I Was On The Hunt For
For the Monthly Theme
I Almost Gave Up.

Then I Noticed What I Was Wearing On
So I Am The Fall Colors For My Entry!

I look a bit like a cross between:
Little Red Riding Hood
The Headless Horseman...
Don't you think?

Fall color is all about the wonderful reds, rich and beautiful as shown in your image here, Little Red Riding Hood would be so envious Laura.

Love this, Pom. Love the composition with all that red color, and the veiling over your face makes you look so elegant. Kudos!

Hi Terry, Dooners, Nadia and Emile!!

Little Red it is! :) I like that way better since I do'nt even like riding horses. Maybe because when I tried the horse thing I lost my head??? HeeHee...

Thanks everyone. I'm on the go today but this was a treat to see you all here. Thanks for the sweet words and Emile, it's just not fair. ;)

So cool, Laura, and so very creative, as always! I don't know how you come up with these ideas in the first place, and then to execute them to perfection... marvelous work!
