I love this season of Fall, and I love celebrating the things in my life for which I am grateful.  I combined the color challenge of Dynamic Duos this week with the layout of Card Positioning Systems #285 and came up with a creation of gratitude.  The color I chose for my Dynamic Duos combo is Memento Cantaloupe.  I used the rock and roll technique with the Hero Arts leaf images that I have had in my stash for a long time.  The sentiment is also Hero Arts.  These images and sentiments never get old. I pull them out every Autumn.  It's hard to see, but the vanilla squares are embossed with PTI Woodgrain IP, and the background of the vanilla panel is embossed with PTI's linen IP.  I am grateful for your visit today.  Enjoy this wonderful season.

Blog Header Inspiration

CFC72:  Create a project inspired by your blog header

The challenge over at CAS-UAL Fridays this week is brilliant!  My son was home sick yesterday so I was able to get into my craft room when I would otherwise be working. What a treat!  (Mother of the year, that's me... lol).  Anyway, this is my take on using my blog header for inspiration. I love the way it came out.  All supplies are PTI except the sentiment which is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Spooky Halloween!

I had fun looking through my Halloween stash today and coming up with this card.  My color inspiration was Dynamic Duos #20 and CASual Fridays CFC70, and my design was taken from Retro Sketch #29.  Thank you for coming by.  Have a great day!

What's Up?

I finished this card days ago, but have had lots of computer problems and Blogger has not been my friend lately.  This is my take on the latest Runway Inspired challenge which closed last night.  I really like the way it turned out and wish I could have squeaked it in for the challenge, but c'est la vie.  Thank you for coming by. Have a beautiful day.

Happy Hour

This creation is for the Moxie Fab World Focal Point Challenge.  I love this ribbon - it is so summery. While we are breathing the last breaths of summer, I thought I would do a summer themed project with it. The Paper Smooches images and the PTI Impression Plate were the perfect ingredients for this project.  Thanks for stopping in.

Thinking of You

Oh happy day! I finally got to sit down and create something today.  I always think that summer is going to afford me so much time for creating, but it never works out that way. I have been joyously running around doing fun things and soaking up a lot of beach time with my boys, so I can't complain.  Today was a rest and recharge day, so I went right to my happy place.  I also figured out why I was not getting sharp photos and fixed it with a minor adjustment, so I am a happy camper.

This is my take on the Dynamic Duos challenge this week.  I had to switch out Lucky Limeade for  PTI's New Leaf.  Really enjoyed this color scheme.  Thanks so much for stopping in today.  I hope  I am "back in the saddle" as the saying goes...
