After a long weekend in the mountains with bright, crisp days and cool, chilly nights, I was reminded that fall is fleeting. Before we know, snow will be flying and we'll be hitting the slopes. In fact, we moved our ski equipment into our new locker at the base in anticipation of opening day - it's less than a month away! Which reminds me, I totally need to pull out my camera and document my favorite parts of the season before they are gone. Time to use some of that Halloween candy I've been stockpiling to bribe the kids into a little photoshoot!
And speaking of seasons, today I wanted to share a quick page that captures some of the fantastic summer blooms from a field trip we took to the Botanic Gardens. It's a simple nine-square grid format, with each square measuring 3-inches. I included four photos, but you could easily use more or less with this flexible design.

I positioned the four photos around the center square, which houses my title. It's a combo of a die cut word, alphabet stickers and chipboard letters layered over patterned papers. On the four corner squares, I used various papers and embellishments to create accents that reinforce my page theme. The base layer of each measures 3-inches square, and each consecutive layers gets slightly smaller to create a pyramid-like stack of papers, chipboard, tags and accents.
So are you ready to document something about the season today? This grid design base will help you pull it together in no time. And for more examples of nine-square grid designs, you can check out these posts here, here and here!
I'm working on finishing up a new video and hope to have it live this week, iMovie willing. I'l let you know when it posts! Hope your Monday is marvelous!
