PDCC #151 and Unscripted Sketches #177

Happy End-of-the-Week!

For us, Fall Break is only days away and that means a beach vacation is practically here. Everyone is "happy, happy, happy." These days, leaving the state on a pre-booked getaway is the only way we can see Big Daddy. The Husband is working a ridiculous amount of hours and we are all looking forward to a getaway and some well deserved "play time."

Beautiful colors over at the Play Date Cafe and I put them with the sketch from Unscripted Sketches because I seem to be all about sketches lately. I don't want to turn one down if I can make the time to do it. (Sometimes I'm making time, when I probably should be doing something else! But please keep that between us.)

Aren't they both fabulous? I just want to jump into each of the pictures on the color scheme! (I love fall. Have I mentioned that before?)

My CTMH colors are Vineyard Berry (stamped chicken wire and flower), Olive (patterned paper from Mayberry kit, twine, stamped sentiment and leaves), and Goldrush (cardstock). The kraft cardstock is from PaperTrey Ink as is the chicken wire stamp set (Background Basics: Farm & Barn). The sentiment is from Skipping Stones Design (Heartsong 2) and the flower and leaves are from CTMH (Flirty Scrapbooking Kit stamp set). The cute little matching rhinestones are from Michaels.
Thanks for visiting!
