Falling Leaves

Hi Everyone... 

It's Penny here.....wishing you a happy end of the month to you...

The other day as I walked home from the station, I was startled from my daydream by a leaf which fluttered down right in front of me....as if to remind me that autumn had arrived.....
I noticed how the leaves had started to change their colour and it made me think of the countless leaves of previous autumns that graced our footpath every day...and the frustration of keeping our garden clean....

To be honest, I do prefer the summer months......but there's something special about gazing into a garden filled with the rich tones of autumn and a ground covered with dancing leaves...but then there's the dreadful clean up chores which nobody wants to do.....

My three girls had the enviable task of sweeping up the leaves with their dad...and they loved every minute of it.....NOT....

This scrapbook layout shows my middle daughter in the throws of sweeping up the leaves....I chose this photo because I don't think she would have been impressed if I chose the one of her pulling faces.....



For the background, I chose the Orange Crackle Glitter Cardstock from the Fall Collection.

I matted and layered my photo with the reverse side of the Boo Words Glitter Cardstock and the Witch Accessories Glitter Cardstock from the Halloween Collection and used the same cardstock to cut leaves. Additional leaves were added using the Fall rub-on stickers. 

Next, I die cut the 'Autumn' part of the title and the film reel from the reverse of the Boo Words Glitter Cardstock and cut swags from the Witch Accessories Glitter Cardstock and the reverse side of the Honeycomb Daisy Glitter Cardstock 

I painted and added some dimensional words for the title and finished off with white paint splashes.

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day.... 
Penny

I love this, the fall leaves fluttering down! But, in our 2 years we lived in Africa, i so missed the fall, the cool air, falling leaves, and yes even the work. She is beautiful with rake in hand.
