These two pieces are from September’s challenges at the Just Art site. I love trains, steam trains especially. When the black and white plus one colour pop challenge appeared I knew exactly what subject I would pick. These beauties are sitting at the museum here in Ottawa and they are magnificent work horses.
This window is part of the old mill in Almonte. I was up in the second floor when I noticed how dramatic a photo it would make and I love it but never really had a chance to use it and make it shine until now.
Half Past Autumn … I love this way of describing the season change between autumn to winter. It is from a poem by Gordon Parks “But I do feel a little teeny right now that I’m just about ready to start, and winter is entering. Half past autumn has arrived.” This kit was created for The Digital Scrapbooking Studio’s December colour challenge with ADB Designs. I have also done a page using ADB Designs pretty little kit and another created with my kit. These photos are from a beautiful autumn day deep in the Ottawa valley.

September is all about apples …. apple pie, cider, vinegar. When Pixel Scrappers challenge was ‘red’ what better than apples; apples in red, green and yellow. Don’t forget the cozy warmth of plaid flannels and felt in the Autumn air. Put them together and you have a great little kit for all those ‘playing in the leaves’ photos.

Wanda wants to go trick or treating this year for Hallowe’en. She has her witches costume all ready and Twinkles her cat is all dressed up too. Won’t you take her trick or treating with you this year? Finish her story. What will she gather when she is out? Which friends will she meet? What will happen if a goblin asks for a trick in exchange for a treat?
Our Tiggy cat on a page using The Studios little free kit. Isn’t he handsome. I created a mini kit and an add on for this challenge.
This page was made with the mini kit I designed. A dramatic page that shows our late Tigger at his best, watching out our window for the birds, squirrels and chipmunks that come to visit.
This is the mini kit I created for the October colour challenge at The Studio. I added lots of glitter to the beautiful rich colours.
Working on the kit using the beautiful colours I found I couldn’t stop. Here is a little add on to go with the mini kit
