Crate Fall 2Peas

Fall always reminds me of bringing Nico home from the hospital. I remember the day we walked out of the NICU with our tiny baby - fragile and yet so resilient in many ways. Fall was the season I became a stay-at-home Mom, learned all about apnea monitors and how to give a baby CPR. We had to keep him inside and away from germs and people for months. It was a long season.

When the following Fall rolled around we made up for it by visiting as many pumpkin patches and festivals as we could. I think that you can see just how grateful we were to have him in these pictures.

My assignment over at was to make a Fall page. I thought these pictures went well with the Farmhouse line by Crate Paper.

I used a mix of solid and printed paper to add color and a farm feel to the page. The three staggered photos add clean lines. The corrugated alpha and felt flower are from Jillibean Soup and match well with this line. I "hung" two photos with some twine and cute chipboard clothespin from Crate. And those tiny white letters are from Lily Bee - I keep using them on everything!
