October Challenge YOUrself Blog #46 - FALL!

Hello there Scrappy Friends!  Fall is here Y'all!  and that is exactly what the Challenge YOUrself Blog's Challenge #46 is all about!  

Please use this "Mood Board" below to INSPIRE you to create a Layout - with a photo of YOU, and play along with us this month!

One of my favorite seasons is Fall, and one of my favorite things to do is to cook and host Thanksgiving for our family.  I chose a photo of our 2016 Thanksgiving celebration that I took with my "selfie stick" of course!  I hope I've inspired you to join us this month, over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!

THIS IS US - after stuffing ourselves with traditional Thanksgiving fare.. it is time to play games!! 

Below are a few close ups for you:

I am LOVING how these leaves came out - I have had a 12x12 sheet of kraft die-cut leaves by Anna Griffin for YEARS!!  I cut a corner of it out and had a blast coloring them in with Ranger Distress Stains and my foam applicator! So much inky fun!
If you've been here before, you know I love to create a pocket behind my photos and slip a journaling card into it, with notes and memories of the day!

I hope you will join us over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog this month!  I can't wait to see what "MOOD" you will be in!
