A couple weeks ago we did a road trip out west to see my family.. squeezing out another week or so of summer, as the weather was already turning in the North. Desperate not to surrender my summer days just yet. Travelling through the mountains is one of my most favourite drives. It's natural beauty is awe inspiring. The mountains humble you with their size. The mountains signal that I'm almost home..how I miss being surrounded by them.
Driving at night with only my thoughts and quiet music keeping me company while my guy slept. The stars shining so brightly in the inky blackness of the sky.. the mountain tops a faint outline against the starry background.The big dipper so low I could have reached out and grabbed it. It was a magical feeling. So peaceful. Most definitely a soul refreshing journey.
Now we are fully immersed into one of my most favourite seasons; fall. Today was the quintessential perfect fall day; beautiful sunshine, warm temps, gorgeous yellows, orange and red leaves.. crunchy under our feet as I walked the puppy.. Fall means Halloween movies and fat orange pumpkins. I love all things Halloween inspired.
As I fondly bid goodbye to Summer, I welcome Fall with open arms. My projects of late have been inspired by the season and Halloween. I recently acquired Crafty Secrets Creating with Vintage Halloween images, and all of my projects use digi papers, embellies from this amazing CD.
SOOO many great papers to play with.. these are just a few! I made up a little pocket for my Mr Owl tag.. Gosh how I love that 'Broom parking 5c" sign.. If you can get your hands on the Crafty Secrets CD I highly recommend you do!
I'm off to do some more creating! Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my fellow Canadians!
