Harvest at Equinox

Obviously I am denial about the changing season here. This is my first fall page and technically, it was a few weeks back so still in summer. We are just starting with leaves changing, colder temps and the whatnot.

And, I have a few pages from summer to still finish up but dragging my feet for some reason. I think I'm not ready! And I love fall!

This page was a snap with the photo collage from Picasa. I am so glad Helen wrote about making one a while back 'cause now I'm really into it. Maybe that will inspire me to get a few last summer pages out of my system! In fact, go check out her latest page as she used one again. I really like it!

This one didn't use any challenge or anything in particular, it was just a fun page with some of my new to me Karen paper. I did use my sizzix to cut some leaves out of extra paper I had (can't tell you which, think it might be Bo Bunny) using the Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves die. I did use some new seam binding from Stampin' Up that I love! And some of the huge stash of orange flowers I have from Helen.

My favorite photo is the one with my daughter that I turned black and white in Picasa with a focal point in color. She is such a clown somedays! LOVE it! Expect just maybe to see if again at some point...

You can see it to the left. Sorry for the yucky photo, but it's supposed to rain here for another couple of days, so flash is what I have to use.

Alright, have a good one!


  1. Super cool page! Love the photo of Lexi - would be a great one for her personal album too! We don't have a fall. Well we call it Autumn but blink & you'll miss it :)

  2. I love all those leafs, but for some reason the plain white one with paper lines is my favorite. It just really stands out with unique qualities. :D
    All the pics are wonderful, but I agree, the b&w of your daughter is my fave!
    Beautiful layout, Mitralee :D
    I hear in the UK they are calling for snow next week.....OMG...enjoy the changing leaves while we can I guess.

  3. Fabulous photos and wonderful layout! is still summer weather real sign of Autumn/fall!!

  4. You've come up with another winner, Mitra. Love the colors. The photos are great, looks like everyone is having fun. You are right, Lexi is a fun loving gal. Luke too, but a bit more reserved. Wonderful, can't stop looking at every little detail.

  5. Fabulous layout.. love how your photos tell the story!!

  6. I love the Autumn colours of your rich and beautiful. The photo grid looks fab, and I love that you changed one of the photos to black and white.


I LOVE comments. Come on. Leave me one. They make me smile!
