Ode to Autumn

Here's what I've been working on for the past week or so, I had so much fun making my "hand-made" Summer book a few months ago that I decided to do one for Fall, my most beloved of Seasons. Again, ripped out pages from the Fall Toast catalogue (the clothes are too expensive but they have beautiful photography, and great non-glossy paper to work with!), and used very little photos, just added bits and pieces and scraps and tried to get as much journaling in as possible.

[Journaling is probably the hardest thing for me, it's something I want to improve on, so this is good practice.]

I'm going back to "regular" scrapping now, I cleaned off my scrap desk and re-arranged some things, added some much needed light, so I'm hoping that it will make me sit down and get more layouts done. I was looking at the RV kit for October and it looks soo fun, I wish I could play with it! Unfortunately money is going to become a little tight in the next few months, so luxuries such as that must be put aside. Besides, I have plenty of scrap goodies to play with, I haven't even used everything from my kits I got in March and July!

Tonight is Heather and I's first night of Halloween fun. Last night we went and got all our supplies to have a crafty night (skulls and glitter, oh my), and we are going to watch the first in our series of scary/Halloween-ey movies, "Sleepy Hollow". I've never seen it but it's Johnny Depp and Tim Burton set in New England in the 1700 (1800?)s, how could I not like it?!

Our candy bucket has officially made an appearance in our house, which means it's Halloween time, and I love it. I bought some super creepy jelly cockroaches and spiders and rats for my windowsill, I'll post some pics of it when I get it all done, it's going to be spooky!

We are heading to McAdam this weekend to visit my brother in law and sister in law, and 2 little nephews, one of whom I've never met, so that's very exciting. I'm going to bring my camera and hope that the weather is nice so that we can take a walk (McAdam is in the middle of nowhere in the woods, but at this time of year that's a good thing), and I can snap some much needed Fall pics.

Well I suppose that's all, Happy Thursday everyone!

I must admit that I love your work with the scrapbooks. It really is very good, exactly how I would imagine a 'proper' scrapbook.
