Love the stitching on your leaves!! I just bought some embroidery floss, I'm going to give hand-stitching a try.

what I love about fall is the temperature!! After far too many days of triple-digit temperatures, I love the cool breezes and the days when you can't quite decide if you need a jacket or not.

Crate paper is quickly becoming one of my favs, just slightly behind Basic Grey.
My favorite thing about Fall is wearing jeans and a sweatshirt at soccer games, instead of being hot in the sun. I like cozy in the sunshine instead!

Living in Florida w/ 90* weather (still in October), I love feeling the crispier weather!

Andrea said...

Here in NZ our Fall (autumn) is cool, but my most favourite thing about it is the change of colour in the leaves. I just love the burnt oranges and reds and the crispness of the leaves as they fall. The kids love to go out and sweep up all the leaves and hide under mounds of them, such fun!!

Amber said...

I love wearing sweaters and scarves!! =)

Misty C said...

I love all the seasonal candy - love the crisp air - love the changing leaves
love that my favorite holidays are just around the corner

Hi there Estee,
Living in the desert (Las Vegas) fall is something we just wish for...lol....no kidding, we go from 118 degrees to 60 degrees. We go from green to dead...hee hee hee. My fav thing about fall is when it turns cold and I have a great reason to make SOUP...yummm and zuchini and pumpkin bread or better yet stew inside a pumpkin...love that. I also have to say that getting out the fall decorations, I love the mums and pumpkins we arrange throughout our living room.

The stitching on those leaves is something I must lift SOOn....great page. Hope you and your family are doing well. Have a fabulous fall (couldn't resist):-)

Estee, I love your LO!! I love the stitching!! But, you knew that right? :) My favorite thing about fall is the fall activities... apple picking, pumpkin patches/carving, walking thru the parks (listening to the leaves crunch under your steps)...cold nights to freeze off all the bugs!! Cool days, which unfortunately, we have had alot of this summer! But, I just love all the activities we do as a family!! Oh, my favorite candy... Brach's candy corn!!! :) I hope you are doing ok!! Hugs!!

Jean said...

The thing I love most about fall is late afternoon when everything turns that glittery golden color. It sets the gorgeous colors of fall on fire. Also, I have to admit, I have a little thing about collecting scarecrows...they are so cute!

Glynis said...

Love the LO! Your leaves are great, the hand stitching is what really makes this page.

Fall is my favorite season hands down! If I had to pick one thing I love about it, that would have to be walking through the woods sorrounded by the incredible colorful leaves and mushrooms and the crisp cool air with no musquitos!

julie.schellin said...

our annual trip to the orchard/pumpkin patch/petting farm/bakery. We buy loads of apples, apple butter and apple pie.

Carol Metully said...

My favorite seasons are Fall and Spring. Fall because it's a winding down time, cooler temps, falling leaves, sweaters. Spring because it's a rebirth of all that "winding down", new buds on the trees, freshness to the air again, baby critters saying hello!

Thanks Estee for your inspiration ( great LO) and a cool giveaway from Crate Paper ( a fave of mine).

LotsToScrap said...

Love your layout Estee, that stitching is beautiful!!!

I LOVE watching the leaves change. Each day my backyard looks a little different and after having grown up in California, that is just soooooo neat!

CJ said...

What I love most about fall is also what I miss the most. When I lived in Michigan I loved the turning of the leaves, the colors that different trees produce make a beautiful sight! I also loved being able to snuggle up in sweaters, there is something cozy about them =D. Now that I am living in the California desert what I love about fall is the end of triple digit days!!!

Alyssa said...

That stitching is AWESOME. It adds such a great effect to your layout.

Lindsay said...

I love those leaves! Super cute!

Fall is awesome because I get to pull out my cute sweaters and scarves and wear my winter boots. I love going to the pumpkin patch and seeing the leaves change. Fall is so beautiful to me!

Denise said...

