MyGrafico Challenge Monday

Good Morning,

This has to be a super quick post because Levi is to get his cast today, so we'll be off to the Orthopedic Specialist later this morning.

Today is the day where I share with you what I made for the MyGrafico Challenge blog. It's really beginning to feel like Fall here. The last few days have been overcast and drizzly but yesterday was really gorgeous but windy. I'm worried what that wind might blow in. Haha!

The MyGrafico challenge this week is all about Fall and it's a recipe challenge. 1-digi, 2 designer papers and 3 embellishments. I used an image from this set you can find here. I hope that you join us! Be sure to visit the the MyGrafico Challenge Blog for all the details. Oh! And you might want to keep tabs on the blog because some changes are coming that you are going to LOVE! Also, visit the design team's blogs to see all the lovely creations they have to share with you. They are all linked in my sidebar.

1-Digi: This is from the Autumn Elements stamp set (linked above). The sentiment is from CC Designs Autumn Kit. Love it! I punched out some leaves and attached with a brad and then added some ribbon around the first piece of decorative paper that I did a haphazard fan fold and attached with staples (3 embellishments).

This is the inside view where I featured the other piece of decorative paper along with a wonderful quote from President John F. Kennedy.

Thanks for stopping by. I'll see you tomorrow!
