October Playdate - Pathfinding

It's officially Fall, even though temperatures may feel like summer where you live. That means it's time to get creative with Pathfinding.  This month we will be creating three two-page layouts using this festive, fall paper packet.

I live in Arizona, so I don't exactly appreciate four seasons like the rest of the world.  Can you see how I altered the stamped image in this layout?















Items needed
G1082 Pathfinding Workshop Kit
X1786C Pathfinding Complements - chipboard
1 extra sheet of Colonial White cardstock


Have a memorable day,
Sheila

Okay, one last Chalk It Up item.  I couldn't resist decorating the cover of this journal with a 5x7 card.


Have a memorable day,
