This and that . . .

Fall has arrived!  It's in the 40's this morning and raining.  The leaves are starting to turn color and drop to the ground.  My mums are in full bloom and gorgeous as ever.  I'm in the mood to do a little fall cooking on a day like today which will include a pot of beef stew and some pumpkin bread.
It's October 1st and that means the October scrapbook and card kits are up for sale at Artful Delight.

Today is World Card Making Day and over at Practical Scrappers there is a contest going on.  I made it through to the first round (make a card using pink) with my Surround Yourself card.
There are a total 40 cards that were chosen for the first round and I was thrilled to have mine chosen.   Now the voting is up to you to decide which 20 cards out of the 40 will make it into the second round.  I'd love to have your vote.  To vote just leave a comment under Round One, Group Four for my card.  Commenting has been turned off so you won't see anyone else's comments.  You can see my card here.  

The Fall Issue of ScrapStreet.com Magazine is online and I have a layout published in it in their Feeling Punch category.  Check it out here.
I've been super busy lately spending time with mom and helping her with her adjustment into senior living.    I'm pleased at how well she has settled into her apartment and adapted to her new surroundings.  However, it's left me little free time to scrap. 
With that said, I'm leaving you with a little sneak peek of a layout that I'll share with you on Tuesday.
Thanks for stopping by!
