A spoonful of Sugar #24....

...is a great sketch by Trina. I found some of this pretty paper while shopping for hubby's jeans. Well, I had to take a break!! (LOL) He is so picky and now I have to take back the jeans I got because he doesn't like them. Normally I would be mad but the Scrapbook store is in the same plaza and I don't get to go there often! I really love this image! She just looks so content!

Paper: Sassafras lass ~ the edges were scalloped that way! I thought that was so cool! CS ~ Bazzill
Stamps: Willow ~ WOJ, ticket stamp ~ Autumn leaves, aged spots and flowers ~ Stempelglede, "Marshmallows" and snowflakes ~ Studio G
Inks: distressed inks of course!
Accessories: Mini pearls ~ Kaiser Crafts, scrolled edges ~ cuttlebug, buttons ~ stash, ribbon ~ Melissa Frances.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I will leave you with a picture of what I have been doing the past week!!
The kids usually drive me crazy while I am raking the leaves but the dog was messing them up more than the kids!!!We tried everything to get him out of the pile. We would throw his ball and he would fetch it and bring it right back to the leaves!!! Well I guess since he just turned 1 he may still have a little puppy antics in him. (LOL)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a fabulous day!!!

Love the card Kathy, I love that Willow stamp too, she does look so relaxed. As for taking those jeans back - are you sure you didn't accidently on purpose get him a pair he didn't like ;) LOL!!

Love the colours of those leaves (but not enough to have to rake it all up, rather you than me!) Have a lovely evening. x

Kathy this is gorgeous!
I really love this card, your image is coloured so beautifully and your papers just fabulous.
Love your pics our goldies are too old for that now but they would have been right in the middle of the naughtiness.

You could keep your cunning plan going and keep getting the wrong jeans, so you can keep returning to the craft shop, do you think he might become suspicious though.

your puppy is so handsome.
good luck with the leaves...looks like a daunting task..especially in the size of garden that you have...
I'm only jealous, as our garden is like a postage stamp...
