Meet the New GDT's

 We are so lucky to have 3 new Guest Designers joining us for challenges in October and November!

First off let me introduce you to Ashley!

Hello, I’m so excited to be guest designing! I’ve been scrapbooking since I was 16 - before scrapbooking was this hobby that it is now! I’be been married for two years & we have two dogs. I also love to read, work in the garden, & take beach vacations.

Next up we have Monique!

I am a 51yo single mother of a 17yo handsome teen and 2 fur babies.  I live in Columbia Maryland USA. I am sweet (by nature), ethnic (by design), and blessed (by God).  I am a paper crafter who loves to make scrapbook layouts, cards, paper purses, loaded envelopes, loaded hoops, tags, tag flips, pocketletters, and etc.  I am a published crafter and published poet. 

And last but not least, Becca!

My crafting, art, and sewing 'bug' started back at age 9 when I joined 4-H club. The paper-crafting blog 'bug' started around 2010 after participating in some message boards for a website that morphed into jumping on the 'blog' train! And through the highs and lows, crafting has been a great stress reliever for me. You can find me at Becca's Heart for Creativity.

We are so happy to have these lovely and talented ladies joining us for the next couple months to help inspire and encourage you as you create.

Welcome aboard ladies!!

#408 Autumn/Fall

autumn | Definition, Characteristics, & Facts | Britannica

I know you have been waiting for it!  Here's this weeks AUTUMN/FALL challenge!

I am sure many of you have been working on autumn challenge for awhile now so be sure to add us to your list!  You can make your project about any autumn/fall theme, holiday, or maybe just the colors....take it where your imagination leads...

The DT has some amazing projects for you!

I visited Floriade in Canberra and found these giant copper coloured avocados. This range of autumn photos suited the photo.

Some fall photos in Gatineau Park, Quebec. 


In Canada our Thanksgiving holiday is in the fall so I used some lovely fall colors to scrap these photos of our son on his first Thanksgiving!

My September 2020 Project Life Pages pretty much scream Fall!

For the challenge, I experimented with slim line cards, as well as creating a digital scene cards and created the scene below using layering techniques in Word.

When I think of Fall, I think of is my favorite holiday!  So I took the opportunity to scrap my favorite moment from last year's Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party...
