Fall fun with CK.

The October CK magazine has been out for a month already....but I have to say it is a WINNER issue (& no I am not biased :o). If you don't have one yet, it is worth looking for in the stores or online. It is jam packed with super Fall ideas, creative tips & tricks & articles that are a great read!!! I loved the photo tips in Top 10 photos to take with leaves this Fall.

Well being Friday means the weekend is almost here.....YAY! although I have visions of having to get stuck in to my scrap area & do some purging & tidying. I need more space.
Have a goodie!


  1. I really love all your articles in the latest issue Kim. Absolutely fab!! Have a wonderful weekend. How is the weather down there in the Cape?

  2. Love your work Kim! "so rich" took my breath away! I grabbed this issue at Target and couldn't put it down, so l let the kids play in the toy isle for 30 min. :D

  3. I saw these layouts in the magazine last week, and fell in love with them. So amazing! Also, thanks for listing your favorite edge punches. I have never seen the stamped edge punch before. I am gonna have to get my hands on that one!

  4. Ummm....I have a confession.....I absolutely LOVE your style, and was SO excited to see so many of the pages were yours! yes.....I AM a Kim Watson groupie! I know there are more of you out there! :) Thanks for inspiring my creative sprit!

  5. Wow the LOs look even better on your blog than in the magazine!

  6. Love that LO Kim.... so special! Guess i better find a copy of this issue :)

  7. YOU are the best thing that has happened to Creating Keepsakes lately...I decided not to renew my subscription since they just decided to cut down on the # of issues they were going to make per year. The punch of colors in the first layout and the leaves are awesome...and the concept and story behind the so sweet.
