August Blog Hop!!



I love this day...it's so fun to see what everyone has come up with! This month's theme: "August is the month that Papertrey celebrates all things autumn!" I played around with my Autumn Abundance set and practiced coloring with my Copics.



I definitely think of leaves when I think Autumn... the crunch under feet, raking them up and for my kids- jumping in the piles!



Thanks for coming by!
Melissa
