What happened to September?

Holy Cow!  It seems I missed a month somewhere along the line.  Last time I looked it was August, next thing I know it's October!

Fall has crept in with a vengeance!  It started just getting a little cool at night and next thing you know the trees are in full autumn colours.  Now the nights are actually cold!  We had a chance to take a 2 day mini vacation doing our annual fall trip.  In search of colour.  And boy, did we find colour!

I could go on posting pictures forever but you get the point ... lol.  I took 340 pictures in 2 days!  I couldn't help myself.  Thank god for digital cameras.  This beautiful piece of the country is only a few hours away from us but we had never explored it before.  The last picture was taken from a tower which originally was used to search for forest fires.  Now it is used as a scenic tower and it's wonderful!

One of things I did on this little trip was collect beautiful leaves. By the time we got home on the 2nd day I had to scan them immediately because they were starting to curl and dry out.  But I was really happy this year with the different colours (yes, I'm Canadian and that's the way we spell it ... lol) and variety I was able to find.  So I thought, I better put these to good use.  So I made a few freebies ... :).

 But before I get to that I want to show you a FUN new kit that just hit the My Memories shop.

Paint My World! is a great kit for scrapping all kinds of layouts.  Whether you've painted a room, a door or a whole house, whether your kids have funs with paints, paint ball pics, painting eggs or painting crafts, this kit is for you!

I had to make 6 previews to show you some of the fun stuff you get with this kit.  You get  EVERYTHING in all 6 previews ...and it's on sale until Oct 31 for only $4.79!

 NOTE:  If you are only interested in the Paint Splatters, they are available separately, (but included in the kit) because everyone love paint splatters!


Ok, so back to my freebie ... so I scanned to leaves and made some borders.  A side border and a full page border.

These are much more detailed in full size, it's hard to show in the small preview.  After all, they are real leaves ... and fresh!  lol

So come on over to my facebook page and get this limited time freebie.  They are exclusively there.  You will also see some layouts that I made with these freebies.
