first day--october afternoon style....

Today on the october afternoon blog they had a sketch challenge:
I've seen the challenges before but not done anything about it, so today I decided I would pull out my stash of october afternoon (I hoard the stuff--I REALLY do!)  And this is my take on the sketch, simple and clean, and yes there is some machine stitching.  I had to take this indoors as it's like 106 outside!  (yes, grateful for air conditioning today!)

just love how it came together quickly!  Also, the reason I chose the school theme?  Scrapfit had a challenge on their blog to do a layout that incorporated school items!  I just happened to have two little pictures and away the layout went--love when things come together so nicely!

So unmotivated to get out of the house because of the heat I decided to do a little Taebo with Billy Blanks--dang I'm sore--right where I want to be but still....beauty is pain--right?  That's what I tell my daughter when she watches me pluck my eyebrows.... :)

thanks for the visit, hope you are enjoying your day!
