Whimsical Autumn & First Day of School Photos

Good morning!

Today's sneak peek was made with Carolyn King's Whimsical Autumn stamp set. Isn't that squirrel the cutest? The leaves, saying, and apple bushel basket are also some of the images in her set. I used my Copic Markers to color the squirrel and apple basket and then added crystal lacquer to the apples and part of the basket.

Since I used to be a teacher, and I received many apple things over the years, I decided to decorate my kitchen with apples. My kitchen colors are the ones shown above in my card - blues and reds, with a touch of green. I love the country colors like these - they feel like September and back to school to me!

Before I share the photos of my kids, I want to share the links for you to be able to check out all the other beautiful projects made with the Whimsical Autumn stamp set by Gina, Carolyn, Kurtis, Erika, Emily, and Melanie. It's a must have autumn stamp set for sure - at least in my opinion! LOL!

Speaking of back to school, I just had to share these photos of my kids on their first day of school on Tuesday. Check out my daughter's sweater and socks - apples! heehee... She saw them at a store a few weeks ago and fell in love with them. I did too - so it was an easy purchase to make - especially since they were on sale! She proudly wore her new outfit to school and took a big red apple for her 2nd grade teacher.

Of course, I can't leave my son out - he started 6th grade this year. Yikes how time flies by, doesn't it? He hasn't been feeling well the past few weeks, poor guy. So, he got to start school with a sinus infection and ear infection along with his allergies acting up something fierce. He has enjoyed getting back to school and his classmates, too. I ended up having to take him back to the doctor yesterday after school to get some new medicine to help clear up his ear infection. Hopefully this round of medicine will do the trick since last week's stuff didn't seem to touch it!

Thanks for stopping by and check back in tomorrow for the photos of the four All Occasion Stamp a Stack cards we'll be making at next Tuesday's SAS at GinaK Designs store in McFarland.
Have a wonderful rest of your day!
