About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Happy Autumn


Kim Kesti posted a challenge on her blog to use her card (check the top one) as inspiration to create your own. I really like how bold her card is, I thought I would try falling leaves. It kinda speaks to me. (of course it could be saying, hey crazy lady go to bed) but there is a definite vibe there. On a different note, someone please tell me why potty training is so important, would it be so bad to wear diapers until you are ten....something to think about. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
Supplies
Cardstock: SU - chocolate chip, a really pretty red that I don't know the name of
Stamps: SU - Autumn Splendor

hehe! Love your thoughts on potty training. My niece was almost 3 until her mother had the grocery clerk tell her there was a 'new law' that stated she was too old to wear diapers and, therefore, couldn't sell them to her. It worked. She used the potty from then on....

Love your card. The leaves are gorgeous! What a great design!!

Whoa! Gorgeous! I love those leaves. Beautiful work. ( I can't answer about potty training... that's actually a really good question ;) )

Love those pretty cut-out leaves! The colors really make me think of fall (which I wish would arrive in south Texas sometime soon-haha)! Such a fun design! :)

Oh! Gorgeous, Sarah! Totally loving this. The layering is an awesome take on my scallops. And I love your sentiment, too! Great job!

I like your take on the original. The jumble of leaves is just like the real thing in the fall.
