I'm sorry I took a much longer break than anticipated. Miss Ellie received her four month shots Tuesday and she was a wreck that day and the next. As such, I was unable to get in the studio. :o( I'm pleased to say Ellie is doing better, and I had some play time last night. :o)
As the temperatures here continue to hover in the upper-80's to 90's, I'm insanely jealous of those with more seasonal temps. The kiddies are back in school, that means the days should be cooler with a crispness that I'm just not getting here. Williamsburg is a lovely lovely place to live, there are so many activities and so much history, but it lacks a proper autumn. As that is my favorite season, it makes it tough this time of year. Now Blacksburg has an autumn to be envious of. :sigh:
All this to say, I was trying to decide what I wanted to make to submit to the Paper Players Challenge this week (Clean and Simple--my style to a "T"), felt my longing for fall, and picked up "Branch Out". It all came together from there.
Since maples are my favorite tree (only because I don't live out west with the gorgeous, majestic aspen), and I LOVE their vibrant fall foliage, I decided that was what I was going to create. :o)
And, of course, I can't leave out the inside. :o)
This card uses:

We have highs projected to be lower-80's and upper 70's for this weekend. Maybe fall is on its way?
