Scrapbook Challenge 2

Hello there! Here is another challenge we did recently at work.

And this is how I interpreted it.

I hope you are staying warm and cozy. It's pretty cold in these parts. Snow is on the forecast. :(

Scrapbook Challenge #1

Hello there! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Fall day because I think I am. So at work, we have started to do challenges once a week. We each take a turn and come up with one. This challenge was by the awesome Ann-Marie! We were to interpret this photo in anyway we liked.

Supplies: AC Cardstock Kraft (71464), Peacock (71471), Crestview Court (35074), Lullaby Thickers (42959), Bliss Thickers (53031), Fountain (59200), Gazeebo (42176), White Laced Ribbon (58208), White Pom Pom Ribbon (58206), Memory Marker (6107)

This is what I came up with. I was inspired by the straw in the photo. I use yellow patterned paper and Kraft AC cardstock and of course the teal.

About the photos: I rode bikes with some friends over to Balloon Fest bright and early the weekend of the 4th of July. We then biked over to Kneaders for their famous bottomless french toast.

It's Fall

(Darlene and me going for a walk on the path behind our place)

I think I have said that before and I think I have said how much I love it. It's fall break for me right now and I am soaking every minute of it in. Yes, I still have homework, and yes I am procrastinating. It will get done after I have some fun for once. :) Have a great weekend!

Sorry I have not blogged for almost over a month. Sorry I have not paid attention to you. I'm still alive somehow. Life sure gets in the way. Fall break is almost here. That's one thing I need. I'm going to treat myself to a craft night with good friends, hopefully some pumpkin goods, and reading a Nicholas Sparks book. Yes you heard it. I am making time to read a book and I am glad to say that it helps me pause on the things that I have to do that stress me out. It feels good.

On a happy note: There is this blog that I have been following for awhile now and I can't get enough of how cute this little family is and what good they do. They are working on adopting a baby girl from Ethiopia, but they need our help. I think that if I can give them at least $10 to help bring this baby girl home, I have done good in the world. NOT only are they trying to raise money, they are giving away 5 different groups of bundles that are valued $300 and more! (I bet you can guess the one that I want to enter in) I hope you think about it, but remember the give-aways end Sunday night.

I put The Anderson Crew button in my side bar to their blog. ------>
I hope you'll check it out. Lot's of fun stuff she's giving away!
