Thanks for stopping by the Autumn Blessings Blog Hop. You should have come from Tricia if not, please jump back to Lisa so you don't miss any of the fabulous projects along the way.  

I am so excited to be a part of this Hop with this wonderful group of ladies.  A big Thank  you goes to Lisa for putting this together. :)  

This is the time of year where everything seems to get so chaotic and everyone is rushing here and there to make sure you have the perfect Holiday season. You start out so excited but by the time you are done and the Holidays arrive, you are so exhausted, stressed and are glad its over. 

I am truly blessed to have a wonderful family. My children are by no means perfect and they drive me crazy many times...okay, more often than not. :)   But this is the time of year they all gather to go to the Halloween Fest at the local amusement park, Pumpkin Patch, Thanksgiving or even Black Friday Shopping. These are our yearly traditions they expect and love. 

Now as they grow, they bring their significant others and children.  Its funny when we show up at the pumpkin patch with a group of 10-15 and only 2 or 3 are children, because even their friends, my "other" children come to be part of our family traditions.  But I wouldn't trade it for the world. 

I love them all and with the recent unexpected loss of a loved one, it reminds me how much I am truly blessed and during the next few weeks and months, I'm going to remember to stop and enjoy these blessings as time they passes so quickly.  I'll also hug them each a little tighter because you just never know what tomorrow might bring.

So for my project I have made a mini book that highlights one of our Fall excursions to a local amusement park. I hope to make more of these little memory books to keep the memories close at hand after the holidays have passed and I am stressed out.  :)

For my Project, I used
 Best Creations Hello Fall 6X6 paper
Assorted Stickles
Zutter Bind it all Book Covers
Various Buttons, brads,  flowers, ribbon and embellishments from my stash. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. Now head on over to the fabulous Melissa to see what wonderful project she has created!

And if you get lost along the way, here is the entire line up.
