  12. Can't wait to get this cartridge.

    Since I've been banished to Orlando for the last many years, my favorite tradition is going home to WV for Fall. Even when I lived there, my favorite tradition was going to the mountains to see the leaves. My father always had Columbus Day off, and even thought we didn't get if off from school, he'd let me take off and we'd go to the mountains - still my favorite place to be. Now that my kids are older, I've enjoyed the opportunity to rekindle the tradition.

  20. Favorite fall tradition would be leaving the front door open so the cool fresh air can flow in. It's nice to sit outside on the front porch and feel the difference.

  22. My favorite fall tradition used to be taking my daughter to pick out a pumpkin for carving. but she grew up. But last year my grandson was finally old enough (6) to carve his own pumpkin! What a great job he did, too! My old favorite is now my new favorite again! The fall season is also my favorite to scrap, which works perfectly with your layout! thanks for sharing it!

  23. Thanks for the cute and clever idea, love that wood grain look, I'll have to cut a stencil of that! Living in south Florida, we really don't get much Fall here....but we do see a drop in evening temperatures, which means long, evening walks or bike rides, open windows at night, and migratory birds. I love your posts, esp. with this new cartridge.....what fun!

  25. Hi Joy!

    Oh I can't wait for fall! It is my favorite time of year here in Texas! :)

    I have a question...How do you pick all the "paper crumbs" off that are left on your mat? It takes me FOREVER and is very frustrating! I almost do not want to use my cricut b/c of the time this one part takes. Do you just have a ton of mats and don't worry about it till they are all "dirty" I only have 2 mats and I have to stop and pick off w/ almost every cut.

  27. Our family FALL tradition is to make several Sunday rides to watch the progression of the turning of the leaves to the colorful hews. Even our kids have started the activity with their kids. Also deer sightings and counts are on the trip. THen wwe graph the number on a chart. Great way to teach reading a bar or line graph.

  41. My favorite fall tradition is just watching the leaves change its colors. I love your layout especially the woodgrain background. I have a question. How did your Cricut cut-out the words sideways? Did you press the flip button?

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love to decorate for Halloween, seasons and the other holidays. I decorate my classroom, my yard and my home. My grandchildren rake the leaves on our property and jump into the big piles. So much fun, and will look great on a similar layout.

  61. I just love to get e-mail from you and see all the wonderful projects you make. It sure looks easy but I have some difficulty understanding you when you give the location of the image and I can't see the booklet very well. I would love to receive the gift you give and will continue to watch you e-mail religiously. Charlotte, dilson75@fuse.net
