Fall is in the Air!

 Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is Fall is in the Air!  Well, not here on the day I write this post!  haha  The high today is predicted is 95 degrees and the heat index is expected to hit 105 or higher!  UGH!!  That's too hot and muggy for me; it's good to be inside writing blog posts!  

I do look forward to fall, as it is definitely my favorite time of year!  I love to put on my boots and go out to the barn to hang with my horses.  I also enjoy hiking, really just walking, at the state parks and viewing the wildlife and leaves.  

That is what inspired this layout in my art journal!  I wanted some pages about what I love about fall.  This digi from Hetty Clare is so perfect and the paper from an old DCWV paper stack seemed to sum up my thoughts and feelings about Fall!
