Fall Blog Hop

I just love this button created by circle sister Gonescrappin -
I wish PC would do a Peanuts cartridge.

Welcome to the Fall Blog Hop with Circle Sisters!
You should be coming from the very talented 

Paper Memories. If you've just happened to come across my blog please check out each of these talented ladies blogs. You will want to start at Kristen's blog for the beginning 
of the hop.

Above is my craft for this hop

I had wanted to do something else- but I work for the American Red Cross in North Carolina so I guess you know what I have been up to this week.

I used the Thanksgiving cartridge from last year and cut the words in three different colors so I could cut apart the letters. I can not remember which cartridge I used for the sign background- but it was probably Lacy Labels or Storybook-I made two so that I could layer them back to back with some foam tape in between. It is a fun centerpiece or greeting in your front hall. The basket, leaves and flowers were from Micheal's last year on clearance- whole thing cost me about 4 bucks to make.

I have blog candy- just leave a comment (and a way to contact you) on this post by Sunday August 28 at 6pm and you will be entered to win a fabulous surprise.

Next stop on the hop is  Lavendergal.

Please be safe this weekend and if you are somewhere not affected by the hurricane- think about giving blood at your local blood center.
