02/02/17- TBT November "Round Robin" Challenge

As I am a little behind on blogging I realized I forgot to share this with you.
I have nothing else new to share at this time so I figured I'd do a Throw Back Thursday post; AKA #TBT
This was created for the November Round Robin Challenge.
As always I like to explain the rules first:
"There are teams of 4 people, one person for each week, similar to a relay race. The person assigned for week 1 in each group will start their team off with a layout depending on what the specs and twist will be. Then the following week, everyone assigned to week 2 will lift off their week 1 team member and so on. It's fun to see how a lift progresses from the first week to the fourth."
This time I was the 4th person on my team.
Here is the proceeding layouts/projects (NOT created by me):

Week 3:

Before I share mine, Week 4,  let me share the story behind it:
Oak Glen, CA is a place my family and I love to visit frequently!
I'm finding the words to explain the place a bit difficult right now so I will just copy and paste this little blurb I copied from their website:

"Take a visit to Oak Glen -
Five Mile Loop of 30+ Ranches, Farms & Businesses
Open Daily anytime of the year.
You will see one of the most scenic spots in Southern California"

Also, here is a link to their website: Oak Glen
Our favorite things to do there is go hiking and then enjoy a slice of  apple pie à la mode with a cup of hot chocolate.
Lately, because the kids are getting older, my husband and I go by ourselves.
We recently went w/ a couple of friends who were visiting from out of state.
While there we took lots of photos, but one of my very favorites was this "selfie" David took of us!

Later on he used a photo editing app to change the photo to B&W w/ just a few splashes of color showing through.
I liked it so much I scrapped both versions of the photo on one page:

 "Hello Autumn"

The Round Robin was the MAIN inspiration, and I was the last on my team,  so I will also show you the inspirational projects that proceeded mine (these were not created by me):


  1. Round robins are always so much fun! I love to see how the original changes! Your layout is so much fun and I love that you scrapped both versions of the same photo - the edited photo is fantastic! I'm pretty sure I bought some fall paper from Target a long time may be the same paper - I should try to find it to see!

  2. Loveeeeeeee your lo! LOVING that photo he took!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. both photos are great! I would of scrapped them both too! Oak Glen sounds like a fun place. You inspire to scrapbook more- thank you for that!

  4. Gorgeous! I love seeing the source of your inspiration. And Oak Glen sounds wonderful!
