Ready for Autumn!!!


Autumn is almost here!!!  In my book, it can't be here fast enough!!! 
It's September 5th and we still have 100 degree temperatures daily here in Texas!!!  Ugh!!  As you saw back in August, I was with my daughter in Bellingham, Washington for orientation.  You could definitely tell the season was beginning to change there.  The days were in the mid 70's and the evenings were in the low 60's.  PERFECT!!!
 
This week I have a card I'm entering in two challenges that inspire the Autumn theme.  The first is the Paper Players and the second is our
fabulous Pals Paper Arts.












The card below was inspired by two people,  Ann Schach and Becky Garcia!!  I saw a similar card that was done by Becky using "Walk in the Wild" while I was at Convention 2013. Gorgeous!!   The leaves were inspired by my up-line Ann on this very challenge with the Paper Players!!  Wow!!!  I mean WOW!!!  Autumn is absolutely my favorite time of year!!  When I saw her card, I was immediately ready for cool evenings, a fire in the fire place and Pumkin Spice Lattes!!!  Heaven!!!  Anyway, here's the card below.



This week's "Just A Thought"......

"The secret of
change is to focus
all of your energy,
not on fighting the
old, but on building 
the new."
 - Socrates

These words are so profound.  The only thing we are all guaranteed in life is change.  We know it, we expect, sometimes we even want it, but when it happens we question it.  Whether it's your child going off to college, the change in the season or the loss of a friend or family.  We must embrace it, accept it and shape ourselves with it.  Grow and let the change become part of you, rather than resist the process.  I know this is easier said than done, but we should strive to use this opportunity to grow and be better than what we were yesterday.
