Chickaniddy Crafts: Happy Fall

Post 2 of 2 for me HERE for my So Thankful for You post.

Hello & Happy Saturday!

I'm up on the Chickaniddy Crafts Blog today with a Fall Inspired card!

Here's a peek:

It's a card that I made especially for my girl!  She's living on her own {with 2 roomies!} and starting her 2nd year at the University.  I'm sending it to her along with some goodies!

Here's a card that I made for my boy:

My boy is in his final year of high school.  Sigh, time flies.  

Yes, I do still love the Chalkboard technique.  Isn't the Scrumptious Collection, well, scrumptious?  New in the collection is Die Cut Tags.  The "You Shine" is from that package.  Super fun, eh?

The Fun Times tag is from a sheet of 12x12 called Home Sweet Home.  The tag and the Fun Times are actually separate pieces that I put together.

The brads...yes, those are matte brads, LOVE them to bits!

His Senior Year is filled with tons of homework and activities, definitely a busy guy!  In our household we're Journal-a-holics.  So, when I saw those Eames Journals at the Nordstrom Rack, I had to get one for each of the kids.

There you go...remember to pop over to the Chickaniddy Crafts blog to see the full reveal of my Happy Fall card!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
