Manic Monday!

Well it's Monday! For me Monday is the middle of my work week so it tends to drag. Actually lately all my work days drag. I thought maybe I would start this week off with a challenge and a chance to win some blog candy... Are you up for it??

I want to know if there is there anything that really inspires you in your paper crafting? Right now the changing leaves are really inspiring me to use reds, oranges, yellows, and browns. Typical fall colors huh? I know I am always a bit inspired by the seasons and weather around me. In Michigan Fall is so pretty to me. I love the smells of fall too. I can't wait to take a trip to the cider mill and get some fresh cider and donuts (even though I'm watching my diet), and a pumpkin to carve. In my mind I know it's truly fall when Starbucks gets Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Even though this year I am fighting the urge to have one. How about you?

Since Fall has been so inspirational to me, here's the challenge - I want to see your Fall Creations. Anything fall related will do. Cards, treat bags, altered projects, scrapbook pages ... anything. I'll post my creation on Saturday so we have a week to work on them.

This week I am also challenging myself to post every day. Wish me luck:) And make sure you check in to see what's going on, I feel a lot of challenges are heading your way.

Happy Crafting & Happy Fall!

I think the holidays really inspire me. I love to see all the new papers and embellishments that are out for Christmas and Halloween. Another source of inspiration are my blog subscriptions. I'm jumping in and will create a card for you this week.

WOW! I was shocked to see this post this morning! LOL! Love that Fall photo. I'm sure I can whip up a Fall card sometime today. I'm so excited you are trying to do a post everyday this week, eager to see what challenges you have in store too! Hope I can play along!
ETA: Here's my Fall card!

This is a very pretty Fall photo!! Love the reflection of the trees in the water. Hope it's okay if my project is one that I already made last week or so. I don't see much time in my immediate future for making anything new. Here is a card I just made recently though:
