Know what day it is?   Come on, come on, what day is it?  Why its SOUS DAY!!!  LoL.  I know not very original but gotta love it.   So its SOUS Friday and that means a new challenge.  This time we were asked to keep with in the season and create an Autumn arrangement.  A cluster of Autumn goodness.  for this i am sharing two projects.  one created with a previous paper doll i made a while back and then something fresh and new.   My cricut was used for each.  Paper dolls for the scarecrow,  corn husks and fence and Reminisce for the banner in my card and the wood panel cut. last but not least I pulled out my Thanksgiving cart for the wheat.  The sunflower was cut from the flower cart.

One Crafty Speller

*** POOF ***

Hello Blog Land !!  feels like its been forever!  No worries.. FALL is here and this by far is one of my favorite crafting seasons.  How about you?     Its a Happy SOUS Friday Challenge and I sure hope you participate in this one.  Do not forget to link up on the official SOUS Blog.    Can you guess what this challenge was about?   If you said Halloween... wrong!   Our queen crafty witch or is that goddess... Nanne' challenges us to come up with a project with the theme " Hocus Pocus "   so anything to do with magic!   I could have come up with something Disney, or some sort of magical moment with my family.  Instead I took a queue from my most amazing talent.. or lack there of.  " Spelling " !!!  LOL   I'm a scrapbooker you see, and my most favorite subject, a straight A his whole life now Sophomore in college studying to enter the medical field with a minor in foreign language.   So I hope I have painted the picture for you.  For you see, I'm the creative one, not the brains in the family... and he does not hesitate to point out my every misspelled word with in his albums.  So nothing could be more appropriate than this to adorn the door of my crafty space.   I think its important to take special note in the ' spelling ' portion of this sign.... for you see, I could not resist the opportunity to add this cute cuttlebug frog adorned with my Sizzix witches die hat to which his little rabbit ears poke through.   LOL !! thus emphasizing the 'magic' part of this theme and my inability to cast appropriate 'spells'. I also used my Cricut cartridge Happy Hauntings for the witch and frame.   Sizzix font strip for the message.   I just love how this turned out and hope you are inspired to run to your crafty caves and create create create !   

Happy Crafting my fellow spellbinders !!!   :)   Be sure to check out the Official SOUS BLOG for more amazing inspiration !   Until next time ** POOF **  :)
