Last Days of Summer..........PPA216





We are off on a road trip to the Outer Banks and when we return my world here will probably look like the colors on this card. The leaves seem to change colors in a heartbeat.  But in the meantime I will enjoy summer weather in North Carolina.  Our whole family is going which should be an event in itself!  It has been a long time since I have traveled with a toddler but it looks like she is the first one ready to go.....







                              Pals Paper Arts has a terrific sketch for us this week!  I used images from Work of Art and the new set For All Things along with a wonderful new DSP called Colors of Autumn.

Love your Fall card, Linda! The "messy" twine adds a fun touch. I hope you have a wonderful vacation!

Linda,
Beautiful card- fall is beautiful but then comes the cold...sometimes for too long. Your card was a pleasant treat this morning. I love the colors and the twine embellishment. I can see it in other colors, too. Enjoy the vacation with the family. I see Emma is ready to go! PS...love that profile pic!

I have to wait a long time for fall to get here! I love the trunk photo. I remember my kids loved when my sister would let them climb into her trunk and knock until she opened it. It was a novelty because we had station wagons or SUVs with no trunk! Thanks for sharing the fall theme, Linda!

Simply stunning, Linda! The colors, the addition of the fibers, and the perfectly placed stamp from Work of Art to highlight the foliage.
