Fall day in Blue Springs!

Oh how much fun! I am back to paper and scrappingness! I tried my hand at digital scrapping with PSE and I am just not getting it! Like please send me to a class and I will head to it...but muddling is not my way!
I found this fabulous huge roll of vintage bamboo cupboard liner paper at a sale for 50 cents! I used it for my back ground and then mounted my photo on a piece of cute Mr. Campy fall paper. After all, we did go to Blue Springs Park in October...but it being Florida and all...everything is still green! I used silk leaves and branches from the leaves, along with thickers and frillies I received in a swap! The owl is a vintage card cut out! I love how it turned out...right down to the wood grain patterned paper that looks like a tree trunk with the journaling!
We had gone to the park for the day so Jay could play on the swings for the very very first time in his life! Needless to say, he screamed the whole time....and NOT with glee I might add!!! Michael and I enjoyed the park for the first time together that day! I have been many times with my kindergarten class{to view the manatees that winter in the springs} as well with my own children while Michael was at work. It was so much fun watching Jay explore for the first time on his own. Trying to run run run...but only managing to fall more than run!
As always, you can click on the photos to enlarge them!

Love the LO and your papers! What a cute action shot of the baby falling! I saw your digi LO, it was awesome, but please don't ever quit traditional scrapping!!! You do it so well!
