Hello Fall!

Well, it's still in the upper 80s/low 90s here in Texas, but Fall is supposedly here! I LOVE Fall photos, and every year at our church's pumpkin patch, I take tons of photos of my boys with the pumpkins and various photo areas we have. I love these photos of my little guy. The second I opened my October kit box from The Scrap Room and saw this gorgeous collection by Simple Stories, I immediately printed out these photos and got to scrapping:
Isn't he a cutie pie?! The cutest little punkin' in the patch, if I do say so myself. ;)

Scared ya, didn't I? ;) I made this little Boo! sign for one of my projects this month for The Scrap Room. I took a little decorative piece of wood, used Mod Podge to adhere some patterned paper to it, and inked/distressed the edges. Then, I cut the "Boo!" artwork on my Silhouette and adhered it to the paper. I gave everything a good coat of Mod Podge and then stapled ribbon to the back to create this hanging wooden sign. Easy, peasy!
Speaking of Halloween...my boys still don't know what they want to be yet, so still no costumes. Sigh... Happy Saturday, everyone!

Fall 2-pager

Good morning, everyone! The temperature has cooled down a bit here in Texas, which can only mean one thing...FALL is here!!! :) I love Fall....but I always get major alleriges at the beginning of Fall, like right now. My eyes are puffy, itchy, red, and watery, and my nose is all stuffy. But hey....I can actually go outside without sweating to death, so that's good! Every Fall, we host a Pumpkin Patch at my church as a fundraiser to raise money for missions. We send supplies to churches and an orphanage in Mexico, as well as support other local and worldwide missions. It feels good to give to such worthy causes. I hope to take a missions trip sometime in the future. Anyway, the October kit from The Scrap Room is just bursting with AMAZING Fall colors, and I couldn't wait to dig into the Simple Stories "Harvest Lane" collection that was assigned to me for my 2-pager. I used Pumpkin Patch photos from last year and came up with this:
Happy Fall, everyone!
