For the Colorful Creations Favorite Things challenge this month you needed to do a layout about something you love about Fall or a Favorite Fall Activity.  I love to watch the changing colors of the leaves and to take rides to see how they have changed.  Being a few hours south of where I used to live, the leaves don't change quite as fast, in fact they are only getting started now.  I wasn't able to get photos of any of the actual leaves but I took a few more of the October photos of me and Michael and put them on a wonderful patterned paper of fall leaves and also accented them by putting some silk leaves on pop dots which I added some sheen to with Perfect Pearls. I distressed the edges of everything with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.  The instructions also were to use warm Fall colors of brown, red, yellow and orange. To create the layout I started with Creative Scrappers Sketch #252.

The Sketch:

I finished it off with some twine and lots of orange bling.  I am also entering this layout in Top Tip Tuesday challenge #113 about the Seasons, Pink Elephant challenge TPE223 for Distressing, Party Time Tuesday #144 Anything Goes, Divas by Design Use some Orange, and Word Art Wednesday #104 Anything Goes.

My Layout:

I am also going to link up at Link up #4 with The Memory Nest.

I have a real crazy day today - layouts to finish, challenges to prepare for November, errands, laundry and getting some odds and ends for my son for Halloween.  So I am off and running.  Have an awesome day and thanks for dropping by.
