Sketches In Thyme #345

Hello, hello! Good Wednesday morning to you! The weather is finally starting to warm back up to normal temperatures after a few days of below normal cold temperatures. No wonder it feels like we go from summer straight to winter when we skip the 60's and 70's and go right to the 30's and 40's! Hopefully, normal fall temps are here to stay for a little while!

I am featured today over on the Sketches In Thyme blog with my take on Sketch #345. Here is a look at the sketch, courtesy of Jenessa:

I am still working on getting older fall photos scrapped, and I am still working with my September Counterfeit Kit Challenge (you can read all about it here). I had filled my kit with lots of fall papers in hopes of getting some of them used up and I am sticking with it until that kit is used!

Since taking a family photo in front of the pretty trees is tradition, it gets a little hard to come up with a title that hasn't been used over and over. I decided to go with the date of the photo as my title for something a little different.

I used a mix Fancy Pants, Simple Stories, October Afternoon, and I'm not really sure of where the green is from, I had to pull it from my stash as I had none in my kit. I fussy cut the leaves out of one of the Fancy Pants papers and the printed wood veneer pieces are from Pinkfresh - Oh My Heart. I added some gold hearts and gold splatters, too.  

I decided to add in more banners as opposed to the squares at the top of the page. The squares and the border strip at the top of the page just didn't work together well for me.

Head on over to Sketches In Thyme for inspiration every single day of the week. We would love to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you have a great day!


  1. It's a beautiful Fall page and great work with the Sketches in Thyme Sketch, Lori! I love your choice of papers along with the misting! :)

  2. Great pic! Look at Shane, he is as tall as your hubby! Love the colors!

  3. Love the colors; they're Fall-ish, but not TOO Fall-ish (if that makes sense)!

  4. Fabulous Fall layout Lori! I love your design!
