new layout

A layout I created from a sketch at Pink Sketches. I've had these pictures of Megan and her pink wellies since her 16th birthday.
All she wanted that year was a pair of Wellies. They were not as popular as they are now and we couldn't even find a pair. Anywhere.
I was so desperate, that when we finally found some at Nordstrom's, I was willing to pay just about anything! Fortunately, common sense said No! and we didn't spend big bucks for some rubber boots!! Megan found these pink ones at K-Mart and was just as happy with them. For a lot less money.

Guest Designer

I'm so pleased!! I was asked to be guest designer on Scrapping Out LOUD this week. The challenge was to design a page using only one motif. I used stars. Check out their blog - they have a wonderful design team and a great challenge every week!

Fall apples

We have been getting the best apples lately! Yummy Honey Crisp and tart McIntosh. Nothing says fall like apples (unless it's pumpkins!)
This apple clock is made from a shape I purchased from an Etsy store called Say it with Letters. They sell custom cut letters and shapes. My husband cut the circle out for the clock, I covered the apple with patterned paper, inked the edges, tied on some raffia and added Prima leaves.

Perfect Weekend

What a busy, wonderful weekend!
On Saturday, I went to stamp club and had a sewing lesson. (Actually, I learned how to thread my new machine!!)
Sunday found me eating cupcakes in Hudson, Ohio, at Main Street Cupcakes. If I could move anywhere I wanted to, Hudson would be on the list! It is a wonderful town, filled with great shops and beautiful homes.
The cupcakes there are soooo good. I had a new one today that I fell in love with: toffee & coffee.
Some of my other favorites are:
pineapple coconut, hazelnut coffee, lemon, pumpkin spice, cup of java and blueberry lemon.
After cupcakes, we went to Archiver's, where I got the new Cosmo Cricket Christmas line. It's so cute and has a very 50's/60's feeling to it.
Anyway, I need to clean up my craft room. It's a huge mess! But what I really feel like doing is going outside to enjoy this glorious weather. I noticed today that some of the trees are already changing. I saw some beautiful red and yellow leaves. And the nights have been quite a bit cooler. Which is fine with me, because I love fall and snow and winter!
Chiquita loves winter too; she likes to snuggle with her snowflake blanket and penguin friend!

Moments Recorded

The challenge for September is to use staples, tape and a page from a book. There is also a sketch to follow.
Check out what the DT made - this is mine. First day of school for my Dad, back in the 30's.
