Falling Leaves + Giveaway winner!

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  Saturday we had a great day--sun was shinning and the temperature was around 58 degrees.  The only downside was that it was really windy! But we didn't care we were playing outside in the morning and we went to the park in the afternoon.  I just love having the kids outside!  Sunday; however, winter returned and it was only 40 degrees.  Come on Spring!

I was able to get some crafting done!  I finished 2 layouts and I made 2 cards.  I also started another sketch for a card that I had a dream about.  I love it when that happens. Yes, I know I am obsessed with this hobby! Kathy over at Scrap Our Stash gave us the new challenge for April and it had been in the back of my mind all weekend, but then the idea came to me in my sleep. 

On to the winner of my Michael's Gift Card.  I used the site to pick a winner.  So without further ado--

Number 12 is ................Pam!  Hooray Pam! You are the lucky winner!
 Please email me you address and I will mail this out to you right away

Now going from Spring to Fall.  This is a layout that I made using some old Basic Grey paper.  I really used a lot of my stamps on this layout.  It was so fun.

I used the stamps to create the journaling card and the tab above the first picture.  I also used the Ali Edwards stamps.  I used the Silhouette to create the title.

Here is the close up of the bottom part where I stamped the plain paper with my Hero Arts leaf stamps to create a pattern paper.  I used different stamps and different colors of distress inks.  I really like how it turned out. 
bazzill, basic grey. paper trey ink, tim holtz, hero arts, ali edwards. spellbinders, silhouette

I hope everyone has a great day.  I will be back tomorrow with my layout for the Scrap Our Stash March Challenge.  The challenge is to dust off that tool or supply item that you have been keeping but not using and use it.  Go HERE for more detail.

Thanks for stopping by and I will see ya tomorrow!
