Hello friends. As I post this, I'm working on getting our family ready for a trip to visit our daughter and then hang in the White Mountains for a while. We'll be visiting Maddie for the first time since her treatment began. After that, we'll travel to the high country of Arizona and take in a bit of fall color (I hope, should God have been busy putting it on display) and a bit of fishing, hiking and relaxation. (do we know how to do that??)
I've got my stack of reading material all planned and ready to go! That is, after all, the most important bit.
I'm planning to take the Studio Calico photography class so I'm hoping to be able to participate in that while I'm away and use some of the ideas while we're on our trip.
So, this little layout will have to tide all you wonderful readers over until I get back in a while! I'll miss you! You all make each day brighter with your sweet comments. You do know that don't you?! I read every single one! I love them! It's such a good feeling to share something that you love with others who love it just as much!!
Since I'm heading up to hopefully see some fall color this week, I thought I'd share this one with you in the hopes it will mean good luck for me and my camera as we seek out the changing aspens in the White Mountains! Wish me luck!
This layout features one of the latest Lily Bee Designs collections, Autumn Spice. It's full of rich, warm colors and easy to use patterns. Honestly, I'm not a big fan of themey papers so the Lily Bee papers suit me perfectly since they'll blend with most anything I want to use.
I have to just briefly tell you about this photo. I took it last winter as part of my December Daily project. Right in the middle of December because fall color, if it happens at all (you have to search far and wide to find any trees that have leaves that will change in the desert) happens in December. So I was at Target and they had these beautiful oak trees in the parking lot.
They were a blaze of reds and browns and I had to pull out my big camera, which happened to be with me, to snap a few pics. This photo in particular made my heart sing. How is it that you can capture such an image in the middle of a parking lot? But I did. Soon, I need to blow this up on canvas and hang it on my wall. It makes me that happy!
You all have a wonderful week and I'll be back before you know it!
