A happy Monday to YOU...

Monday, October 1, 2012

Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was another whirlwind, but it was great!   Friday night was high school football homecoming and a chance for the band to get a run through for their performance the next was picture perfect football weather!  The next day, which was another gorgeous day, I got goose bumps (NOT from the weather!) watching the band (and my oldest, Caleb) perform about an hour from home.  Jilli had a little sleepover that night, Caleb got to go to a small outdoor party with friends, and Jonah's treat was keeping Daddy's spot in bed warm that night, as hubby was working out of town.  Couldn't have asked for a better weekend, but I'm thankful for a quiet Monday with some time to create!  And, hey...a new challenge has gone up at The Creative Paper Trade...

Yes, it's time for "Color My Week"!

And here's the pretty freebie image from Andrea that you may use to create with if you'd like...

Isn't that lovely?!?

I finished up a creation that I'll save for Wednesday, when we'll introduce our "Paper Nudge" challenge.  This time around, it's a SKETCH!!  I've combined the sketch challenge with the pretty "Color My Week"'s a peek...

If you would like to visit the blog, you'll find some lovely inspiration waiting for you there.  (And you can even get a peek at the sketch for Wednesday's challenge, and the shape for Friday's "Tip Top Shape" challenge!)  Remember, the challenges will run for two weeks.  And look what's up for grabs for the lucky randomly drawn challenge entry...

...the stamp set, ribbon and pretty handmade embellishments!  I'd like to win that one myself!!!
Hope you can join us!
See you Wednesday!!
