One of the perks of living is Muskoka is the gorgeous colours that surround you come the fall season.
Portage Road is one of the most beautiful areas to drive through this time of year. The trees, ablaze in colour, form a canopy over the road and you are literally driving under a kaleidoscope of shades of red, gold and orange.
I took this picture at the beach on Portage Road. It is one of my favourite fall photos.

This layout is based on the Laura Whitaker October 1st sketch posted on Stuck?!
Stuck?! partnered with Color Me Scrappy, who created a fall themed colour combination for us to create with. We're challenged to play along with both the sketch and the colour combo and link up with both challenge sites, for a chance at extra prizes! Who could resist? Not me.
I used paper with a barn board pattern to draw attention to the old boathouse at the edge of the lake. Black seemed like a great canvas on which to showcase the green and red leave. Using brown and gold turned out to be a great colour combo for the title. The maple leaf is embellished with a bow made of jute and an attached brass acorn.
