Fall -- Artful Delight Sketch Challenge

I never much cared for fall when I lived in the midwest.  It was too short and was (in my mind) just a reminder of the brutal winter that was just around the corner, lurking and waiting to grab me and hold me in it's cold, icy clutches.  (Well maybe that was a bit over-dramatic but you get the drift!) I did appreciate things however that now living in Florida we do not have....the brilliant fall foliage, crisp temps ("sweater weather"), pumpkin patches and apple orchards. This year I have really been getting into scrapping fall pictures of my family in the midwest and using beautiful fall colors on my pages.  Here is another example:

I used the above sketch from Artful Delight and papers/embelishment from Jillibean Soup to create this pretty fall page. My grandchildren (3 of them anyway) spent last weekend together and one of the fun things they did was go to an apple orchard and pick apples.  The sepia tone of the photograph gave a certain dream-like quality to the page.

You can check out the sketch challenge at Artful Delight HERE.  Leanne has some of the largest and best kits for sale out there (which is why I have been trying for months to win one...LOL) I love them!

It is going to be a rainy weekend here in Florida and I have a number of paper crafting projects planned so I am sure I will be back tomorrow to show you my next creation.



  1. Great layout Sandi!! The Jillibean Soup papers are perfect and I love how you wrapped the twine around your picture! Thanks for joining us at Artful Delight!

  2. Fabulous LO. Love those papers from JBS but I never had a chance to pick them up. Thank you for playing along with Artful Delight this month. :-)

  3. I love your LO, those papers works so well together. Fall or autumn as we call it in the UK has arrived with the golden leaves falling all around and the crisp mornings - one of my favourite times of year.
