i scrapped this layout for a color challenge over on sistv. i never realized that you can put this widget into your blog and view the layouts!  very cool! 

with yesterday being the first day of autumn, i chose the fall color swatch for this challenge. 

the picture is actually a postcard that i got at our church garage sale. 

on this layout, i also tried using my sewing machine to stitch on paper.  a long time ago, i owned a mini sewing machine specifically for paper, and it was awful.  i hated using it.  so, i’ve been nervous about trying my regular machine.  but, i think you will see stitching on a lot more of my layouts! it was a lot of fun! 

i also tried another fun & easy technique that i saw in a magazine recently.  the chipboard arrow was a dingy color of brown, so i wrapped it with bright yellow thread to add more color and texture!  too easy!! 

all of this was stuff i had on hand.  i’ve been trying to use more of my stash…. 

i hope you are enjoying the first bits of fall. 

the women’s Bible study that i attend started today.  it was so good to see some faces that i haven’t seen since spring.  very excited to study God’s Word with these ladies!
