Fall-To Layout 105

Funny things said at work today...
  • Co-worker walks by, pauses, and backtracks. "Tina, are you still talking about food? Do you talk about anything else?" Ummm. Well, it IS a frequent topic of mine and it just to happened that I WAS talking about food. I was having a conversation with another co-worker about vegan food (his wife is borderline vegan, and I was curious).
  • Another co-worker was trying to convince me to jump into the home ownership pool, even though I have previously expressed my hesitation. "I'd love the independence. I can walk around butt naked if I wanted to..." I suppose the freedom to do that is nice, but I don't think it should be the #1 reason to buy a place.
Today was a great food day at work. Because it's the last Friday of the month, we get complimentary breakfast sponsored by one of the departments. This month, the Accounting department decided to get breakfast from Panera. Bagels and scones, yum! Then because it was the last day for one of my coworkers, her department bought cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes. I had a red velvet one, just like last time.

In true Friday fashion, I tackled clean&simple's Fall-To Layout (#105). I don't think I followed the sketch exactly since the sentiment was supposed to overlap the images on the lower left corner, but at least the elements are where they should be. The rhinestones were added to give the card some dimension. I decided to test out a white gel pen that I bought last weekend, and I liked the card a lot more after I added the faux stitching.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan, Deep Green, Warm Red
Stamp: Studio G (sentiment), SEI- Winter Song (deer, trees)
White Gel Pen: Inkssentials
Punch: Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch
