Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I did.  It was over too quickly, but pretty nice.  Except the news that my friend's dog bit my son.  But the dog didn't break the skin, thank God for blue jeans.  He's sore and bruised and the dog is in a lot of hot water by her owner.  Other than that, the weekend was good. I'm also on my last week of my current job and I get to move to my new one.  I am thrilled!

So this week's challenge is up for Paper Pretties and we're playing with Fall Inspiration again.  What a fun challenge and I had a lot of fun playing with ARTish's newest image, Linden.

I found a great sketch on PCP and some awesome paper in my stash.  His swirl of leaves was perfect for one of elements on the sketch.  Although Linden does come with some perfect sentiments, I ended up using a stamp from another company,  I was getting tired of printing the sentiment over and over again only to ruin it when trying to cut it from the Die-namics dies I wanted to use.

I hope to see you over at Paper Pretties this week.  Enjoy your Monday.

That's quite the bite to bruise through blue jeans like that :( Piecing together what happened after the fact is a daunting task, too. Yikes! I'm glad he's going to be OK.
Super cute image - I love how you've got the swirl coming 'out of the box'!
