    Happy October everyone!! Welcome to a new month of challenges.

    I have created a simple mood board for this month's inspiration challenge. Here in the northern hemisphere we are moving into autumn and for me the season alone is inspiring! However, your page does not have to be fall focused - you can take inspiration from the colors, the perspective of the photos, the natural elements, the quote (starting over sounds good about now!), etc.

    Here's my page inspired by apples and fall colors!

    Gentle Reminder: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the October Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    Looking forward to seeing your pages!

    Thanks! The quote felt really timely to me - I think we could all use a fresh start!

    Normally I Would Be Scrapping About How Much I LOVE! Fall! & I Do...But This Layout Has A Specific Purpose Today...& It's A Bit Of A Difficult Subject Matter For Me Personally...Ray & I Have Been Living In The Same Apartment Complex For Over 20 Years Now...The Building Was Just Sold & Bought By New Owners!...We Just Felt In Our Hearts That Something Life-Changing Was About To Happen!...& It Did! Yesterday Now...After Many Inspectors Came & Went In A Few Weeks!...We Were Told That The Entire Building Is Being Restructured...And Our Apartment Is Being Gutted Completely!...They Are Turning The Building Into Condo Type Apartments That Are Furnished & Wi-Fi Included In The Rent!...The Rent Will Most Likely Double!...They Predict That About 60% Of The Tenants Will Move Out!...But They Don't Care...It's All About Their Bottom Line Here...It's A Business!...& WAIT FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...We ARE BEING EVICTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...We Have 115 Days! To Get The HE**! OUT!...And Find A New Place To LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...Ray Wants To Be Out By The End of November...Before The First Snow Storms Hit Us!!!!...

    So There's That...Smack In The Face!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...OMG!...And I Just Found Out A Few Days Ago That I'm Going To Have Minor/Major Surgery On Oct.23rd...Blood Work On The 20th & Surgery On The 23rd!...I Have Been Waiting For 4 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now For My HERNIA! SURGERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...I'm FLABERGHASTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...Surgery Out Of The Blue!...After 4 Years Of Waiting!...How Could All This Be Happening NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!...I Have To Re-Coop From Surgery...& Literally Pack Up Our Lives!...& Get Out!...

    I Was So Overwhelmed Yesterday...I Cried A Little!...Got Angry A Little!...Then Calmed Down!...We Are Both Still Reeling!...But I've Accepted Everything Now!...So I Started Creating A Ton Of Layouts!...It Filled My Time! & My Brain!...So I Saw This Challenge Here...All About Fall Colors!...I Bought A New Kit From Forever Joy Called Second Spring!...It's All About Fall's! Beautiful! Colors!...So Off! I Went To Scrap About my Feelings!...The Main Theme Of The Layout Is "BURIED:...Feeling BURIED!...Being BURIED!...I Think You Get The Theme...

    So I'm In The Background...You Can See The Top Of My Head!...My Hands Holding My Camera!...A Bit Of My Denim Jacket! & My Scarf!...But That's All You Can See!...I'm Lost! & BURIED! Behind All The WA! & Autumn BEAUTY!...You Can Even See The Butterflies There Too!...LOL!...I Always Have To Throw In That HOPE! Factor!...No Matter What Life Will Throw At Me...[Us]...We Will Survive!...We Will Move On!...We Will Give This Place The Finger! & Say Good-Bye!...Albeit With A Few Tears!...But We Will Move On!...To Where We Don't Know Yet!...But We Will Figure It All Out!...Somehow!!!...So This Layout Visualizes How I Felt In That Moment...

    *A Special Thanks! To Everyone Who Read The Whole Story...I Wasn't Gonna Post The Whole Story...But I Said..WELL!...This Is The Absolute! Truth!...So Now You All Know!...[We'll Anyone Who Visits My Gallery!...That Is...]...

    *For My As A Matter Of Fact:ME Layout-I Used:Second Spring-ForeverJoy

    I loved this challenge! I used the Fall vibe, the pumpkins, the color gray and leaves as my inspiration.
