Fall-To Layout #146

Kitty update: I think she's gotten over the trauma of going to the vet yesterday as evidenced by her appetite comeback and sleeping upstairs instead of a dark corner in the basement. Crisis averted.

I stopped by a few few yard sales in the area this morning on the way to spin class. I didn't find anything worth buying, so I ended up at the gym 30 minutes early. I saw one of my gym buddies who had a baby about 6 months ago. The baby was adorable (chubby chubby cheeks) and had grown so much since the last time I saw her. Awww.

The rest of my day was spent doing house stuff (scrubbing down the bathroom and doing laundry) and then making origami dress cards for my craft show inventory. Even though craft show season is months away, I don't want to be panicking and thinking that I don't have enough cards or enough variety to sell. I'm really liking the sentiment stamps that I bought last week. I like the look they give in comparison to just printing sentiments on cardstock using my printer. I also caught up on some Paperclipping Roundtable episodes while I was being crafty.

Confession: I totally annihilated the pint of ice cream I bought yesterday. Ben and Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. Please don't judge me. ::hangs head:: However, it was totally freakin' stickin' worth it.

Here's my take on this week's Fall-To Layout (#146). I started out with a kraft piece of cardstock that I already had laying around. Then I used a border paper punch on some strips of white cardstock that were leftover from this afternoon's card making session. I knew I wanted to using my new birthday stamp, and I thought it'd be nicely paired with some music know like the "happy birthday" song and all that jazz. Pearls were added on for an elegant finishing touch. Ta da!
