Autumn for AJJ

I have take time out today which is a rather busy, but special day for my husband and myself.,
to make this digital page for the new challenge theme over at
where Valerie is hosting the new theme of...
Indian Summer/ Golden October/Autumn.
Valerie this is a fantastic  theme and I hope get all the ideas that sprung to mind into my journals.

This is how it all began, with a page  in my 8 x 8 inch journal, which is still waiting for more attention.I think you will agree that it is rather plain.
The only thing left to see is perhaps the quote.
The rest has been layered with images from Mischief circus kits as well as some of my own.

In case you wonder about  why this is a special day,
the clue is in the picture on the right, a page from one of my scrapbooks.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, you are most welcome.
