Celebrating Fall with CPS 87

October 23, 2008

Mmmm...it is a gorgeous fall day today. The sun is shining, the sky is mostly blue, and there are just a few fluffy clouds hanging around. And while many trees have already lost all their leaves, there are still many that haven't yet. I took some backroads home the other day, and there are still many neighborhoods with trees full of red, golden, and brown leaves. Makes me wish I had mature trees in my yard. It would be fun to play in the leaves with the dogs and have it feel more fallish. But, I am sure Josh is okay with not having a bunch of leaves all over the ground. :)

I decided to celebrate Fall with my CPS card this week, sketch # 87. The CPS girls did a lot of super cute cards this week, be sure to hop on over to the blog and check them out!

On another Fall note...I am going to be taking photographs of a family I know on Friday as long as schedules work out. We have this great park that I went and checked out the other day, and it still has its gorgeous Fall colors. They know I am not a professional, but am really working towards it. I know that it will be a long while before I can be considered a professional, and that is okay. I am really enjoying the learning process, even when photos don't turn out.

Well, that is all for me! Hope everyone is having a great Thursday! Anyone else ready for the weekend? I know I am!

Have a happy day,
