Welcome Autumn

Here is a picture of my kids and I in the forest near our house on that warm and sunny October day last week. The warmth is long gone but the memory of that day will live on, with this Autumn layout!!
I based this layout on a Page Maps sketch (see below) and I used the October Prima Product Palette for the colours. I wish I would have all those gorgeous  products on that palette (see below). Those flowers and embellishments look amazing. However I had to raid my stash for orange and purple  Prima flowers to use on this layout. I realize now I don't use a lot of orange and/or purple on my layouts. My layouts tend to be neutral with pinks, blues and greens. It was fun to get out of my colour comfort zone and make this layout. I sprayed a Dusty attic border with purple mists and I love how it turned out.


Here is the Page Maps sketch:

And here is the gorgeous Prima products!! aren't those flowers gorgeous????

Here are some closeups:
