Hello Today

So Happy to squeeze in another scrapbook layout before the end of the month!
Today I'm playing along with the challenge at "Scrapping Outback"
WHITE with Orange, Gold and Kraft. 
and the essential Chippie!

The Liquid Amber tree in our front yard looks beautiful at this time of the year...the colours are so pretty. I took this photo last weekend......My husband was mowing the lawn , which is really dry, I was gardening. He mowed past me , covering me in a cloud of dust...I went to cover my face, but instead I thought the sun looked so nice filtering through all the I quickly snapped this pic on my phone.

I used a few different shades of gelatos to water colour a piece of card stock. I then used my cricut to cut out all the leaves and branch. The negative from the leaves I used as a stencil to add more leaves to the background.  " Hello Today" chippie title is sprayed with gold colour shine.

Hope you are enjoying a great day......we are enjoying beautiful winter weather at the moment, the days are still warm!

Happy Crafting
