I'm not ready for summer to be over but I love the colors of fall.  I like the change of the seasons, especially summer to fall.  There's just something about wearing sweaters and closed toe shoes again that makes me happy!  I'm looking forward to cooler, crisper weather, raking leaves and making soups and chili.

I created this layout using the Fiskarscrafts.com September '09 sketch.  The photos were taken during one of my "tagalong with working husband" visits to New York City.  It was a lovely, late October day, a perfect day to be outside enjoying the scenery.  I had decided to explore Greenwich Village and found myself in Washington Square Park.  This squirrel was not afraid of me or anybody else.  Must have been a native Manhattanite!

All pattered paper is from Cloud 9 Outdoors Collection.  The NUTS title is Heidi Grace Harvest Row adhesive alphas.  The rhinestone leaves (on vellum paisley shapes) are from the dollar bin at JoAnn's.  I used Fiskars Leave it to Weaver, Threading Waters, and Diamond border punches, Comma, Comma Chameleon squeeze punch and scallop paper edgers.  The journaling block and Got part of the title were created in MS PowerPoint with the stationary fill background and Bradley Hand font.

Thank you so much for checking in.  Enjoy the last little bit of summer!
