Fall is in the air!

I love fall! From the changing weather to the fresh smell of apples in the air! Fall is hands down my favorite time of the year!

This past weekend I carved out some "me" time and created a few just "for fun" projects...nothing that I had to do but rather things that I just did for fun!

This first project was inspired by "up cycling" my new addiction...I am really enjoying finding new uses for things that I once just threw out...crafter's beware this is addicting! This little box held chipboard and now it is a gift box holding candy corn! The little card was cut from my cricut. I am also addicted to shape cards lately :) Anyway, this little gift set is for a friend of mine...I hope she enjoys it.

So with my new "addiction" of "up-cycling" I have also been going through things and trying to use old supplies. Last year I had to have this little stamp from Micheal's dollar bin...and I never got a chance to use it...so here is a little card I made with it and some of the little yellow bicycle Halloween papers....(Oh I just love little yellow bicycle!)

Also, I realized with all of the crazy things going on around here...I never posted a picture of Jackson in his new (well not so new now) cast...so here he is...

Along with broken bones, skinned knees and split open foreheads (Gavin ;)we have decided to join in on a few other activities (smile)here is a little quick shot of Ashlee at Gymnastics.

Lots more to share later in the week! Have a super week everyone!

I'm just loving all your creations & I'm happy that Jackson is doing well. Having kids hurt is the toughest thing...you just feel so helpless.

Gymnastics is a great thing for your daughter. Looks like she's loving it!
