September's Here

And I'm loving that autumn, my favourite season, is just around the corner :)

In preparation of the cold weather to come I finished making this for Paul at the weekend:
Now he knows I'm a scrapbooker, he knows I have a blog so why, when I said I was taking a picture of his newly made hat, didn't he smile?!

I loved knitting this so will definitely be making some more.

I realised, when having a tidy up of the photos on my computer, that I've done three weekly challenges over on UKScrappers that I have shared yet! Very slack of me I know :)

This challenge was to use black, use something you got for free and to scrap a celebration:
The picture isn't good but it is off my sister, Jemma, having her first dance with her new husband.
I added the pale blue buttons because that was the colour of the bridesmaid's dresses.

The next challenge was to scrap about the home, use our favourite colour, a list and stars.  I don't have any pictures of my home so I came up with this:
I even tried a bit of painting on it!
And the list were just a few thoughts, feelings and reminders of the day.

The last challenge for August was to follow a sketch, scrap a holiday theme and use butterflies or blooms:
Pictures of Maddie in front of a beautiful sunset in Weymouth, eight years ago.
I went for butterflies and blooms, although not the butterflies I wanted thanks to Martha Stewart and her dodgy punches!  Two different stores, over 100 miles apart had the same butterfly punch and, what do you know, the same fault too :(
Never mind, the super cheap butterfly stamp I bought yonks ago is working just fine :)

Today is the start of Learn Something New Every Day and I can't wait to get out there with my camera and notebook and notice things I overlook most of the time.

Have a fabby day

I love that hat - it's a really nice shade of blue. Oh, yes, I'm an Autumn person too. I love it!

Your third page is absolutely gorgeous, in fact I know I am going to have to make one is similar colours as I love it so much.
