Autumn leaves

Fall! I love this season. I love the changing colors, cool breezes, mushrooms.... Fall is also a lovely season to scrap. I have lots of photos and designers make "Fall" kits galore. The latest bundle by Kathryn Estry is called Autumn leaves. Autumn Leaves is the season of color in all it's glory! Loaded with flowers and leaves, fall images, and tons of "must have" elements, this collection will be your "go to" kit for fall and Thanksgiving photos. This bundle is part of the monthly Pickle Barrel at Pickleberrypop.

I made two pages.

September daze

The last few weeks were not easy. On August 13 we got a telephone call that my father in law was found on the floor of his diningroom. They had brought him to hospital.
He was not addressable and he had a pneumonia. After treatment he was still not addressable. The expactation was that his situation would not change.
We had to make this difficult dicision to stop treatment and to focus on comfort. August 25 my father in law passed away at the age of 93. Rest in piece dear dad, I love you with all my heart.

My father in law was the last living parent. He has his own appartment a two hours drive from where we live. The house has to be cleared, cleaned and sold, so busy times are ahead.

In the meantime I wasn't able to scrap, I had no time but I also didn't feel like it. But today I started again with a challenge at Gingerscraps. A wonderful template by Dagi's temp-tations and September Daze by Kristmess Designs.

I scapped the wonderful walk we made on August 13. The same day as we got this awful telephone call, it started as a perfect Sunday......

The Marvelous collection by Kristmess Designs is such a lovely collection. Because of it "comicbook look" you can create little stories. For the template challenge at Gingerscraps Kristmess created a template whitch is perfect for a little story.

Here is my take on the challenge

Summer of 2013

I made another page with de lovely collection Erika's Beach Party by Kathryn Estry. I used a photo taken at the beach of Catricum (The Netherlands). It was a very windy day.

This page has been chosen as one of the pickle picks. Hope to be Layout of the week sometimes.
