I Spy

Welcome to the Leafing Memories Blog Hop!

You should have come here from Kathy's blog.  If not, hop on over to Amanda's blog to begin at the beginning.

To be honest, I had the hardest time coming up with what I was going to do for this hop.  We were supposed to do a layout with photos that had leaves in them.  I thought, "Great!  The Fall leaves are so pretty here."  THE LEAVES HAVEN'T CHANGED!  At all!  Ok...plan B...what is plan B...I have no clue!  Then I remembered this little guy I photographed while visiting my mom this summer.  I have never seen one of these before.  We almost walked right by him, but he was on a branch that overhung the trail and my step dad spotted him.  Super cool!

I also used three of the very same photo.  I've always admired this technique, but when you have so many photos, you just don't have a use for using one photo three times.  I also got to use these really cute leaves that I won as a prize from Sketchy Thursdays.  I ran them through my embossing machine to give them a cute textured look.  I also love that my rub-on letters had that pieced/ransom sort of look.


































And now you have your chance to win!!  Take the inspiration we've provided you and create your own project that is leaf inspired.  Post it to your blog, gallery or Flickr and share the link with the Mr Linky widget on Amanda's blog  You have until the end of day Sunday, Oct 23 to post! 

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out Melissa's blog

You are tooo funny! I love that you improvised because you don't have Fall (oh sorry....) "Up" colors yet! I love your tree and the litle creature sitting in it! this is such a fun LO! I love the repeating pictures and even the funny journaling hint that it's a bug on a leaf! Precious! You hit one to the moon on this one!

Our leaves haven't changed here either so I know what you mean, Laura! :) That's why I had to use older pics on my layout! LOL I love your little tree! :) It's so cute with its little embossed leaves!
