There is nothing more serene than an autumn drive in the Virginia mountains. I took the day off on Friday and headed out onto Skyline drive with the kids - my hubbie decided to join us for the first time this year. The air was chilly - at 43 degrees is was a whole lot colder than we expected! But the sky was clear and the sun shining. Here's a quick layout I put together using last year's Indian Summer line from Basic Grey. Nothing fancy - just using the scraps I had left over from a couple of projects last year. There was this little bird sticker leftover from the Elements Stickers pack that I gave new tail feathers. I just love how the tail feathers transform an otherwise plain pink bird in too an awesome peacock!

Last Saturday we took Zach, Nicky and a friend to Pumpkinville, just outside of Leesburg. It was a beautiful day! I took a ton of pictures but this one was especially nice of the three of them searching for the perfect pumpkin. As I am determined to use the papers and supplies I have been hoarding for the past few years, I put this layout together using last year's Little Yellow Bicycle line "Autumn Bliss" and two new Sissix Dies I bought last weekend on sale at Joann.
If I don't use a product line that I buy right away, it seems to sit on a shelf forever and becomes forgotten. Rediscovering this line again was such a pleasant surprise!
