Can't get enough October Afternoon

*warning loads of scrappy goodness to share*

I woke up this morning with a specific picture of D & me, and layout design for said picture in my head.  I even got out of bed early so I could get on paper before my breakfast date.  (I sure hope this keeps happening, twice in one week is definitely a record for me)  Here's the end result.
fun right?!  Please excuse the poor crop.
And here are the cards I completed last week and promised to share.

All of the above made with the fabulous 5 & Dime Collection
I also made a couple of stitching focused cards, inspired by the every so talented Sasha Farina.
Patterned paper & bling: My Mind's Eye, Alphas: American Crafts, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Embroidery floss: DMC

A straight up lift of Sasha's design.  Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Patterned paper: Studio Calico, Butterfly: Cosmo Cricket, Sentiment: SRM stickers, Twin: The Twinery, Embroidery floss: DMC

One last layout to share.  This one was for a July sketch class that Katrina hosted over at My Scrapbook Nook.
Patterned Papers: October Afternoon (5 & Dime), Artisan Element: Pink Paislee, Mist: Studio Calico, rub on, and cardstock butterflies: Jenni Bowlin, Trim: May Arts, Alpha: American Crafts, Perls: Martha Stewart, Doily: Wilton, Punch: Marth Stewart, Buttons: assorted
This July Kit was definitely one of my favorites of the year from The Nook.  I still have some scraps of paper, and a bunch of chipboard, and shape stickers left.  I'm hoping to make a few book marks and tags out of them.  I'm sad to see it go though.

On a happier note did you notice that my last layout posted has been picked up for publication.  I'm thrilled to be seeing my work in the October issue of Scrap Street magazine.  A few of the writers are also Nook designers, so I think that's pretty cool.

I'll be leaving right away to pick up my babies from camp.  I'm so excited to see them.  The break was nice, though, I have to admit, and I'm sure they feel the same way :)  Tomorrow we're leaving for the lake.  We'll be back on Wednesday, as that evening we're off to see Hairspray the musical at Rainbow Stage, featuring George Wendt as Edna Turnblad (the mom).  If you don't know who George Wendt is this should help you.  The girls and I are pretty excited to see it live, and sing our little hearts out right along the rest of the cast.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm always touched that you choose to visit.
