Have you seen the Fall issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine?  It’s jam-packed with all kinds of crafty goodness.

Along with my Double the Fun article, I wrote a piece called “Completely Cardstock” and designed a few projects. 

Here is the picture frame and matching card, using Core’dinations wood grain cardstock. 

I took an old 5 x 7 picture frame and made my own faux wood grain design with paper and ink.

 By adding a few Sizzix die cut leaves and twigs from outside, I have a nice piece of Fall decor.

I used the Sizzix “Tattered Leaves” die and Core’dinations Tim Holtz Kraft-Core “Shattered” card stock.


I take photos of my kids every Fall, and this year took a lot of begging….more than usual.  But I did get a few shots of them.

I actually prefer this ‘outtake’ with their cousin.

And I was happy to get this nice pic of Opa’s birthday, which we celebrated along with Thanksgiving last weekend.

It has been beautiful Fall weather here, with gorgeous temps and the leaves are turning….

My husband and I went for a walk along the ravine in front of our house.  Breathtaking!

It’s these quiet moments that make me appreciate the beauty of nature in the Fall.

 I have to say that I’m very sad to see summer go, but the warmth of this Fall season has made it easier to say good bye to summer.


The colours have been magnificent against our bright blue sky, and the days are filled with sunshine.

Maybe some day, Autumn will become my favourite season after all.
