Fall is Here

Can't you just feel fall in the evening air?  The leaves are starting to turn and it's time for Football games.  Fall is my favorite season.  I love all the warm earth tone colors.  Close to my heart has several paper packs and card stock in those warm colors I love.  Here are a couple fall pages I did at one of the CKC Crops.
 On this page I used olive card stock and strips off the Mischief B&T Duos paper. I cut the end strips off the B&T paper and distressed them with a distressing tool, water and coco ink.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of terracotta card stock using  the Fall Favorites (stamp of the month) in coco ink.  I stamped the leaf boarder using the So Grateful stamp set in coco ink.  The perfect pumpkin is hard to find!  Mallory used hers to sit & rest her leg. (note the pink cast)

As you can see Mallory enjoyed the pumpkin patch with a pink cast & crutches, that resulted from a fall off the monkey bars on the 4th day of school.  Home school for four months.  On these two pages I used olive card stock and Moonlight paper pack.  The leaves were a give away at the convention & I colored them with our alcohol ink markers in several fall colors (one that was a give away at the CTMH booth).  The acorns are brads that I won at one of the crops.
It is a tradition in our family to visit a pumpkin patch & corn maze together each year.  These pictures were of last years visit to Williams Orchard in Rural Retreat.  There were apple shooters, a pumpkin canon, a corn maze and of course a hayride to pick out that perfect pumpkin.  Wait until you see our pumpkin carving event!  Our family enjoys spending time together and Fall is full of fun things to do.  This is the reason I scrapbook.  I want to record our stories for all that come after me.  If you want to tell your stories of Fall events go Here .   If you like the purple and black combo check out the Laughing Lola paper pack.  If you like the oranges, browns and greens....check out the Huntington and Sarita paper packs.  All are just $9.95.
