Papertrey Ink Blog Hop 8/25/12

The Inspiration:





What I came up with:




This month Nicole challenged us to get into the fall spirit and while fall is my very favorite time of year I just wasn't ready to think warm and fuzzy flannels and turtlenecks!  I am still in the summer mood, which here in the Pacific Northwest doesn't last long.  So I struggled a little with this one but I think this card turned out alright.  This is my first card of this size, 5.5 x 5.5.  I like the room you have to play with on this size but I need to keep playing with it so that it becomes more comfortable for me. 


Thank you for stopping by and please check out all the other talented peeps on the blog hop right here!
