DB took a trip a couple years ago to attend his high school reunion. While there, he was able to drive around his old stomping grounds on the coast of Maine with his Mom and Sister. He got some beautiful shots of the scenery around Acadia National Park. Enjoy!

I was lucky on 2 occasions recently – one was to go to Kentucky for a long weekend before all the leaves dropped and two, was able to work with the 3 Bugs Autumn line!

Kentucky was beautiful and a little cooler than I was expecting :). The colors of autumn really made up for it though. I just love the oranges, browns and yellows of the season. Not enough to move into a part of the country that has that though!

The Autumn line is really fun! It has all the great colors you expect for Fall plus patterns that match. I love that on many of the papers, the back is solid colored. Also, I like being able to distress it myself if I want. The addition of a cool grayish blue was a nice touch.

Rusty Pickle is really good at creating grungy and worn looking papers. Panama Jack is one of those great collections that fits that description to a “T”. Rustic old Florida comes to mind, somewhere like Key West, when seeing these papers for the first time. Great shades of blue and green, the patterns are conducive to tropical, vacation or even masculine projects with a tad of “old” thrown in. The Pickle Trims are awesome texture and color combined. Add some torn Core’dinations cardstock and Ideology stuff, you’ve got yourself a great page!
