Officially Fall.....

OK.....I believe the 23rd marks the first day of fall......too bad it is 90 degrees here and super sticky outside! But to honor this change of seasons.....I have a fall banner to share with you! I combined two of my favorite companies.....Noel Mignon's kits and Provo Craft to create the letters! I used Noel's Office Party kit (sold out) and PC's Storybook Cartridge to cut the letters. I did lots of Glimmer Misting, inking, and sewing!
I love the layered look of these letters.......this is truly my favorite font!


This lil' lovely is hanging on my fireplace........
Be sure to check out Noel Mignon's latest Halloween kit, "Sleepy Hallow!" A jam packed kit full of fun Halloween tidbits!!!
****************************************************
My Dad and I, and the family had dinner the other night and told me he misses visiting my blog for stories about the kids and such. Lately, he tells me it's all "business." So here is a tidbit about my weekend coming up.....nothing too exciting....but here it goes! Saturday, Cortney is singing in her special needs choir at her school in the morning. It is fun to watch the kids get so enthusiastic! My girl has been practicing singing her version of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame," all week. Which if you remember from last year......is a "Christian" song! LOL! (She attends a Christian school and that's what Cort told me last year......; ) Afterwards we are heading to Indiana for some apple picking. Now mind you.....I am not a baker. At all. Every year we vow to make apple pie. This will be our 6th year. No apple pies have been made. Yet. This year will be different! My husband has printed out recipes for apple pie. We've been talking about apple pie, dreaming about apple pie........my son tells me he will be 80 when we actually make apple pie. 13 year olds are so cute. Well now we have to prove him wrong! I'll take pics.........maybe.
Have a great weekend! And as always........thanks for stopping!

Michele Gross said...

Oh My! This is absolutely STUNNING!! You really outdid yourself with the gorgeousness!! :)
I used to love to bake but sadly living at altitude now in CO makes it so much of a challenge that I don't enjoy it anymore :( However! Apple pie is easy peasy especially if you give yourself a slight cheaters advantage by using storebought pie crust ;) Step 1-buy it from your local grocery store. Step 2- follow directions to defrost if necessary Step 3-make a fabulous pie with fuss free crust!
Ta-da!!
(make sure you throw a little flour around just to make it look like you tried! ;)
Hugs!!

Love your banner Michele! I just got the Storybook cartridge and now I can't wait to try it out. The doilies give it an extra special look! Wish I lived closer to Utah and could attend the swarm...it sounds amazing!
Have a great weekend. We have 90-degrees here today, too, and then tomorrow a high of 68-go figure. Apple pie was bought this morning by me at our local farm market..yum!

I love your banner!!! I have been trying to get my thoughts on how to do it for ages...maybe this year! :o)
Hope all goes well with the concert! I love going to hear kids choirs and musical shows!
Use frozen pie crust for your pies, just don't tell! :o) I use the ones in pans for the bottom crust and the Pillsbury ones in the refrigerated section for the top! They are all rolled out flat and just need to be trimmed! Shhh...I won't tell if you don't!
Oh, and BTW, they gobbled the apple pies up!
Thanks for sharing! :o)
