thankful for you

It's Labor Day!

The kids are off from school and my husband doesn't have to work until tonight so we have some time to play.

It seems that everyday is so busy with running here and there so today it will be nice to have some time to spend together without the regular craziness.

This morning we are headed to the apple orchard in nearby Idalou. It's fun for the kids; I hope that the apples are in better shape than they were the last time we went- they don't spray for bugs so most of the apples had worms. It's still fun and I hope to get lots of new pics to scrap!

Here's a quick card that I made for Jillibean Soup. You will find this and lots more cute cards from other team members on the Jillibean blog today: http://jillibeansoup.typepad.com/


Fall is coming (I LOVED the cooler weather here yesterday and even wore a sweater to church!) and I am in the mood for the warm tones of autumn. This Apple Cheddar Soup collection from Jillibean Soup is so cute and so fun to scrap with. I sat down the other night and made two more cards from this collection. I like the fall colors with the pops of this cute blue. I even used my Big Shot and an apple embossing template- so fun! 

Have a wonderful day! I'll be back with some more projects from the crop I went to on Friday night.
