Autumn is Here Blog Hop Day 2

Well it was a summer day here again. I keep crossing my fingers that we will not get the Indian Summer this year. I am really wanting Fall to start. I know that means Winter is not far behind, but I like Winter as well. I have only 3 seasons that I truly like and Summer isn't really one of them. I think if I lived somewhere that the Summers were not so dang hot, I might change my mind. It also doesn't help that I don't like Misquito's and they are abundant here during Summer. Well enough, Fall will be here when Mother Nature deams it time.

Well there are 14 very talented ladies along with myself that are participating in the hops. They had some really awesome projects yesterday, so be prepared for some creativity for today on those who are doing a different post for today.

I am offering BLOG CANDY. To be part of the drawing for the 1 3/8 Square Punch by Stampin Up you will need to do the following:

1) Be a follower or become one.
2) Leave a comment on todays or tomorrows post
3) Please leave a comment on each of the participants blogs.

Ok on to my project:

Autumn Layout:

Again I used papers from an old paper pack from CTMH. It is one of my favorites and will be sad when I have no more of it left.

Pardon the inking on this Title. My little one was trying her hand at it. It makes this layout a bit more special for me.

These are from 2 swaps I was in back in either 2008 or 2009. I thought that they where just cute.

I know a bit backwards, but this is the 1st page of the layout. It is called working on very little sleep and trying to finish my Halloween Mini I am working on.

Again my little did the inking of the leaves, but I like it. The saying was something I had from years and years ago and decided to use. Not sure who the author is, but it is perfect. It reads like this:

"Autumn winds begin to blow, colored leaves fall fast and slow.
Twirling, whirling all around 'til at last they touch the grown."

The middle embellishment is from a very old Jolee's package I had stashed. But the other 2 on the sides are inches I made for a swap.

Again, a bit backwards on how the pictures are loaded, but what can I say, mistakes happen.

Well hope you enjoyed my Green but Autumn layouts this weekend. I look forward to seeing you on my next hop Halloween/Trick or Treat on October 15th & 16th, 2011.

Now you need to head on over to Janice's blog to continue on your
