Celebrate the Wonders of FALL

Hello and welcome to the Webster's Pages WonderFALL blog hop! Thank you so much for stopping by. You won't be disappointed this weekend. If you know me, you know I love Fall! I was just commenting this weekend how amazing the trees look. Being in Pennsylvania during this time of year is just beautiful. It makes me so thankful of the many blessing I have in life. Thankfully all of those memories can be captured with our WonderFALL line.

AND I couldn't be any more excited when I found out I got to scrap Lucy's cutie, Emma! How sweet is she? I think I tell Lucy that every time I comment on her blog, LOL! The WonderFALL "Count Your Blessings" paper was the PERFECT paper to use with the photographs she sent me. We swapped quite a few and I was so prepared to do a multiphoto layout but when I saw her face in this photo and the yellows, I just couldn't resist it. Well, with all of this excitement I have to admit I was nervous, too. Lucy always inspires me with her ability as an artist so I tried to really think about color on this layout. When I knew I wanted to accent the yellow, I was immediately drawn to the blue on the opposite end of the color spectrum. Plus, since I have boys I am good at blue, LOL! I hope you like it!

Then I kept thinking of the title....I mean, when you have a cutie patootie like this...every season is your favorite! :)
You Are My Favorite Time of the Year



The Glimmer Mist is Lemon Zest...I love it against the rich blue. Lots of hand cutting on here, layers, stitching, a tab punch, and I ran my letters through my Cuttlebug using wax paper, and I layered the bloomer with part of a whimsie...


Punch is from Kreaxions!!!

How very adorable this is, Ellen! Love how you accented the yellow in the photo with the yellow and teals of the paper. The misting on the background is really eye catching, and I love your cut work and layered whimsy/Bloomer. Great use of the die cut paper, too. Beautiful!
