections? There are plenty of opportunities to show us in several challenges in our Friends and Fans Facebook group, and right here on the blog in our latest Fan-atics issue.  We look forward to seeing your work.
