Leaf Card

I made this awesome leaf using Allison's add on sketch from Sketch Support this week.  Once I made it, I decided it just needed a simple framed background to make a fall card.

Products used - Patterned papers: My Mind's Eye (yellow/cream, stripes), SEI (green dot), DCWV (brown squares), ;  Leaf pattern:  Rebecca

Trailer Feast

While in Austin with my mom, we stopped by the Gypsy Picnic, a trailer food festival.  We joined up with my friends Chris and Jennifer for a lunchtime feast.  I had been to the Oakland version, Eat Real, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  This one was equally as great and cheaper.  ;)  I had the most ridiculous dessert donut (with icing and peach jam), crispy thai chicken, a fried pierogi, a chicken doner kebab, a gourmet hot dog, and a strawberry basil smoothie.  Yum, yum, yum!!

Products used - Patterned papers: KaiserCraft (forks), Making Memories (dots), pink paislee (grid), lily bee design (yellow/blue), My Mind's Eye (yellow/cream), Bazzill Swiss dot;  Journaling block:  KaiserCraft;  Accents: KaiserCraft (lemons), October Afternoon (date) ; Letters: American Crafts Thickers;  Sketch:  Sketch Support

This layout was designed based on the November two page sketch over at Sketch Support.  Please visit their site to see more fabulous takes on the sketch and to print if for yourself!
