Whiff of Joy *45* and GDT call......

This week's challenge over at the Whiff of Joy challenge blog is bling! This is perfect as I just got some nice orange half pearls from Micheals that go fabulous with the WOJ fall kit. I have also entered my card in for the WOJ Guest DT! (My fingers and toes are crossed this time!! LOL) This call is open until the 19th of September and is for the months of October and November with the end of September being the half month! I just adore all the images from the fall kit and this one is just adorable with the baby turkey! I have masked Willow and stamped some wheat at her feet. All the kraft paper again is outlined with crackle paint ~ just love the contrast!

Paper ~ Papertrey Ink
Inks: Distress Inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories: Raffia lace ~ Paper Cellar, rose ~ Prima, half-pearls ~ Micheal's, button and twine ~ stash

Well this morning my girls head off to school!! I must admit it is bittersweet!! It will be nice for them to be away from me for a little while everyday (for them and me) but I really feel sad that I won't see them all day!! I am sure the days will fly by anyway!!
Well thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!! I always appreciate your comments!
I hope you all have a fabulous day wherever you are!!
