Recently I treated myself to some little bits and bobs from Bramble Fox.  I get a monthly kit from Mind the Scrap and in the November kit we had a couple of perspex titles from them so I had a little peruse of the Bramble Fox site.  When I saw the Falling Leaves set I knew exactly which photo I would use it with – the first one I took on my new iPhone 7+ and the one that instantly made me fall in love with its photography prowess!

I used a piece of Graphic 45 Autumn paper, from the Seasons collection, to ‘fussy cut’ the wreath, and layered this onto the reverse of another piece of paper (Autumn Collective) from the same range.  I then fussy cut the sunflowers from a second piece of Autumn and layered these onto the photo and wreath.

Then only thing left to do was to add the Falling Leaves Perspextive title and to tuck the leaves around the wreath.  As a final touch I added a Fun Flair (also from Bramble Fox which says ‘Our Favourite Place’ as the photo just happened to be taken at Marks Hall - our favourite place for autumn walks. 

I then made a second layout using the Shine Bright Perspextive as the title and 'Chit Chat' Fun Flair to document Gracia's first day working in hospital as a Junior doctor, using the Fun Flair as bullet points. 

I chose Kaisercraft's Lilac Whisper for this layout as it had a turquoise, similar to the turquoise on the Fun Fair. 

I typed the blocks of journaling, the Fun Flair made excellent journaling prompts, and then printed it off to add to my page. 

So there we have it - another couple of life events documented.  I will certainly be perusing the Bramble Fox shop again in the not too distant future!

Reasons to be cheerful:-
* I have spent a lovely weekend, meeting up with Gracia at Mum's.
* My cold seems to be on it's way out - just wish I could say the same about this blessed caugh!
* It's nearly Christmas and it's only three more sleeps until Gracia is home.

I bet that by now she starts her day on the ward without a second thought! She worked so hard to get where she is and you must be so very proud of her and what she has achieved. Now all you have to do is convince her that she needs to find a job closer to 'home'! Enjoy having her back for Christmas and have a wonderful time together x
