Lasting Memories #574 - Stash Bash - Wood Veneer, Flair, and/or Buttons

Hello, everyone! Happy Sunday to you!  I hope you are having a good weekend. It's going to be a busy day around here so let's get started.

Lasting Memories has a new challenge today and I am playing along! This week our challenge is to use wood veneer, flair, and/or buttons on our layouts. This is what I came up with:

For my layout, I have used some old wood veneer pieces from Gossamer Blue. Oh, how I miss their kits and grab bags! This wood veneer is so incredibly thin and I am going to be so sad when it is all gone - but I am so happy that I got so many pieces used on this layout. 

I am still plugging away at my 2018 Favorite Photos of Ada TN - and I used another of the page kits that I put together for my stash bash kit this month:

I was able to use a lot of the scraps from this kit for this layout. 

These photos are of Ada with the handprint painting that she made for me. I am so happy that I will always have her little 4 - almost 5 - year old handprints on this canvas! I love pulling it out when it comes time to decorate for fall.

Here are a couple of close-ups:

I used the 'fall' wood veneer piece as part of my title - Fall Masterpiece. I added in a few leaf stickers behind the wood piece for a bit of embellishment.

I was so happy that I had so many fall-themed wood pieces left - these little acorns are my favorite! I added in a few die-cut leaves to finish off this little cluster - and they help to cover up the busy bookshelf in the background!

I love how this spread turned out! I am so glad that I am making working on my traveler's notebooks a priority this month. I may just have to keep it up the next few months!

Be sure to stop by Lasting Memories to see the beautiful layouts from the design team. I would love it if you played along with us!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I'll be back a little later with another project to share with you!
