Ah, Fall Break

I slept until 9 o'clock this morning. I had forgotten how good that feels. I now feel ready to tackle some of the chores that have piled up around here with me being gone so much the last couple of weeks.
.
Even last weekend was crazy busy but in a very good way. The girls both had soccer tournaments and were scheduled to play three games each with DH coaching both teams. Both teams won all their games. L and I ended up leaving one game early so she could get ready for her first gymnastics meet of the season. She did fabulous and has actually already qualified for state. She got two 4th place medals in vault and floor, a 5th on beam and 6th in all around. Sunday K had her first swim meet of the season. She had a fabulous meet too. She placed a second in 100 breast, third in 50 free, fourth in 200 free, and fifth 50 breast. She dropped time in every event including almost 21 seconds off her 200 free!
.
I have two projects I created for Emma's Paperie that I want to share with you today. The first was created using a sketch by the fabulous Anabelle O'Malley. You can find the sketch along with the other designer's take on the Emma's blog. All supplies are from Emma's except for the little spider. I used a small purple pom pom and gave him googly eyes.

.
This second project was for the color challange at Emma's. Loved these fall gorgeous fall colors. You can find the inspiration photo at Emma's as well.

Off to take the girls to the dentist and get some food for my poor family. Have a wonderful Halloween weekend and stay safe!
