Autumn and Flowers

Hello friends

Yesterday was the first day of Autumn, I took my regular walk with 
Bella in 'Bella Woods' and to be honest everything is still lush and green.
An occasional leaf was falling but the sun was still shining, such a bonus for this time of year.
Our regular path ....
Bella has surprised us all and made very good friends with a Rottweiler puppy,
his owner walks him each day and Bella constantly looks out for him!

As it feels quite summery, I can probably get away with sharing a holiday layout
that is being featured in this month's Scrapbook Magazine!
I was asked to feature Sweet Lilac silk flowers and I really enjoyed mixing them with 
die cuts.  I firstly spritzed the distressed edged white 12 x 12 card with glimmer mist.
I assembled a geometric panel with My Mind's Eye - Cut and Paste papers, 
adding Classic Scallop Edge to soften the edges and then started to 
add plenty of flowers with pearls in the middle.
If I do not include journalling on the front of my layout I always write something on 
the back, date, place, memories etc.
This was a wonderful villa in Turkey where I stayed some years ago.

I have more layouts to share with you soon.

Take care friends, back soon.

Good morning Christine
Bella's wood looks beautiful. The weather has been very kind to us so far this month although we had torrential rain last night here in the North West.
Love the scrapbook page - I could feel the heat radiating from the page.
Enjoy your day

Hi Christine. Thanks for the lovely pics of "Bellas Woods". I love watching the seasons change with you : )
How sweet Bella and her friend will look as he gets bigger.
I love the layout, the flowers in the pic stand out so well, I admire how you choose the right embellishments, papers, colours etc to make this happen, you are so clever. Have a good day. Take care.

Morning Christine,
I agree it's been such a lovely September, make the winter seem shorter. Great photos of Bella and her woods. Lovely scrapbook page.

Hello Christine. Lovely photo of Bella's Wood. We are lucky still to have some sunshine at this time of year. Pretty page too although scrapbooking just doesn't do it for me as I'm just so unorganised and all my photos are still sitting on the computer uncatalogues etc. Maybe one day. xxMargaretxx

Hi Christine
I love the woods that you walk Bella in. I like seeing how the seasons change. Love the layout that you have created, wish I could do the same.

Not to sure why my comment posted as anonymous instead of pats witney on the above.

I was mystified about the announcement of it being the first day of Autumn yesterday. At school we were taught it was the 21st that the seasons changed. Your walk certainly looks better than it does in the winter.

Morning Christine, Fabulous piccies of Bella's walk and brilliant that you got some sunshine. I hope Bella continues to be 'friends' when the puppy becomes 'full grown', but she will be able to run rings around him then haha !!
Your layout it lovely, I still haven't started scrapbooking yet, and this was to be my 'year' to start haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Great pictures. I love the sunlight through the trees! Strange that there's not much autumn colour about yet. I hear it's getting warmer again tomorrow. Lovely scrapbook page, beautifully co-ordinated.

Elaine said...

Thank you Christine for sharing the lovely scrapbook page. I sometimes write on the back of my photos but haven't got as far as thinking to do the same on a scrapbook page.
Always enjoy the walk with Bella.
Take care.
