Autumn

Happy to have you drop in! How was your weekend? Did you partake in any fall activities? This weekend my boys and I went to our favorite pumpkin patch, Hill Ridge Farms. It's a wonderful, family friendly, activity packed day at the farm. There is a train, long tunnel slide, pony rides, yummy eats and a hay ride through the woods. And that's just the start of it! Each year, they add something new! Now there's a giant corn crib, an old fashioned fort with tee pee, a big hay jump house, face painting and water duck races! It's quite a place to spend an afternoon!

Today I would normally be getting back to work after a full and fun weekend, but my husband and I are taking a day off, just the two of us, to go to the NC State Fair. This is our third year of doing this! We get to be like a couple of kids walking the fair hand-in-hand doing and seeing whatever we please. Ah...I still love to go on dates with my guy after 18 years of marriage!

Okay, enough with the family update. How about a couple crafty shares? I have two hybrid pages that I created from kits just released last week at Two Peas in a Bucket.


This first page entitled 'Autumn' is created with 'October Past' from a new designer Hazel Olive Designs. I love the rich colors of the papers included in the kit so I used several and gave them all punched boarders.


My photo is of a pumpkin display at my favorite Garden Supply center and gift shop in Cary.  If you happened to visit my blog when I was sharing some of my Halloween decorations, this was the store I got many of our little spiders and spooky things from.


I went a little crazy with the stitching! But it's so worth it! I really love the look of the stitched title!


I did a bit of stitching on this page too. I used another awesome kit 'Sincerely' by Polka Dot Pixels for this page.


All the papers and accents in this grouping (except for the green postage stamp) are from the kit!


The photo, a suitcase full of vintage post cards, is perfect for this kit! It's a picture my friend took while we were visiting the Liberty Antiques Festival a few weeks back.

Okay, I believe I've taken up enough of your time...so precious it is! I think you for spending a little of it with me! I hope you have enjoyed my pages! Tomorrow is a Digital Doodles Tuesday and the design team wanted to do something different so you will have to come see what they asked to do! :) Hope to see you then! Have a super day! Kathy
