Your Appointment with Friday

Happy almost Halloween to you! For this week's photo prompt I decided that it was finally time for.....

It's Tradition

*our little pumpkin* *goofy doggie*

Gloria and I enjoyed this photo prompt around the same time last year, and I thought it would be nice excuse to share another Fall tradition this October too!  In general I am not a traditional kind of girl, but there's something about Autumn that draws me towards loving some of the same activities.  Last year I shared my chrysanthemum planting tradition.  This year I am sharing the annual *Ponyo with pumpkins photo*!!!  You can see last year's photo HERE (and little Ponyo was only 13 weeks in that sweet!).  Do you have any traditions during the Fall?

Love, Carrie

Your Appointment with Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  This weeks photo prompt is to.....

Take a photo with a pumpkin

*take a photo with a pumpkin* *pumpkins!* *our choices* *pumpkin patch*

For this prompt you can use your tripod, have someone else take the photo, or whatever else you think sounds the photo I took of Ryan and my feet with our pumpkin choices in between : ) 

Ryan was sweet enough to happily take these photos of me while we were at the pumpkin patch by our house a couple evenings ago.  And he even let me take a couple pics of him with the green pumpkin (which I'll share on my Blume and Grow blog in a few days).  The ambiance was pretty cool since it was starting to get dark in this place filled with all these bright orange pumpkins, hanging lights, and the typical kiddie rides.

Enjoy your pumpkin time this week!
Love, Carrie

Quail Gardens Mini

As a little treat to ourselves, Nely and I each created minibooks using our Quail Botanical Gardens / *Explore Nature* photos!  You can click on the collage that shows each of my minibook pages to see them larger in Flickr.  The design was pretty much the same for each section.  The first photo has paint splatter, and Thickers/alpha sticker text for a title.  Then there is a piece of Hambly with two 4x6 pages back to back, with the next page decorated with sewn paper strips and an embellishment.  There also is an occasional 5x7 photo page with back to back photos thrown in.  The last page is an envelope filled with a few extra 4x6 photos, and an instax.  Fitting so many photos into this album was a little tricky, but the whole process was really fun!!!

I'll be back on Friday with a new photo prompt for the weekend.....until then, I hope you enjoy these lovely Fall days!

Love, Carrie
