Well, I have to say that Autumn is my favorite time of year and I am so excited to be participating in the Leafing Memories Behind Blog Hop this weekend, with my friends from Club CK! You should have arrived here from Shannon's BLOG. If you did not, please go back to the beginning and get started at Amanda's BLOG, Love.Joy.Paper. You will have the chance to be inspired along the way, win some scrappy goodies, and be able to play along with us by creating your own project and adding it to the Mr. Linky on Amanda's blog.
Even though Autumn is my favorite season, it can be a little tricky to find sometimes way down south in Alabama. It usually just goes from hot, steamy Summers to cold, wintry days. But, Fall does manage to sneak itself in there for just a few weeks. I love this time of year, because of the colors...I am definitely drawn to Autumn colors (reds, browns, yellows, oranges)...and all of the great festivals that take place in our area every year. We love going to the Fair, Heritage Festival, Shrimp Festival, Pumpkin Patch...you name it, we put it on our to do list! :)
Our theme for the Blog Hop was capturing leaves in our photos and I knew I wanted to find some leaves that were changing over to the Fall colors. That is also a hard thing to do around here, since our leaves usually go from green to dead! HA!! :) But, there are a small number of different trees whose leaves do change to yellow or orange and we just happened to find some that had started changing the other day. My daughter...being the child of a scrapbooking mommy...was happy to cooperate and do a photo shoot for mommy! I had a lot of fun creating the tree for this page and I added a small element of the Chevron pattern on my page, which has become very popular these days!
Here is the sketch I created before starting my layout. Feel free to save it and use it for your own pages, but please mention my name and a link back to my blog would be great!!
