Challenge #31

Posted by The Design Experiment on 7:44 PM
Hi Experimenters!!!

Wow, this week just flew by! Did it fly for you to?

I'm always wishing that the beautiful Autumn months would last longer than they do. It seems as if we say goodbye to Summer and before we know it, the Holiday Season is upon us! There is just something magical about Fall! The smell of the crisp air, the burning leaves, trips to the pumpkin patch, hayrides...it's just such a FUN Season! So this week we ask:

What are your favorite things about the fall? Is it the cool weather, the changing of the leaves, fun fall recipes? What do you love most about fall?

Friday Night Lights
By Leslie

Leslie Says:

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of fall
is how much I love to go to the high school football games on
Friday nights. I love the chill in the air, the game, the excited fans,
the popcorn, the blankets...and most of all the halftime!! My daughter
plays in her high school marching band. The thrill in the air when
the band takes the field is felt by everyone around us!
So that's what fall says to me...


My favorite part of fall is most definitely Friday
Night football at the high school. Watching the
game, hearing my sweet girl & the band at 1/2time, the chill in the air, hot chocolate, popcorn....it all just screams fall :)

Fall Traditions
By Sasha


When I think of Fall, I think of
Warm fuzzy socks that will make my feet feel cozy
Nice cup of cocoa that will make my body warm
Beautiful changing leaves that will make my photos pop
Time to prepare of the holidays and big feasts
The changing weather and the stiff breeze of coolness
I think winter is just around the corner.

Autumn Walks to School

Emily Says:

I took these pictures last week on the way to school with my kids. I LOVE living here, so close to Mt. Rainier, and wanted to remember these Autumn afternoon walks to PM Kindergarten forever!

A Portrait Of Fall:
By Dena

Dena Says:

One of the greatest things about living in the Pacific Northwest is experiencing our Fall season. It is the most beautiful time around here. We have two huge dogwood trees in our front yard that provide more than an ample amount of leaves for Zoe to play in. I love watching her have fun rolling about and just plain ole going crazy in our yard. So yeahhh, I do love Fall!

As you know, we are being sponsored monthly be the oh-so-generous Scrap N' Art Magazine! They are sponsoring us here at The Design X every month! We will be giving away a VERY GENEROUS prize pack each month for those of you who have played along!

Here's how it works:

There will be approx. 4 challenges a month. All YOU have to do is play along with at least one challenge during the month to be eligible for the Prize Pack! Hint: The more challenges you play along with, the better shot you have of winning!
At the end of the month we will put your name in a hat (one time for each challenge participated in during the month) Ex: if you do two challenges, your name will go in the hat two times. Make sense? Still with me?!

Love all those gorgeous Fall projects. The DT did a fabulous job once again!

We don't get many fun colors for fall here at the coast, so it's all about the pumpkin patches and pumpkin hunts!
