Fall Colors?

Here in Louisiana, we have a different kind of fall, without the colorful show of leaves typical in other parts of the States. The cypress trees in my yard go from green to down-on-the-ground brown, while the live oak in the front yard remains green throughout the year! You won't find postcard pretty scenes of red, orange, and yellow, at least not in my neighborhood. So I decided to use the autumn color palette of Scraptastic's Home kit to scrap this photo of my son in a (very) orange shirt!



The "5 Great Things" ticket shaped sticker inspired my journaling, where I listed five great things about the day. Finally, the die-cut title was enhanced by writing over the letters using Chestnut Liquid Pearls...and a somewhat steady hand. ;) 


So there you go. See how the cacophony of warm colors in Scraptastic's Home kit worked perfectly for my out-of-season photo? I love it!
