Happy Fall, ladies! I am your host for the October SGC. It is no secret that Fall is my favorite time of year! I love everything about it. Sometimes we don’t get a very long Fall here. It has been known to go from Summer right into Winter. So far, it has been beautiful! A couple of weeks ago, I was reminded of one of my favorite tastes and smells of Fall. Pumpkin Spice Chai! I LOVE this stuff!!! So, it got me wondering, what do you like about Fall?
So, here is the challenge!
1. Create a LO showing one thing that you LOVE about Fall! It could be an event, some special food you only seem to eat in the fall, a scent, the colors, etc…
2. Dig deep into your Swirly Stash and use papers from a past kit that you forgot you had or have been hoarding. Dig way down, ladies! If you don’t have old Swirly kits, Look through you stash for some forgotten papers! Let’s use up some of our hoard! (At least a year old)
3. Post you creation here and in the Gallery!
4. Enter by the end of the night of October 31st!
5. HAVE FUN!!!
For my example, I used a beautiful fall Swirly kit from WAY back. I think it was before the site was hacked. I can’t remember the name of the kit, but the paper is Little Yellow Bicycle and was the Autumn Bliss collection. My dh laughed at me, because I saved my cup that I got at Caribou Coffee on a recent road trip. As soon as I saw the colors, I knew what I was going to do with it!

Oooh great challenge and love the example!!
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."October 1, 2014 at 3:44 pm #246317
Fantastic challenge, Cheryl! I love your page, and AGAIN, you make me envious that you still have paper from the Autumn Splendor kit! 🙂October 1, 2014 at 6:23 pm #246318
Oh my gosh Cheryl… you have made that coffee cup look gorgeous! Love this challenge! I love fall as well, and it is equally short here in Alberta. LOL. How did you make the beautiful leaves on your layout? They are stunning!October 1, 2014 at 7:54 pm #246319
Great challenge Cheryl, great sample layout and I love those pretty leaves!October 1, 2014 at 10:28 pm #246320
I remember that kit!!!! I don't know if I have any of it left, BUT I certainly have old papers and another piece of hoarded something!!!!
Great challenge, Cheryl, and such a gorgeous example!!!!October 2, 2014 at 2:00 am #246321

I can't take credit for the leaves. They are some stickers by LYB that went with the paper in that kit. I found the stickers in Denver right after we got the Swirly kit and I grabbed them up! LOL! Of course, I have hoarded them all this time!October 19, 2014 at 4:32 pm #246323

Fall to us means football. Some of my Swirly sisters know what a die hard football fan I am. So here is a photo of dh and I at a football game last year. I used the Brass Shilling kit.October 19, 2014 at 4:38 pm #246324
