Fall-To Layout #137

When looking for new recipes to try, I've been going to Tastespotting recently. For example, today. I wanted something sweet. I had my eye on a lemon poppy seed recipe, but because of the rainy weather, I didn't really feel like going outside to do some grocery shopping. Instead I went on Tastespotting, and when I was browsing, I saw a recipe for chocolate chip sour cream muffins. I never thought to put sour cream in muffins, but the reviews were positive and I actually had some leftover sour cream in the refridgerator that I didn't really know what to do with but also didn't want it to go to waste. This recipe was a great solution, and the muffins turned out great! I think it's the sour cream that made them so moist. Yum!

Have you seen the new Simon's Cat video? So cute and funny!

I went to my uncle's house for dinner tonight, and it was sad to not have Petty there :(

For Fall-To Layout #137, I knew exactly which embellishments I wanted to use. My sister had given me some cherry blossom stickers, and I wanted to use them for a card that I'm sending to my friend for her upcoming birthday. Purple is also her favorite color, which worked out fine because it jives with the pink blossoms. The purple patterned paper was added on at the last minute because I thought there was too much plain cardstock...the black, pale blue, and purple. I think it balances the visual interest.
