The Splendor of Autumn (win a class kit)

I know that many of us are already gearing up for the holidays but I always find myself wishing that autumn would last just a few more weeks longer. It really is my most favorite season. I love the changing color of the leaves and watching them fall gently from the branches. I like breathing in the fresh, crisp air (now don't get me wrong - I don't mean cold air just a bit cooler than the heat of summer!) And, I love the smell of pumpkin pie and scented candles that make me feel all cozy inside.

So, when Imaginisce came out the Apple Cider collection I was in love!!! Truly. They tugged on my heart's strings big time!

I decided to use this collection for one of my classes that I've been teaching throughout this fall. I also incorporated some wonderful Core'dinations cardstock which has been one of our manufacturer partners. They are definitely a perfect match!




So, do you have some fall photos that you need to get scrapbooked? Then this is your lucky day!!

I'm going to be giving away 2 of my "Autumn Spendor" Class kits!!! 1 kit to a lucky reader on this blog and 1 kit to a lucky read on my blog! (kit comes complete with everything you need to create 3 single paged layouts; PDF instructions will be emailed to the lucky winner along with colored photos)

My favorite part of fall? Apple cider and apple picking :) I love apple cider, and it is always so disappointing during other times of the year when it is not available so that would definitely be the best part of fall. Thanks for the giveaway!

I love the cold snap in the air and the crunch of the leaves underfoot. Plus the smells in the woods. Everything is so tart!

Cynthia B. said...

I live in Houston, Texas, so "fall" isn't as much about changing leaves as it is about lower humidity and lower temps! No longer do I have to put on bug spray as soon as I take my kids to the bus stop, and I can even put on a sweatshirt on some days - love it!
Thanks for the chance to win a beautiful class kit!

lhinnerichs said...

Is there anything better than making your way through golden, fire red, and orange trees on your way to the apple orchard? Maybe, but when you sink you teeth into a crisp sweet apple fresh off the tree you know life cannot get any better than this!

How can I pick just one thing to lave about fall. I live in Vermont and fall is the best season of the year (in my opinion). I love the colors, the smell and sound. The moderate temperatures, with cold crisp mornings and warm days. The leaves crunching under foot, the smells of fresh air and wood fires burning. I could go on and on..Fall rocks!

Shari said...

Fall reminds me of falling in love. Snuggling up with with your honey on a cold night. Watching a movie. Drinking hot chocolate. The smell of a fireplace burning. The beautiful fall color on the hill side trees.

fall is my favorite season because it is the absolute best time of year to ride horses. All the animals are busy, the air is cooler which is easier on me and my horse, and everybody is happier in my parts because the harvest is coming in and they are seeing the fruits of their labor.........I would love fall to last all year long!!
