Create an autumn scrapbook
October 15, 2009
Fall means back to school, changing leaves and Halloween. If you love the fall, document each step of the season by creating an autumn scrap book. (Seasons are a great way to break up photo albums and scrapbooks, because they make it easy to keep a consistent theme.)
For the fall, chose paper colors like gold, red and orange for your pages and consider pasting in pictures of the first day of school for kids, hiking trips with friends and family and pictures from long weekends and parties.
If the leaves change in your part of the country, snap a few pictures of the same tree throughout the season to document the changes. You could even stick a few pressed leaves into the scrapbook for fun.
Also, make sure to get plenty of pictures at seasonal events like pumpkin carving or hay rides. If you bake any fall-flavored treats like pumpkin bread or apple pie, snap a few pictures of those, too.
Of course, the grand finale to the scrapbook can be Halloween. Be sure to document the whole holiday, from putting on costumes to eating candy. (Save a few wrappers for the scrap book too.)
