autumn in spring...

It's raining today, first day in ages. It's supposed to continue for the next few days which figures as we have Henry's school twilight fair on Friday. It normally storms but this constant rain will be interesting. Half the school is closed down for roof repairs...

But the real reason for autumn in spring is that the northern hemisphere is well into autumn and their challenges reflect this. Not that I mind as autumn is a beautiful time of the year, but as I have have said before (constantly) I am ready for some heat!





This is for Digi Dares #299 - a page about autumn, which incorporates a ribbon, leaves, some paint and some plaid paper (right along the bottom edge). This photo was taken on a walk around Canberra's lake, a glorious walk most of the year. Extra nice in April...

The background paper is Anna Aspnes from her Great Outdoors kit over at Oscraps. Lots of stuff from the freebies treasure hunt on the weekend as well.

And one I put together for Red Carpet Studio - A clean and simple Lo. Tricky. This is about as clean and simple as I get -

This is Meaghan on her 16th birthday a month or so ago. She is - as always - attached to her itouch, receiving birthday wishes from her friends. All Elements are from The Lilypad.

I'm off to watch the election results now - I am a bit of a political nerd and the US elections has me fascinated - so very different from ours.

Have  a good one... xx
