View Full Version : Beautiful Autumn Day Challenge 10/19

Ah Autumn... or Fall depending on what you call it. Either name, its my favorite season. I love the rich colors and smells. The cool air and relaxed feeling.

Have you ever had the perfect Autumn day? My family and I just had one this past weekend. We don't get out together much anymore as my kids are so busy with their own activities. But we had the chance and we took it! Took a little drive up into the mountains west of Tokyo.

Bright blue skies, warm sunshine, cool breeze, smell of burning leaves, changing colors, rice harvest, swans, koi, skipping rocks on the river, fish on a stick! These are the little details of what I will remember about that day.

Your assignment for this challenge is pretty straight forward. Show me - the more photos the better! Tell me - a simple list of the little details, a story about the day, or even a letter to someone about the memories you treasure from that day. Make me feel it - go ahead and use those textured papers and elements you've been eyeing. This is the perfect time! Leaves, branches, canvas, vines, rich colors, etc.


for my page I used the stunning Old Garden Kit by Etc. by Danyale

I love this challenge, Holly! I am a writing tutor (used to be a writing teacher) and I can't tell you how many times I've encouraged students to "show me" rather than just tell me. Of course, I'm usually talking about having them use descriptive language, etc., but I love the idea of this challenge. ;)

Love that sample page, too! It's gorgeous!

Feels like I'm slowly coming out of a blockage now. Maybe I can manage a few of the challenges these last few days of October.

Anyway, here is my take on the autumn challenge

The layouts posted so far are FABULOUS!! I was just checking out your site and challenges. I know that this layout doesn't qualify for any points, and it was actually done as a scraplifting challenge for another site, but when I saw the theme, I just thought I'd share this with you because I'm still tickled pink at how the picture came out. You know how it is - take 100 shots just to get the one where they're all looking the same direction and not running around chasing each other's tails - lol.
