Sketches In Thyme #165 - Happy Fall

Happy Friday! Thanks to a teacher work day, the boys have the day off from school. We are looking forward to a three day weekend without any plans!

Today is my day to share a layout using the week three sketch over at Sketches In Thyme. Here is the fun sketch from Shawn that I got to work with:

And my layout:

I have so many older fall photos of my kids, and my nieces and nephews, that I still need to scrap. I usually get pretty excited to scrap seasonal photos when the new season starts - probably because of all the pretty new collections - and I was happy to scrap these photos of my niece from 2010.

When my kids were little, my Mom and Dad had the best backyard for playing in the leaves. They had several big trees and we would all get together one weekend to help them rake the leaves. We had good intentions of raking leaves, but what generally happened was the kids played in them, and then we went home - with good intentions of going back to get the job done! Sometimes that happened. Sometimes it didn't!

I absolutely love the colors in the new Carta Bella - Fall Blessings paper collection. I knew with all of the fall photos I have yet to scrap, that it would be perfect and put to good use, so you'll probably be seeing a lot more of it in the weeks to come!

Be sure to play along with any or all of our sketches this month, and you will have a chance at winning this awesome set of stamps. You have until the 30th to link up over on the Sketches In Thyme blog.

Here's a look at the week one sketch:
September 1-7 Sketch #163
And the week two sketch:
September 8-14 Sketch #164
And check back on Tuesday for the week four sketch. I hope you can find some time to play along with our sketches this month!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
