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:

orange card stock - Bazill
*Collage Press card stock - Loveable - Knave Of Hearts Collection
*Jenni Bowlin - die cut paper (farmer's wife)

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!
