Heavy With Conkers.

I'm feeling autumnal today, i've just asked y UKS friends to tell me their favourite things about this special season and whether their feelings towards autumn have changed since they began scarpbooking.

I thought I would start by sharing this layout which was totally created with the new monthly kit from Happy Scrapper

So here's my five favourite things about Autumn :-

1. Conker hunts, you can't beat finding free treasure and popping open those shells which have fallen to the ground.

2. Leaf Kicking, how fab is leaf kicking on a sunny autumnal morning?

3. I love the reds and oranges of the season, my favourite colours forming a huge autumnal blanket.

4. Those crisp autumnal mornings followed by warm hazy sunny afternoons as the seasons battle to change.

6. The cooler nights sat by my large window with a mug of something warm, cuddling my hubby.

So here's the thing, the season I used to dislike most of all was autumn, it always seemed damp and dreary to me, everything was dying and the days were shortening. Then I discovered scrapbooking and it photography and it all changed, I love the colours and the smells of an Autumn walk and I love that in their last breaths all the plants and trees put on one more magnificent show.

Autumn for me now is truly a magical colourful season.
