The Wonders of Fall in your Memory Forever

This is the Autumn picture we took this weekend. The trees are already changing colours in our neighbourhood and the forests look so beautiful. We've also had an abnormally warm weather in the middle of October so it was odd to see the leaves changing colours while we were wearing shorts and t-shirts. I love this picture of my kids on this white fence. The white gives the background a huge contrast.
I used a sketch from Stuck on you Sketches as an inspiration. When I inverted the sketch (as you can see below) it reminded me of a hanging garden. That's what I tried to simulate here with the yellow flowers. I attached each flower to a piece of floss and tied it to the top to make it look as if the flowers were hanging from the top. I added some dragonflies and butterflies because its not a garden without them. You can see the original sketch on the Stuck on you Sketches blog.
I'm also using this layout for a Scrap That challenge in their forum. The challenge is to make an autumn layout and this is perfect for it.
I'm also entering this layout to the Bo Bunny challenge. The challenge was to make a 3D- layout. I used 3D butterflies and dragonflies as well as used pop dots to raise the hanging flowers. Finally I used floss makes it look like actual vines hanging from the top which gives it the final 3D look.

Thank you for visiting my blog
