Hi, everyone! It's a pleasure to be able to take a little break from chores on this Tuesday to share a slice of my life with you. It's October, and apples are in season! So, first up I have an apple-related layout (pictured above) to share with you.

I based my page design on the current sketch from Sketchbook 365.

And my color scheme comes from The Color Room.
My layout commemorates a trip that my family made last year to a heritage orchard. We attended an apple tasting, and we got to sample all kinds of apples in all kinds of forms. In my journaling, I noted each family member's favorite: slices of Yellow Transparent apples, canned Malinda apples, and crab apple jelly.
I upcycled the negative portions of different alphabet sticker sheets to add interest to my layout.
Of course, working on this layout made me crave apples. I satisfied that craving with a cup of apple cider. I prefer a dark, rich, cloudy apple cider, as you see from the photo.
I made my "Apple Tasting" layout over the weekend, and then I thought I'd be done with apples for awhile. But yesterday I met a friend for lunch, and I ended up ordering apple pizza. I never had anything like this before. My pizza was topped with bleu cheese, crumbled bacon, apple slices, and walnuts. Yum!
The restaurant where I got my apple pizza (Café 318) is near Lake Minnetonka. It was such a beautiful day yesterday, and I got a great picture of the deep blue lake, with autumn trees in the background. I just wanted to share the photo with you before I sign off. I'll be linking this photo up with Our Beautiful World, where the theme this week is "October."
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Have a great day!
