I created this layout as a reminder to be kind to myself as I am learning about who I am and what makes "me" me. All products used are from Creating Inspirations October kit.
I just loved working with the awesome Cosmo Cricket papers in my October www.cropaddict.com kit. I have so many photos of when I used to show my horse that it was fun to be able to actually scrap them. This is my sweet horse, Romeo. He is just gorgeous!
I just cannot get enough of Piggy Tales' "frog prince" line. They are working so perfectly to scrap my boy pics!
I created the altered 7 Gypsies mini album to keep a few of my most favorite quotes. I used goodies from the October www.creatinginspirations.com kit. So much fun stuff in there! Posted by Picasa

Ahh...I just love Fall!

Steve and I ventured out and about this
weekend taking "drive-by" photos of all
the gorgeous colors Bend is displaying this time of year!
It was quite fun looking like a tourist with my
head out the window taking snap-shots
driving through town..haha!
But, it was fun.........and I wanted to be able to share with
you the gorgeous Fall splendor of Bend, Oregon.
In the next month, our town will be cove
red in a
blanket of beautiful white winter snow.
So, it a great time to enjoy
these few warm, vibrant fall days.

{The first pic is of the big trees at Pioneer Park. This park is so lovely and located in down town Bend. People often celebrate anniversaries and weddings in their lush location.}

{Just driving down the streets of Bend, you are surrounded by rich crimson reds and rustic oranges. While it is still warm, you can feel the slight shift of the season change.}

{This is the beautiful Deschutes River which peacefully weaves through our humble town where beautiful homes line its bountiful banks.} Posted by Picasa

{Wall street is Bend's business district. Monday through Friday the side walks are lined with men and women in crisp suits, carrying about their important business. On the weekends, Wall Street transforms in to a social place; a place where families walk hand-in-hand, window shopping through beautiful clothing and gift boutiques. People are seated outside of coffee shops and cafe's enjoying conversation with wine or coffee. It truly is such a wonderful atmosphere. The man in this photograph is a statue that is right down town on Wall street. While it does make me chuckle at the site , I wonder what the artist was thinking when creating this man.......looking into his empty wallet as the ducks observe. Too funny, but when I think of down town Bend, this guy comes right to mind!} Have a wonderful week! Tessa :-)
