Finally.....back to blogging


Wowzers! It's been way too long for me to be away. I've missed you guys. Have you missed me?

Life has finally settled down here at my house and hubby has a job again. (Whoo hoo!) Work has started back up for me and the kids are back in school so life is good. I am so thankful to all of my friends who sent up prayers for Richard to find a job. You're the best!!!!

I've had a little trouble finding my mojo lately but I think, with the help of some great new sets from The Cutting Cafe, it will return in no time. Here's a little something I came up with while playing around with her new Autumn Days set.


I love this new set. It has so many nice elements. Images, sayings, backgrounds. Absolutely perfect for Fall!

I started by changing the color of the print on the background, and both circle sentiments by using my Print Shop. Instructions on how to do this are on The Cutting Cafe site. It's super easy. If I can do it, anyone can. I colored the pumpkin image using my Copics. I love texture so I cuttlebugged a border top and bottom using my Frills folder. I then sponged some brown over the embossing and around the edges. It needed a little something extra and I didn't want to add ribbon, so I added a some punched borders and some brads.

Be sure to stop by Regina's site and check out all the other fun new stuff she has to offer. You won't be disappointed.

I'm signing off for now, so until next time, have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by. TTFN!

Hugs, Becky
