Just wanted to share some of our fall frolicking so far. Highlights this fall include the following:

4th Anniversary Getaway Weekend to The Georgian Manner B&B in Hocking Hills/Logan, Ohio

I will share trick or treat adventures next week, since we still have one more candy collecting event planned!

Have a Happy Halloween!

WCMD Winners Announced at PaperCrafts

So I decided to enter 4 cards into the WCMD contest over at PaperCrafts. After what seemed like an eternity they announced the 20 winners today, and I am one of them!! WooHoo! Happy dance breaks have been ongoing all day- did I mention that I am finally getting published, yep the March/April 2012 issue will feature one of my cards. As if that wasn't enough, there is an amazing prize pack worth $1,000- oh my goodness is this really real? I'm still pinching myself. But here is the proof, the blog post link:

Just wanted to share my happy moment! Have a fabulous fall weekend! We hope to carve our pumpkins in the morning. Also coming soon, some great pumpkin patch photos from last weekend.

Moxie Fab Inspired Card

Well what a week it has been here, a little crazy. During all the madness I popped over to the Moxie Fab Blog and discovered this lovely Tuesday Trigger: Finesse the Dress:
(I would totally wear this dress, by the way)
 Anyhow, I was inspired mostly by the color combination- really love the contrast. But I also love the stitching so I added some of that too, just in the opposite combination. So I put together a quick card from Jillibean Soup's Sweet and Sour Soup collection:
Materials List: Jillibean Soup/Sweet & Sour paper: Shredded Cabbage, Tomato Sauce & Bite Size Bits; Soup Label/sentiment: Cats eye/Chestnut brown ink: Martha Stewart/gemstones-blue; turquoise embroidery floss

and a close-up shot:

Added a quick bite size bit for the inside greeting it reads: "You're only given a little spark of madness, you mustn't lose it..." by Robin Williams- Ha Ha love that quote, hopefully that leaves you smiling too. :)
