Colour Combo Blog Hop

Hi there. Welcome if you have come from Alysse's blog. The lovely Amy gave us a choice of Autumnal colour combos this month. I went with this one:
I love autumn leaves and deep brown colours, but I couldn't find any recent photos to work with them, so I used these pictures of a conker-collecting walk with my son 4 years ago. The papers are also old, old, old; from the days when I went for big bold patterns. I think they are the remains of a Papermania bundle I bought when I first started scrapping. I've cut into them and used the individual leaves as the title. The alphas are Papermania too and the tags are DCWV, I think. I always mean to keep my papers together so I know what manufacturer they belong to, but I always end up storing them by colour so then they get mixed up. 


I suggest you go one and have a look at the other lovely stuff which has been created inspired by these colours. Here is the full list of participants:

I love that you are using old papers. You are a woman after my own heart. I use years old papers all the time! If you liked it then, chances are you still like it now (but not always-LOL). Great job with that pretty combo.
