Sketchy Thursdays...A Perfect Fall Day

I heard about the Sketchy Thursdays blog a while back while on another scrappers blog, but, haven't had much time to stop and check out their sketches.  I finally got around to taking a  peek last week and absolutely couldn't resist this sketch!!!  This was so out of the box for me, but, SO much fun!!  It all just kind of fell in place...that never happens for me! 
I had big plans to put the pictures in a circle using Photoshop, but, it turns out I'm not that good!  I can't figure out how to do the wedges.  So, I did what I could and opted for five pictures instead of six.  I'm pretty happy with the results regardless and look forward to trying more Sketchy Thursday sketches!!

I've actually had this layout completed for almost a week now.  But, with very little daylight these days, I'm having trouble getting a good picture.  I will make another attempt tomorrow and see if I can improve it.  In the meantime, I should mention that the leaves are edged with gold glitter (they came that way) and I added gold Stickles between the scallops on the circle for the "sparkle" part of the challenge.

  5. Wow! This is beautiful. Love the dark background paper and how it contrasts so well with the golds and oranges in the rest of your layout.
