Family Time

Good morning to you! I wanted to share a LO of my family apple picking a few weeks ago. It is one of those traditions that I so enjoy. I will be so sad when they tell me they no longer want to go! I used Noel Mignon's Mill Street kit. (sold out!) I love the bits of blue mixed with the traditional fall colors. It really makes the other colors pop! I created my own embellishments with my circle and scallop punches.
For the title I wanted to layer the letters, so I added pop dots underneath every other letter. I love the dimension it gives!


And on a more serious note......a letter came home from Cort's school informing us that another student has died. (H1N1). How awful for this family.....I can't even imagine the pain of losing a child. I am nervous about my girl getting this......and trying to locate a vaccine has not been an easy task. They are offered in the city.....I live in the suburbs. So I will be making more phone calls today....hoping somewhere...someone...is offering the vaccines!

Love the LO! the detail of the title is a great idea.
Here in Argentina the H1N1 was terrible this winter, lots of people died, but mostly people who had previous diseases. It really is scary.
