Autumn layouts

Good morning! Today we have a thin layer of snow, it's just below zero degrees Celsius and it was pitch black at 7 am when I went to work. Winter indeed. But let us remember the beautiful fall that past so quickly. I'm sharing two October layouts made with papers from 6''x6'' paper pads.
The first layout uses four 2011 papers from Bo Bunny's "Forever Fall" collection as a . This is a collection that I have regretted buying since the moment I got it. I love the colors and the style of pattern but since each sheet is like a little piece of art with patterns that has a very distinct edge to them I think they are more suitable for cardmaking. Now I've sold half of the pad on Internet auction and I'll try and use up the sheets that are left. Perhaps I'll try some fuzzy cutting.
This next layout, with photos from a mushroom picking walk in the woods, has papers from Simple Stories' "Say Cheese" collection. I took three papers and cut them into 2'' squares, since they are dubble sided I actually got six different styles to work with and I placed them kind of randomly on a black piece of cardstock. The woodgrain blocks behind the photos are pieces of cardstock that I've embossed and chalked.
I have been very creative during the weekend and made several layouts for our albums so I will have new things to show you every day this week! And I'm longing sooo for my new stuff to arrive!
Thank you so very much for visiting me in my blog! Have a nice day!
