Ahhhhh Autumn

Here is a mini book for a swap on Crafting Corner. The theme is Autumn!!!

My first pages are back to school, cos thats what autunm reminds me of (even though, obviously, I dont go to school anymore lol) The image is a Mo Manning one called End of Summer. The other page I have revisted my old stickers and found some school type ones!

The next pages are, of course, halloween!!! The image is a Sugar Nellie one, the backing paper I think is K & Co.

Then it's onto Autunm Leaves. The image on the left is from Third Coast Stamps, the trees on the right are from a Crafty Individuals kit.

Finally its onto bonfire night!
"Remember remember the 5th of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason should ever be forgot"

This is my OH favorite time of year. What is it about men and fire!! I think it all stems back to some primeval caveman instinct! He loves fire and fireworks, the bigger the better! I hate fireworks, well, rather I hate the thought of fireworks near me and maiming me for life!
"November the 5th has been and gone
the thought of it still lingers
I held a banger in my hand
Has anybody seen my fingers! lol
Remember to play safe on bonfire night!!

LOL! The only reason I recognize the 5th of November is because of the movie 'V for Vendetta'... I was like, "Hey,I've heard that poem before..." Who says TV rots your brain! ;)
Your mini album is pure Claire, TOTALLY AWESOME!
