Happy Saturday!  I don’t know about you, but Autumn has to be my favorite time of year.  I love the crispness in the air, the rustle of the leaves, and the beautiful fall colors that fill the trees and my favorite scrapbook galleries.  Take a look at the gorgeous fall pages I found to share with you today.

Colorful October – nhudao

This first layout, Colorful October by nhudao, caught my eye right away in the gallery.  I love the use of white space here — it feels so crisp and clean, much like the air this time of year.  I like that the paper blocks behind that sweet photo mimic the banner in the upper corner, right down to the use of black stitching.  I think her paper choices are fabulous, especially the plaid, as the soft pink and black made a nice addition to the usual fall pallet.  Finally, I love her use of that great quote for her journaling.

Fall Is For – Sucali

Fall Is For by Sucali also caught my eye right away.  The movement of her elements across the page reminds me of the wind moving the leaves across my yard – both delicate and hardy – the way so many Autumn days can be.  I like that Susan stuck with the smaller fall palette, the olive, rust and cream, that is prevalent in her photo.  It gives the layout a sense of quiet cohesiveness while still clearly saying fall.  All in all, just beautiful work.

Smile – erica zane

Smile by Erica Zane did exactly that, made me smile.  I think the photos are adorable, especially the one taken from above and looking down into that sweet grin.  Erica also kept to a smaller fall palette that lets her photos pop off the page against that wonderful floral background.  Keeping her elements simple also allows the ones she did use to shine.  I love the chunky frames, the flowers and the leaves, but I absolutely adore her two enamel pins, the deer and heart bubble, and the way she has them arranged.  Such a sweet touch to a great layout.

BlessedX3 – immaculeah

BlessedX3 by immaculeah popped out to me for at least three other reasons beyond her beautiful daughters.  First I love that immaculeah has concentrated on filling only the bottom third of her layout and left the upper two thirds bare, combining a gorgeous cluster with some wonderful white space.  Second, that cluster feels as riotous and natural as a slightly overgrown fall garden and every bit as beautiful.  Finally, reason number three is the pop of lace at the bottom.  It gives the layout just the right touch of feminine elegance while enhancing the smiles on the faces of her three blessings.

Hello October – KingsQueen82

Hello October by KingsQueen82 showcases some of the best things about fall — sweatshirts, pumpkins, hay bales and plenty of leaves.  I love KingsQueen82’s use of the wood background — even dressed up with paint splatters and dots it still feels like a fall hike in the woods.  The big leaf is definitely an eye catcher and makes a wonderful mat for her photo.  Both her large and small floral clusters are beautiful and anchor her photo well.  Finally I like the peaks of patterned papers and that big Hello October title.

Wonderfall – weaselwatchr

My final pick today is Wonderfall by weaselwatchr.  Again, I love the use of wood on a fall layout, and this dark wood is especially striking.  I like that her paper strips echo her photo strip and that she has kept her embellishments simple, which allows the photos to take center stage.  The leaf photos themselves are a wonderful combination of color and texture that says fall so perfectly.  Truly a wonderfall layout.

That’s it for me.  I hope you enjoyed today’s picks.  If you have time, please click on the individual links to leave some love for these memory keepers.  Thanks!  🙂
