Baby Boy Scrapbook Pages: The Pumpkin Patch

Oh my, we only just got back sharing Baby Boy Scrapbook Pages and already I am off my schedule of posting on Mondays!  It couldn't be helped, I had some backlogged reviews with due dates that I needed to take care of.  I hope no one minds that this is later in the week than planned!  To make up for it, I have another page to share tomorrow so its another 2 in 1 week.
These are from our first time taking the little guy to the pumpkin patch right by us.  It's a traditional experience from the hay ride out to the field to the animals to pet and donuts to eat - stopping for hand washing in between I promise!

I will admit that when I was working on this layout I was powering through a lot of fall pictures and on a mission to get it done as opposed to making a grand creative statement.  Sometimes that's necessary and it's okay.  Not every page has to be a masterpiece.

I love fall photos with all the colors and textures and I wanted to use these photos without a lot of cropping and still  keep everything on one page.    Normally I start off with a sketch for inspiration but this time I just laid down my pictures and moved them about until I liked how it looked.
Then I filled in the remaining spaces with paper, leaving one spot for journaling.  While not planning on it, I thought the arrangement looked a little reminiscent of divided pocket page protector scrapping.   So to break up the boxy feeling I layered my embellishments, a collection of fussy cut leaves and stickers, over the margins between photos and patterned paper. 
I think extending the elements and titles break up linear look this layout would have otherwise.  Even though there wasn't a lot of room leftover, once the photos were placed, I think it still ended up being a very nice seasonally themed page due to the embellishments and papers, that while used sparingly, make a good impact.

The paper you used for your pumpkin patch pictures is adorable. I love the patchwork feel with the pictures. What a great way to include 4 pictures and still show off the fun paper. Pinning this. :)
