Autumn, you suck.

Oh hai! Yes, i'm still alive. Life has been a full of drama and craziness lately. And not in the good way. Life seems to have a habit of throwing stuff like that at me around this time of year, as if i don't find autumn difficult enough as it is. Usually in September/October i see lot's of love for autumn all over the internets. Me, i'm not so keen. i can get on-board with the pretty leaves and the pumpkins but the dark and cold i could live without.

Despite all the life craziness i'm still managing to find little pockets of time to get my scrap on and this is a layout i knocked out a few weeks ago. There's a lot of personal stuff i choose not to include in my scrapbooks, but i try to keep it real.

Most of this is older product. i am not snobby about having to use the latest stuff. It makes me happy to use papers and embellishments that support the theme of my page so i often work from older kits or collections. i'm going to be moving at the end of the year. It's something i'm having a tough time coming to terms with as i LOVE my home and the location. And i'll be downsizing, which means a lot less space for stash and no desk to scrap on (sadface). i'm pretty good at only buying stuff that i love and any doubles or bits that come in kits that aren't my style i eliminate straight away. So i'm having real trouble trying to 'purge' as everything i have i love. Any tips on how to get around this problem greatly received!

This is so pretty! I hear you on the cold and dark. Montana turns grey and cloudy around November and stays that way for many many months. I do not look forward to that. I do try to find the good things though. The colors are lovely. Hope you will hang with us for the crop...that is something to look forward to.
