Fun in the Autumn Sun!

Well we have certainly enjoyed the sunny weather this weekend.  Yesterday afternoon we went for a 'tour' of all the local alleyways, and passage ways ending up at our local park.  This was Alex's idea and he thoroughly enjoyed exploring parts of our neighbourhood that he hasn't seen before.  Scooting through the leaves wasn't quite as much fun as you would imagine - the leaves get caught in the scooter wheels stopping it.
However, scooting through puddles (while dressed as a ninja turtle) is the best of fun!
After a lovely church service this morning we headed out to Graves Park to feed the animals and play in the playground.  Alex particularly enjoyed feeding this little calf
and the very greedy sheep!
Crafting wise it is time for another Quirky Crafts challenge, this time set by me.  As I am very much enjoying our sunny autumn I chose 'Anything but a card with autumn colours' as the theme.  We have a sponsor this week, Robyn's Fetish, and they kindly gave us all a stamp to work with.  Mine was 'Nuts about Squirrels', which you can see at the bottom of my scrapbook layout.  I couldn't resist scrapbooking these photos of Alex playing in the sun last Autumn (I am somewhat behind with my scrapbooking!) and so used background paper from Best Creation Inc which was full of glitter on the leaves, then layered the two photos onto some speckled dark yellow card, then added leaf ribbon from Dovecraft, I also added some extra leaves punched out of copper card, and stamped some trees and leaves in the bottom right corner.  I am entering this layout into MTTC 'one ribbon, 2 images, 3 papers', SSS 'Eerie inspiration' (my inspiration came from the bottom right photo), CCT 'got glitter' (most of the leaves are glittery, not sure how well that shows up in the photo though), Paperplay 'wood' (plenty of trees and branches here), All sorts 'Autumn colours' and Speedy Fox 'Leaves' challenges.
