Klutz extraordinaire

No, not a post about how I broke the Blackberry. Be patient. :)
I submitted this page for the cover of Scrapbook Trends for November. I used Scribble Scrabble's Autumn Afternoon collection, some of my very favorite fall papers to date. I love the unexpected green in them, which seem to be in all my fall photos:
Supplies: Scribble Scrabble Patterned paper Autumn Afternoon in Harvest stripes and A is for Apple; Scribble Scrabble Autumn Afternoon die cut journaling block; Scribble Scrabble Autumn Afternoon Chipboard shape; and Maya Road Chipboard Hearts; Making Memories Felt Alphas; Bazzil Ecru cardstock; Claudine Hellmuth Studio paint Red and green (on hearts)
That look of wonder? That's probably more like morbid fascination on J's part. I will be scrapbooking this photo again to include how I fell out of a tree that I climbed to take the photo. I can't believe I got the photo (clicking all the way down) and didn't land on my child, break my camera, or any bones in the process. Sheer luck, which I did not deserve for my brazen stupidity in climbing the tree to begin with. Happy Thursday to you! Until tomorrow.

Oh my brave woman to climb the tree for the shot! Maybe I should get braver. Does pulling over and rolling down a window and snapping a photo count as braver? Great shot.

How do you break a blackberry? Just curious. I have a feeling I will have one in a few years.

Marcie said...

Amazing shot! Climbing a tree to get the perfect photo is something I would do, BUT I WOULD break something!

Amy Coose said...

You are CRAZY!!! Love the fall LO-that pic is amazing!

Denise said...

OK...I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. If I didn't read that you had no injuries, I wouldn't be though. Honestly, falling out of a tree due to a quest for photos is the best. You just crack me up!

Kelly said...

Oh Danielle...Ouch!