Love the cool weather, fall colors and football games under a blanket with cocoa or my kids playing in a pile of leaves. Oh yeah and chili, yum!

Lal said...

I love your stitching! My fave thing about fall is...well, whatever version of fall we get here...lol is the cooler weather...since most of the time all we have are different degrees of hot, the cool, fresh weather is always a VERY welcome change :) We get to break out our sweaters and everything! lol :)

Claire said...

I love the combination of crispness in the air and the sun shining - really revitalising!

Crystal said...

fall is definitely my favorite season and i just love it because of the smell that is in the air, the leaves changing colors, the traditions of halloween and thanksgiving, football and good food, just so many wonderful things that happen in the fall!

KateB said...

I'm a warm color person, so it'd have to be the golds, paprikas and browns that make me love fall...plus, boots, sweet potato pie and not having to run the a/c!

marla said...

I love the cooler temperatures so I can drink tea and cocoa!!

Queen of Paper said...

Beverly said...

Your stitching just plain rocks!!!

My favorite thing about fall is the change in color. One day the trees are green and then bam a color explosion. The sad part for me is when all the color has dropped off and the trees are bare. Makes me want to knit some tree scarves. lol

Mary said...

My favorite thing about fall the gorgeous colors all around. Just today I was admiring the beautiful colors of a nearby vineyard.

abbie said...

LOVE the stitching, Estee!

I cannot possibly pick one favorite thing about fall, but I would have to say...hooded sweatshirts and crunchy, colorful leaves!! Fall is my favorite season!

Amanda Sevall said...

Hope you are enjoying the fall Estee! Those leaves are adorable :) My favorite thing is the change in the weather -- the cool air, the beautiful trees, the smell of the rain. LOVE it. Always been my favorite season. :)

Angela L. said...

Love your blog and what an awesome giveaway!

There's SO many things that I love about Fall (it's my very favorite season)! To me, Fall is all about looking out the window to see the leaves changing to bright and beautiful colors; the crisp chill in the air; the smell of homemade soup and cups of steaming hot chocolate! Then there's also the festivals, hayrides and bonfires... It just doesn't get any better than that!!!

Fall in south Florida... lemmesee, fall means is stops raining every day at 3:00 when school is letting out! It means local farms start to import pumpkins so us scrapping moms can have a place to go to make faux-fall photos, begging the kids to put on something fall-like when it's still 94 degrees. Fall in south Florida... usually means tropical weather season, but we've been blessed with no hurricanes so far this fall! Fall in south Florida... means new Halloween candy in all new shapes and sizes, and CANDY CORN! Fall means watching the birds migrate in all directions... Fall means looking forward to Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday.
Love your fall-like leaves!

awesome pages Estee!

I love EVERYTHING about fall - and am not happy that again this year we seemed to have skipped from summer directly into winter. :( too soon!

Izzyb said...

My favorite thing about Fall is sharing my October birthday with both my mom and my son. Three generations born on one day. It's beautiful to look into the eyes of my mom and my son and see myself reflected back. Plus, you should see our cake!! ~ Izzyb

Carla said...

I am late by a day...I have my layout posted at sb.com and my favorite thing about Fall is candy corn and cooler weather. Here in Texas, we don't really have a fall. Its green, green, green and then dead. I miss seeing the changing of the trees like it did when I lived in Virginia and the smell of fall during that time.

laura said...

My favorite thing about fall is going to the old cider mill, getting doughnuts, hot cider and a caramel apple! YUM!

Vel said...

I love the leaves on this!

Michelle said...

Estee you have loads of friends! I love your blog and all of the cute things you make. Give your mom a hug for me and tell her I miss her!

Michelle said...

I hope everything is ok... thinking of you!!!

nancy said...

I missed the giveaway, but I love the layout... the Lemongrass collection is one of my favorites!

I love this time of year because I know what it lends to Christmas my favorite time of year.
I love to take my son to the pumpkin patch and watch him run around to find his perfect pumpkin:)
