MME Layout Sketch Challenge

Yesterday I joined the My Mind's Eye card challenge (here), so today I thought I'd take a crack at the layout challenge, too! The challenge is to create a layout with a Fall theme and use this sketch...

And here is my take...
This is my son and my nephew at the pumpkin patch last week.

I really wish I could've gotten a better, true-color photo (the colors are much brighter in person).. but it's been gloomy cloudy all weekend and expected to continue the next few days.. so this is as good as it gets :) I used the MME Fine & Dandy "True Blue" collection. It's not really a fall collection, but I thought the teal/orange/yellow/brown colors were okay for Fall so I made it work :) I also added alot of doodling to this page. Sometimes I think I overdo it with the doodles. Maybe I should think like 'less is more', but I can't help it lol Once I draw a little thing, I have to draw somewhere else, and somewhere else.. and it's hard to stop.

Hi, my name is Abby and I'm a doodleholic ;)

All supplies used are from My Mind's Eye except for the cardstock and floss.
