One Autumn Morning

Autumn has really arrived here in the Mid West. Yesterday was 80 degrees and today we are at a whopping 46 degrees. With that in mind, it was easy for me to create this scrapbook page. I love having pages ready so that I can just add a few precious photo's and insert them into my book. 

I kept this page pretty simple. I dug into my autumn stamp drawer and found this beautiful poem by Nita Harksell. This is a Great Impression stamp that I inherited from a friend. It is One Autumn Morning coded J48 from Great Impressions. Not sure how recent this stamp is, but it is a gem. I couldn't even find it on the blog store site, so it really must be older. 
I also used a die of autumn leaves that embosses the veins of the leaves. Not sure who manufactured this die. I picked it up at a resale shop and I just love it. 
I  used Stampin'Up Four Frames for the poem title and the place a stamp tool to adjust the poem title. I used a burlap looking paper from the Paper Studio.

Well, my page is all ready, waiting for my special photo's. I am submitting this page for the Great Impressions Challenge Blog.  Thanks for stopping in today. Have a beautiful autumn day.
