Scrap Booking KWerner Style!

When I saw Kristina's color inspiration for this week I thought of some pictures that I could scrap book. I think these colors are beautiful together and it really makes me think of fall.
This is what I came up with. I embossed the leaves with craft Chocolate Chip ink and clear EP. I think is looks really nice in person. You may be wondering where the Bravo Burgundy is, well it is the maple leaf, it almost looks like the chocolate chip.
I didn't have room for lots of journaling so I made some inserts. I made them at the top so people wouldn't have to take the whole page out to read it.

I layered 3 different ribbons to make the strip: so saffron, old olive, and pumpkin pie. I also stamped the letters on DSP Spring Flowers, which is now retired, and I cut them out and mounted them on different colors of card stock.
I also added more ribbon to the tab to help it stick out a little and also make it look a little prettier. I should really start doing this more often and maybe I will get some more scrap booking done for my own family. We'll see. Supplies:
Stamp Sets: With Gratitude, Jumbo Outline Alphabet
Paper: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Bravo Burgundy, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, DSP Spring Flowers (Retired)
Ink: Craft Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, Stampin' Write Marker Chocolate Chip, Signo White Gel Pen
Accessories: Clear EP, So Saffron Poly-Twill Ribbon, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Tab Punch, Sponge,
