Fall is in full bloom!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to a new day.  I am so happy to be sharing the latest
Color Me Scrappy challenge with you.

Here is the amazing color scheme just waiting for your fall photos.  The twist for this challenge is to use feathers on your page.  How fun!

I had to search for feathers, but I knew that I had some in my stash.  Here is my completed page:

Head on over to Color Me Scrappy - we can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here are some other fall photos that I took when John and I went for a walk last week:

 We feel very blessed to have such a beautiful neighborhood to walk in:

Here is the photo that I used for my layout:


And stopping at our front stoop, I wanted to share that my Gerbera daisy is still blooming!  Amazing!

We had a very busy weekend!  My sisters, Anne, and I participated in the Women's 5K Classic this past Saturday.  Here are some of the highlights:

Such a beautiful model:

And saving the best for last, my sister at the finish line:

YAY, Karen!!!!!

Oh - 2 more photos to share!  My husband surprised Anne and I with tickets to see the Lion King on Broadway on Saturday evening!!!  We were beyond excited!

And a photo taken on Long Island the following morning:

Whew! I had a lot to share with you this time.  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!

  1. Hi Sharon!!! So happy to see you posted today, was just thinking of you!! Glad you stopped by and saw my FALL pictures, love sharing this season!

    WOW, those colors are gorgeous together and you did so awesome with them. LOVE the layout and that cute little house/barn picture. Nice feather for the layout too, it's perfect for a fall layout.

    What a nice place to take a walk, so peaceful and full of fall, enjoyed all the pictures. Wish we had more open country views here by me.
    How awesome and sweet that hubby of yours is, that is a great show to see!! It's my favorite Disney movie of all times along with my daughter. We went to the movies 5 times to see it, love it still to this day!

    YAY for the pink, so happy all of you got to do this and great role model for Anne. I really enjoyed these pictures and got a big smile for Karen at the finish line.

    Hope all is going well with you and the girls. Take care dear friend and your pictures/posts always leave me smiling and happy. HUGS!

    Have a wonderful Fall, Sharon. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I really, really appreciate it!

  14. Hi Sharon! Thanks for stopping my my little corner of the blog world! I love what you did with your LO- the colors are so great and the feather adds that "just right" touch!
    We saw the Lion King in Portland- it was mesmerizing. My kiddo was 4 and she sat still the entire time- transfixed. I don't think I have seen her sit still like that since! How nice of your hubs to take you guys!

  15. Hello Sharon, Looks like you certainly did have a busy weekend. Gosh, those colors in the challenge are gorgeous! Love what great texture your LO has and how the blue peeks out on both sides. Nice work. You live in a scenic part of the country...no fields around here, but plenty of swaying palm trees and hills. We've been weathering pesky Santa Ana winds which is murder on the sinuses and allergies...achoo! Have a nice Thursday :)

  16. Loving all the texture on your layout and enjoy looking at your gorgeous photo's. Autumn is such a pretty time, we are suppose to be going into Summer here, but it is quite cold and very windy the last few days and we are experiencing Bush Fires at the moment a few hours from here, feel for those that are affected. On a brighter note we are going to see the Lion King in Dec :) so looking forward to that. Thanks so much for popping by my blog and leaving some blog love, it is appreciated

  17. Love the feathers/blooms cluster on your gorgeous page.
    Enjoy your autumn!

  18. Wow! Totally rich and decadent! Love it! And I bet Lion King was incredible!

  19. Great post, with so much to see. Looks like you're having a really fun fall. Congrats on doing the 5K! Your fall photos are so pretty, and your layout is magical--I love the dramatic pops of blue, and of course the feathers. Have a good week!

  20. Gorgeous, gorgeous photos, as always!!! :)

  21. That layout with the palette is GORGEOUS, Sharon! And what a beautiful visit I had here seeing all of your lovely fall photos! Very cute pic of Anne in NY...o my, is she growing up or what?!?! Thanks for visiting my blog too! You are the sweetest friend :)
