Good-bye Summer

Although warmer temps are trying to surface, you can tell the seasons are in transition.  The plants are showing signs of fall.  And crafting is turning to Halloween and autumn leaves.  Here is a 6x9 scrapbook page I made as a last hurrah to summer which officially will be over in three days.  The page will be added to my grandkids' album, opposite from a page of summer photos.

I took images from the Crafty Secrets See You Soon digital kit and colored them with my software program. I placed in the lower corner of the scene "see you soon" from the kit.  After printing, I added final touches with Copic markers (including autumn leaves).
The sentiment "Good-bye Summer!" was computer generated and punched with a Stampin' Up label punch.

I chose a dress color and cardstock to give an autumn feel.  Patterned paper is Basic Grey Ambrosia--very old from my stash.  The flowers represent the warm summer sun.  Materials are old, from my stash (paper, gems, ribbon, Maya Road  Winter Jewel Flowers).  Lovin' that I'm using them up.
