Signs of Fall layout-PPPR reveal

It's that day today.. 
My day to share a layout I created using some the cute cutting files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon store..
For some of us, its the season of Autumn and with that comes cold rainy weather right?..LOL
I decided to use some of the Rainy Days Critters cutting file and created a fun autumn themed layout which will have a photo of my pups on there since be it rain, sleet or snow, they have to be walked at least twice a day..LOL

here is what I created:

and yes, I noticed I'm missing the little U in rubber..LOL
I just dont' have the heart to waste a big piece of cardstock cutting out a new one when I know its on my desk some where..LOL
I will find it...

how about a few close ups:

The tree is the 0.99 cent cutting file:
The title is a phrase I created with some free fonts I have in my stash..

This cute little guy is in the "Rainy day critters" cutting file and the leaves are in the "Falling leaves" cutting file.

The frog is also in the "Rainy day critters" cutting file.
The cloud and rain drops are both in the "Rain or Shine" cutting file.

The rubber boots are also in the "Rain or Shine" cutting file and the large background marquee is in the "layered labels 1" cutting file.

and there ya have my post for today..

Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

.I've been working so many holiday projects, be it Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas, that I felt like I needed to do something a little different.

Here is what I created for this linky party...

I am a Huuuuuuge "Game of Thrones!" fan.. 
I've watched every episode of every season and now my son and I are reading the books.. So, I needed a book marker :) 
 In the beginning of the book, I love the story of the Old Wise tree that is white with red leaves, plus I had to add the shield, crown and sword since its all based on mid-evil fictitious history :)

I added the stamp to the shield " Always and Forever!" since its how I feel about my love for these books :)  
I also though to write in white gel pen "Winter is coming!" (from the book) but it did not turn out as I had visioned it :)  Grrrrr

My pretty white tree.. 
I did a print and cut around edge with this one, adding a white edge (in the SIL software) to the red leaves giving them a great look and of course had to add some Bling, whats a crown if it doesn't have bling right?

Here is the stamp I used:
You can buy this stamp set HERE

Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!
Thanks for stopping by today..

Happy Scrappin ya'll :)

Fall is in the Air- Project life-DC reveal SOUS

Happy Friday fellow scrapper and lifers..
Us girls over at SOUS are having our die cut reveal today and I decided to create a Project Life page since were asked to use "Fall Colors!" on our project..
I used some We R Memory Keepers papers, plus some fun die cuts that I found in the SIL store
Here is what I created and I do apologize for the glare, but those plastic sleeves are a pain to try to photograph.. :)

How about some close ups without the glare:

 Will be adding the dates etc, plus some journaling to this card.

the photo will tuck nicely behind everything..

I walk my dogs almost daily, I get a little help from my son and hubby..
but I always take photos of them, during the changing of the seasons and well, as soon as I get some of this fall's photos printer, I'll be adding them to this Project life page with some journaling..

I used a flower punch by Fiskars and a leaf punch by Martha Stewart, but other than that, they are all die cuts, unless they are sentiment strips which came with the paper pack..

and there ya have it.. a quick post for today :)
the back of my necks been killing me lately sitting at my computer all the time..LOL
Do stop by SOUS and check out what fun projects our design team has created for todays reveal..
Till Next time..

From our home to yours- Card

Hi fellow stampers..
I'm here today to share a card I created as my design team project for Craftin Desert Divas, using the "From our home to yours!" sentiment from the Simply Christmas sentiment set.

Here is my card:

it measures 6x6 and I added lots of layers :)

side view..
 I decided not to glue the snowflakes down on the banner, but let them hang around, added some white liquid pearls to the centers of all the snowflakes and around the edges of all of the snow..

how about a few close ups:
I stamped the sentiment right onto the back of the card, then using my white gel pen to add a little detail around it..

Here is the stamp set I used:

and you can buy it HERE

and there you have my project for today..
thanks for stopping by
