Fall, Beautiful Fall!

Happy Tuesday, my friends!
Today I'm sharing another one of the projects I completed on Saturday. This project was inspired by the season. We have had such a fantastic Fall! I'm not a fan of summer heat but when you have those warm summer temperatures at this time of year it's a different story! The addition of cool evenings and crisp mornings are a beautiful thing indeed! We have been taking full advantage of the weather and enjoying ourselves immensely! It all began with a Riverboat Cruise down the South Saskatchewan River. I took LOTS of pictures but I'll just share a couple with you here. :o)
Anyways, I decided I better make a mini album for all my photos and I think this will be the cover. The plan is to actually print out my photos and fill the album this time to show you. Yeah...we'll see how that goes! lol
Hope you all have a beautiful day! :o)

Materials Used:
Papers: Colorbok - Cardstock,

This photo shows three more bridges:

We had a little company on the river:

I hope you enjoyed a peek at my wonderful day! I hope to share more of my fantastic fall soon! 
I might even be back later today with my LATE Hymn and Scripture Page! :o)

I love that garden cart you have embossed then sanded over! The fall colors of the papers stand out but that embossed image really pops out and I just love it.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your Riverboat adventure. Thanks for sharing bits of your trip with us.

Love you - Leslie
