With that said... it's OCTOBER!  Seriously??  I'm having a hard time believing we are well into FALL.  We are having an "Indian Summer" where I live... and I LOVE the change... but also love not having to turn on the heat in the house quite yet.  :)

First off... we have a new lovely GDT to introduce to you for the month of October...

Welcome JILL!!  

I live in Somerset, Pennsylvania with my husband, our 17 year old daughter and eight year old son. I am a high school mathematics teacher and use scrapbooking as my creative outlet. I have been crafting since I was a child, but in 2003 I fell in love with scrapbooking and it has become my favorite hobby. Of course my family photos are always my inspiration for my layouts. In 2010 I started a blog and love participating in all the fun challenges! Thank you so much for having me as Guest Designer. It is a big honor for me!

And then our LOVELY... and so appreciated DT...
What a great rendition of our color challenge.  Really hope you all can find time to play.  Why??
Well... we have another PRIZE!  Woo hoo!  Tops 3 and GDT for February, 2017 as well.
So hang with us and link up your layouts.  

And we have a prize for the month of October!
