Fall-To Layout 101

Yay, TGIF! Wow, what a week it's been! I wonder if it went by faster because of all the blackout drama at the beginning of the week. In any event, today was a good day.

Sleep in (check)
Attend spin class (check)
Clean bathroom (check)
Eat pad thai for lunch (check)
Take afternoon nap (check)
Make origami panda cards with various sentiments (check...cranked out 18 of them today)
Watch several episodes of NCIS while making cards (check check)
Do laundry (Ummm...yeah. I'll get on that tomorrow)

While I was scarfing down my pad thai, I watched a bunch of videos from TwoPeas's YouTube channel where they preview a bunch of new products seen at CHA Summer 2010. I know that come fall/winter, I'm going to have to exert some self control. More than usual. Why? Well, because so much cool stuff will be coming out! I'm most excited for the American Crafts and Basic Grey goodies. They should have enabler alerts accompanying those videos. They are dangerous to your pocketbook!

Here's my take on clean&simple's Fall-To Layout #101. I was inspired by the kites that I saw in American Crafts' collection called City Park, so I did some paper piecing to create my own kite. I was so happy to find that I still had some cloud paper to accompany the kite.
