Thankful Blessings

I'm just loving this new fall collection that Little Yellow Bicycle sent me to create with. And let me tell ya, fall is a welcome site about now. We're still in the mid-90's here in Texas so the thought of cooler weather is exciting. Key word is cooler, not cold though. This new collection is very versatile, from scrapping memories of home to the obvious fall events.



I chose to scrap about my cute little Indian at her Thanksgiving program at school. They dressed up as Indians and Pilgrims and had a lovely feast. They sang songs and were just WAY too cute!


This collection has an amazing assortment of leaves, from die cuts, to chipboard, fabric and sticker leaves, they are wonderful. The colors matched the feathers on my daughter's costume perfectly so I scattered them around her photos and added a tree limb at the top to create the swirling, falling leaves effect.

The title was a breeze with the new die cut words. I just stitched over it in brown thread to give it a little extra oomph and then journaled below.

So, what's the weather like in your neck of the woods?  Is fall setting in yet or is it still hot or if you're on the other side of the world, maybe it's Spring/Winter. Hmmmm. 

I'd love to know what you think and would love it even more if you'd visit me on the Little Yellow Bicycle blog TODAY!

Lovely, I'm currently filling a scrapbook and had run out of design ideas. I just love how you decorated yours specially the stitch which had suited the autumn leaves. Better get working with my haberdashery kit.
