Savor Autumn Layout with Nevermore

When I saw the Nevermore paper pack, I didn't see Halloween screaming back at me. I saw more fall layouts. I really need a lot because my hubby and I love to take autumn photo trips.  This one below is what my scrapbook club will be doing on Saturday. I'm thankful for the beauty God has given us in the trees and flowers of autumn. We even captured a monarch butterfly probably refueling on its trip to Mexico. Having an arboretum in the Kansas City area makes fall photography especially enjoyable.

The Whisper gray paper has gears among other building symbols. I applied the gears idea to the idea of time and included a clock. 

 Here are close-up photos of the two stamped sentiments on the second page that are hard to see above. You can also see that I used marker to color the word "savor" on the cricut cut-out and the Cricut Artiste leaf that I colored with tiny drops of 3 reinkers spritzed with water on a large acrylic block. I pressed the leaf onto the blended ink and dried with my heat gun, which lightly curled the edges.

I will repeat the above sentiment from a CTMH Hostess stamp set: May the Lord bless you!
