september gardeners’ digest {two peas blog hop}…

digest

Good morning! Welcome to the September edition of the Gardners’ Digest, a monthly update from the Garden Girls, the design team at Two Peas in a Bucket.

If you’re following along from the beginning, you should have just arrived from Lynn’s fun blog…if you’re just joining us, welcome – either way – enjoy the hop!!freshfromthegarden

Here’s a look at one of my layouts that went up in the garden recently as part of our “Fall” theme.

I think it’s safe to say Autumn is my favorite season…I just love the crisp cool air, the scent of pumpkin and spice, and the idea of curling up in a soft warm blanket with a cup of hot apple cider.  And the colors.  Don’t forget the colors – LOVE them!

All of these products worked together perfectly to highlight these photos of my kiddos taken in the Autumn leaves.

I love when several manufacturers’ collections work so perfectly together as was the case here. (to see more about the products I used, please click here to visit the layout gallery).

As I mentioned, I love autumn, so I found myself being inspired over and over by all of the projects created by my design team members for the Fall project gallery.  Be sure to check it out here!

Are you sensing a theme here yet?  Since I can’t get Autumn off my brain, how about if I share a handful of my favorite Autumn products?  Here are a few:

 

giveaway_yayAnd now I’m going to leave the theme a bit.  Well, actually, not as much as you might think.  I mentioned that the scents of Autumn (to me, at least) are pumpkin and spice.  Autumn is also the season when I really get anxious to bake goodies and treats.  So…I have a fun little scrapbook kit from Echo Park Paper Company called “Grandma’s Kitchen” that I’d love to share with one of you! (You can see a couple of projects I created using this kit right here.)

Thanks for stopping by – now you can hop on over and visit the lovely and talented Shimelle!   Come back soon! :)
