In celebration of fall

Well, the calendar says that fall has arrived. Tell that to the weather, okay? Nevertheless... in celebration of the new season, here are a few cards. I didn't get much creating done over the weekend. I was too busy playing with my vintage camera. More on that later. In my last post I used Webster's Pages papers on a heritage layout. I still had my Webster's papers on my work table, so I had to create a few cards with it before putting it away.

Now - about my vintage camera. I picked up an Argoflex Seventy-Five from Ebay and got it this weekend. I recently heard about how you can use your digital camera to take photos through the viewfinder of an older camera. It's called "ttv" which stands for through the viewfinder. Google it if you want more info. There is a ton of information out there. Here are a few of the pics I took.

My favorite is this Icee photo. When I was younger, me and my brother were treated to Icee's at an old country store on our weekend visits to our Grandma's house. It brings back so many memories.

You can see some more of my photos on the Pursuit of Craftyness blog. Well, it's time to get out those fall decorations and get busy around the house. Maybe we can coax the weather into turning down the heat a few digits.

Your vintage camera sounds really interesting! Looks like you are enjoying it too! :)

Very pretty cards you made. I love the Mother quote on the last one.

Yes, I am very happy that Fall is finally here. I started taking some pix of my decorations today!

Yummy cards!! I'm just totally in love with those papers!! I'm afraid to use mine all up!

I am finally posting the sweet 'I love your blog' post that you gave me. You were such a dear to choose me and then I took so long. I was posting about the contest and then I forgot about it!

Have a great week Melanie!
