You're SO Yummy!

I took the day off today to take my cats and myself to doctor appointments.  I was done by noon - and even though it was a gorgeous fall day here - instead of taking a walk - I walked right up to my craft room and got stamping!

I have 2 beautiful grandnephews and 1 grandniece (3 yrs, 2 yrs and 1 yr) whom I love dearly (and have featured often here on the old blog!) -  I also love to create cards and projects using photos of them.

So - today is James' turn -  he's almost 2 1/2 now - and he recently went apple picking with his mum and dad. The parents always take lots of photos and share them on Snapfish so we get to see what they are up to!  I used a photo of him enjoying the pickings.
My design was inspired by this week's Cas(e) this Sketch and Cas-ual Friday's challenge - in stitches

We've got a long weekend coming up with Columbus Day on Monday -  and mine is EXTRA long having taken today off as well - whoo hoo!

I'm going to make myself get out there and walk this weekend - and also start pruning the garden for winter before it gets too cold!

I have a really fun fall template project posting on Tuesday (10/15) for the October new release by Creations by AR -  hope you can stop by then!

What a great idea to use a photo, I love it!! We went to the orchard a couple weeks ago and had enough for a ton of school snacks (they can only bring fruit for snack) and 4 pies. Heaven. Anyway, so glad to see you at CAS-ual Fridays!
