One Autumn Morning

Autumn has really arrived here in the Mid West. Yesterday was 80 degrees and today we are at a whopping 46 degrees. With that in mind, it was easy for me to create this scrapbook page. I love having pages ready so that I can just add a few precious photo's and insert them into my book. 

I kept this page pretty simple. I dug into my autumn stamp drawer and found this beautiful poem by Nita Harksell. This is a Great Impression stamp that I inherited from a friend. It is One Autumn Morning coded J48 from Great Impressions. Not sure how recent this stamp is, but it is a gem. I couldn't even find it on the blog store site, so it really must be older. 
I also used a die of autumn leaves that embosses the veins of the leaves. Not sure who manufactured this die. I picked it up at a resale shop and I just love it. 
I  used Stampin'Up Four Frames for the poem title and the place a stamp tool to adjust the poem title. I used a burlap looking paper from the Paper Studio.

Well, my page is all ready, waiting for my special photo's. I am submitting this page for the Great Impressions Challenge Blog.  Thanks for stopping in today. Have a beautiful autumn day.

Just saying hello

Okay, autumn is here, but I am just not ready for the colder chilly days. As I was reading all the blogs that I subscribe to, I came upon the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge #161. This challenge is based on the scripture from Psalm 52:10 and we are to use a tree in our project.
 "But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; 
I trust in God's unfailing love for ever and ever." 
Psalm 52:10

World Card Making Day 2012

So, Happy World Card Making Day to you all. Hope everyone can make at least a few cards today. I started out with the Penny Black Blog to take a photo of my crafting area will I will be today. So, here is my little corner of the basement in St. Louis, MO.

  Yep, I'm in the basement in a little corner, but it is my girl cave. LOL.

So, I am off to scan a few blogs and facebook to see what is happening for World Card Making Day and to get a few cards made for challenges. Hope you all have a happy day.

My 15 Minute Creativity List

Wow, did I ever have fun today. I actually PLAYED with no pressure, no colors requirements, no sketch to follow, just let the creativity juices flow.

 I follow a blog called Artsyville and there is a post today called List it Tuesday: 15 minute creativity .  The idea is to create a list of creative things  can be done  in 15 minutes or less. So, I viewed a few of the posts that are linked in and came up with a fun page for my mixed media journal.
 This is going to be a good prompt for me for several reasons.
1. I used stamps that I haven't used in ages. Wow, are these still fun stamps!!!
2 Sometimes I get off track of what I need to do.
3 It shows that I can be creative
4. Just the title alone will get me excited to start on or finish a project.

So, here is my fun project for today. Mind you, it is no masterpiece or something so fantastic that will make you ooooh or ahhhh, it's just a fun piece.  Oh and I used more alphabet sticker on just these two pages than I have used in the past 3 years.

Thanks for stopping by today. Thanks to Aimee and  the other ladies who inspired me to create my list.
Have a great day.
