Today has been one of those busy, catch up days! You know those days where no matter what you get done it feels like you have a million more to do? A few people asked about the dp I used on my photo album in the last entry. It was from a paper pad I bought made by the domestic goddess herself, Martha Stewart. It's called Botanical Classics and I bought it at WalMart! We don't have WalMart in SF, so when I went with my mom last time I was visiting home, I was shocked at how big there craft section is! They've got great stuff, will definitely be checking back there when I get a chance. I bought this pad thinking its the exact colors for my cousins wedding and would be perfect for a card for her and her fiance, but I think I've used it for every project I've done lately. Can't seem to get enough of it! :-) I even used a little in this card I made for my parents. Danielle made the greatest sketch over at Paper Pretties and I finally got to use it. I will definitely be using it again!



This Sophia image is one of my favorites. Sometimes a drawing can be really hard and frustrating. You have to keep reworking it to get the mood and feeling across that you're trying to portray. And sometimes it's like it just flows out of the pencil. This image was definitely one of those. It must be because of my love for fall:-) Hope you all are having a fabulous day, and thanks for stopping by!
