Goodbye Summer! Hello Fall!

Welcome to the “Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!” Blog Hop, hosted by a talented group of ladies from {Club CK}. If you did not arrive here from Toree's blog, please go to the beginning of the hop at Virtually Froggy and follow the blog hop in order. By following the blog hop from beginning to end you will collect words to a secret phrase which will make you eligible for the grand prize. The details for grand-prize entry are posted at the start of the blog hop. You won't want to miss it!

Here is list of the blogs you will be touring in order:
 Stephanie (start here)
Christy ( you are here)
Veronica  ( visit here next!)
  Quite honestly, Summer is my least favorite time of year. I have always lived where it is really hot and humid. So I am always looking forward to fall. A lot of good things happen for me in the fall. I met and married my husband in the Fall. I was also born in the fall.So fall colors are a staple in my scrapbook pages. I also love how Fall colors can be very masculine. I thought that the Basic Grey Granola line would be perfect in color for these photos of my husband and the best man at our wedding. They had a floral accent which would be great for our wedding album while they set a great tone for the page.

 I don't know about you, but I am always wanting to learn or try something new. I honestly don't have a lot of time or money for scrapbook classes, so I love finding things on the internet. One of my Club CK peeps posted a link to a great, free class on Basic grey's website.  You can do the same project with any paper of your choosing. I obviously chose BG granola. I also substituted a BG stamp in place of her heart cutout.

And now...what would a blog hop be without blog candy! I have a little for you.

For a chance to win, simply become a follower and leave me a little comment to tell me that you are. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you liked my project and feel inspired to try out something new.So pop on over to Veronica's Blog! Enjoy the rest of the hop!
P.S. my secret word is Autumn.
