Autumn Inspiration {Basic Grey: Green at Heart}

This is the 2nd layout that I completed for the online crop last weekend at Birds of a Feather. The challenge was to use one of several quotes and use a tree, leaves or pumpkin on your layout. I don't normally scrap with purple but these pictures called for it, and the Green at Heart paper went great with the pictures. The striped paper and the circles used on the tree are the only two sheets that I bought from that collection. I was digging through my cardstock stash at 1 am to find a shade of purple that worked! lol The tree, grass, butterfly & bird are from a set of Little Yellow Bicycle rubons...I have way too many rubons! I doodled around the circles on the tree, under my journaling and around the outside of the just needed something extra when I looked at it the next morning ;)

The quote I chose is "Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile. ~William Cullen Bryant" and is on the brown journaling strips. I didn't use a title for this layout - it feels weird to me to not have one!

I used an Inspired Blueprints sketch. I have no idea what number, sorry :( But it does have a tree on it, just like my layout!

Of course the girlies are adorable, but I LOVE that tree! I see a lift in my future! :-)
