I've said it before....I LOVE Autumn. Aaaaah! Falling leaves, the crisp air, boots and fall fashion! Creating this layout got me excited for Fall!

This is another layout using some papers from my Scrap Freak Kit as GDT. It was inspired by the last Sketchy Thursdays Sketch over at Design by Diana.

These cute photos were taken in the Autumn of 2008 at The University of Washington campus. (Photos by CKao

Close up of the journaling (above).

I used the raw chipboard....didn't do anything else to it....thought it looked great just the way it was!

Broke into some metal charms that have been sitting in a box for awhile! I'm not big on hearts, but it looks soooo cute on this layout!
Here's what I used:
(* = available at store)

orange card stock - Bazill
*Collage Press card stock - Loveable - Knave Of Hearts Collection
*Jenni Bowlin - die cut paper (farmer's wife)
*Jenni Bowlin printed paper (red cabbage)
Stampin' Up! - Old Olive card stock
DCWV textured card stock
ribbon - Stampin' Up!
Liquid Pearls - Ranger
*chipboard Alphas - Maya Road

flower and button - Making Memories
metal heart charm - JoAnn
*rub ons - Jenni Bowlin
I'm excited for summer to end and ready to take on some serious projects! About this time, I start my Christmas shopping!
Here's my thought.....I'm NOT going to subject myself (and my children) to crowds of people in enclosed spaces.....if you were worried about the swine flu worries last year when the school season was wrapping up...wait till the ACTUAL FLU SEASON hits! So, I don't think we'll be going to any Holiday parties or Holdiay shopping in the malls this year. I hardly ever set foot in the malls between November and January anyway....I HATE crowds!
So, I'm shopping online and a little in stores until October. I also start making handmade gifts! I'm sooo excited!
I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
So, now that you know MY favorite season, tell me which one is yours!


  1. Awesome layout Mo! I like autumn also. Of course here in AL, we don't LOOK like autumn until mid November and by then, everyone else has moved on to winter pics. LOL

  2. This is so professional looking! I mean WOW! I love Fall too. And October is my favorite month. You are so talented!

  3. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I loveeeeeeeeeee that LO!!!! GORGEOUS photos and colors!!! *sigh* I wish we had Fall here....*sigh* it will be over a hundred degrees till the end of October....*sigh*...thanks for letting me enjoy Fall through your BEAUTIFUL LO! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

  4. Your layout is adorable! I just love Autumn, it's definitely my favorite season! Fall means that Thanksgiving is coming, woo hoo!

  5. Oh, Mo..we are like long lost sisters...I HATE CROWDS, well in malls especially! It's just that people can be so rude in stores and at Holiday time it is worse. I am gonna do my shopping online this year. I'm hoping to make some gifts too. Whatever I buy I'm hoping to get off Etsy to support other handmade artists:) I love the layout! Hope you have a great weekend!!

  6. i also do most of my xmas shopping online - it's easy and everything gets delivered to you so you don't do any impulse buying :D great idea to start now!
