Another Autumn Quiz

No long post today...I have class in about an hour and haven't finished my homework yet!




Your Autumn Sense is Sound



You love that autumn is the time that everything starts to quiet down, and you like to sit back and enjoy the silence.

You have cultivated a love for the smaller sounds of fall - a leaf crunching, a fire crackling, or a lone bird chirping.



You enjoy that you can go for a early morning or late evening walk and not hear another soul around.

The best sounds are the ones you have to strain to hear, like the gentleness of trees barely moving in the wind.

Autumn is in the Air!

I adore autumn...it's my favorite time of year. And therefore, autumn scrap kits are probably my favorite kits of all...they are so hard to resist! I love the rich colors and the elements of an autumn kit (leaves, trees, pumpkins, etc).

A few of my CT designers have put together some darling autumn kits that I want to share with you!
First, my newest CT is Trixie Scraps at Scrap Matters...yay!!! I was so thrilled to be invited to join her team...and what great timing...just in time for new autumn kits, woot!
First off, check out Indian Summer, which released today and is on sale right now!

Here's what I've done with the kit so far...



Last week, Trixie Scraps released another super cute fall kit, Cute Lil' Punkin. I love the non-traditional colors mixed in with the more traditional fall colors...makes this kit alot more versatile!

Here are two of my pages...


I'll be back in a bit with more...I've a sick little one to watch over today. Until later, happy scrapping!

Shopping---yikes!

What kind of shopper am I? Well, honestly, I used to be the type of person that had finished Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving even rolled around. But then I got married...and all of that changed. My hubby is more of a last-minute shopper, and since he is the one with the money (lol, sometimes anyway), I basically have to adjust. Our budget hasn't allowed for us to shop very early. I'm hoping to NOT wind up shopping on Christmas Eve like last year, but whenever I get it done, I'll manage! :)

Pumpkin Time

It's autumn and I am SOOOO ready to go to the pumpkin patch! But it's rainy, so that trip will have to wait. I guess until then, this quiz will have to wait...

Ummm....yuk...



You Are a Pumpkin Latte



You are energetic and fun loving. You get into the spirt of every season, but fall is definitely your favorite time.

You are excited for the change of seasons, and you love the spirit and togetherness it brings.



You love to do everything related to fall - whether it's celebrating Halloween and Thanksgiving or going to check out the changing leaves.

You truly immerse yourself in the season. You always miss autumn when it's gone, but you make the most of it while it's here.

Yay, autumn is here!

Just popping in to share a bit...the weather has turned SO nice recently! There's a breeze in the air and the temperatures are dropping. I LOVE autumn in Oklahoma! The state fair has come and gone (and we had a great time), and the leaves are starting to change colors. Now, when I lived in Texas, I would have said spring was my favorite time of year...but up here, spring is tornado weather, so that puts a damper on that season. So I'd have to say that fall is definitely my favorite time of year, and here's why:
1. the weather!
2. Rachel's birthday
3. costume time
4. pumpkin patches and hayrides
5. Thanksgiving
6. holiday decorations
