Memories.....of another time

As I was pursuing my October issue (yes, I'm way behind on my subscriptions) of CK magazine I saw a layout and technique on page 78 for sugared flower accents. It was like being hit with a mac truck. Days after I've been dreaming of this page and I was flooded with memories of living in Massachusetts and that first ice as we transcend out of fall and into winter.

I knew after being haunted with these layout and scene images that I'd have to put it into actuality. So after nearly 3 days of tedious work I've finished the layout. I was hoping to find a better picture of the ice on the colorful fall foliage but was unable to. Maybe my friend Julie who still lives in MA could get one this year for me to replace this one with. :)

I hope you can see all the detail on these leaves. I used the following products:
Chocolate Cardstock - Close to My Heart
Autumn Terracotta Cardstock - CTMH
Olive Green Cardstock - CTMH
Dried Flowers B&T paper - SandyLion
Textured Brown B&T paper - The Paper Studio
Liquid Glass - CTMH
Cuttlebug leaf Dies
Sizzix Sidekick
Snow Glitter
dry embossing stylus
Metallic Decorative thread - Coats

The Gratitude quote was sent to me by my friend Deborah and of course the layout was inspired by CK Oct '07 issue pg 78. I altered the sugared flower accents and created my iced leaves. I rolled the Textured Brown paper to create the branches.
