The Great Outdoors..

...is the challenge over at CCT this week!! I cannot believe it is challenge #17!! I went with a new stamp from Sarah Kay!! I am just loving these stamps. I am so mad because I stamped the sentiment evenly with the fold down flap and only after I stamped did I realize the flap was not folded at a perfect 90 degree angle so now the sentiment is crooked!! (UGH)

Paper: K & Co
Ink: Black Staz-on, distressed inks and Derwent watercolor pencils
Accessories: Ribbon from Micheals (probably sick of it but it is the only "shabby" ribbon I could find and the kids get antsy after 10 minutes! Brads ~ ctmh, pearl brad ~ Micheals.


It really is a good thing that Micheals is walking distance from my house!! The girls and I walk down there and then they are a little tired from walking so they aren't running all over the place in the store because they are bored!! (BONUS) Also they have set up their Halloween (I know!!) decorations and I tell them they have to behave then I will take them to see the decorations. Works like a charm!! What a bad mom ~ hey when they are with me 24/7 I have to do what I have to do!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!!!
