ROP Challenge ~ Autumn Photo Shoot

It's time to get out your Greeting Farm, Alota and
Magnolia stamps and head on over to Roses on Paper
for another great challenge.
Summer has a great range of these stamps available, with
some new Greeting Farm stamps just in stock.
Anki (designer of Anki's Sweethearts) is our talented
host this week with a challenge that was just too easy
for me - Autumn colours, well for all my international friends -
Fall colours - Orange, Brown and Warm Red.
Come and join in the fun, you could pick up one of the great
prizes that Summer has for each of our challenges.

For those of you that know me you'll know that Pink
Champagne is my favourite drink, the Beach is my favourite
place to be and Autumn is my most favourite time of the year.
If Christmas was in Autumn the years would be perfect.
I love the warm days, the cooler nights and the beautiful
changing colours of the leaves that are just superb for taking
photo's, which is generally what I'm doing on those magical

Since our combination challenge a couple of months
ago I've really taken a liking to combining my projects.
My design layout for my card this week came from the
great sketch at Friday Sketches.
The have some very talented crafts people over there
providing some great sketches and this is just another
example of the fun layouts.

I was waiting for the right card for this awesome
camera stamp and when I saw this weeks sketch I knew
it was time to ink my stamp. Tilda just looks so cute
posing for the camera in amongst the Autumn leaves.

Everytime I use this paper I have to smile - it is my all
time favourite paper, and with very good reason - a few
years ago I was working on a scrapbook page for some
Autumn photo's I had taken of my girls - I knew how I
wanted my page to look and what paper I wanted, but
do you think I could find it anywhere.
I went to every craft store I could get to, phoned them,
and googled them and then eventually after months of
searching and having given up hope I was on Ebay for
something else and found a lady in America selling the
paper that I had designed in my head!!!!! - only problem
she wasn't shipping to Australia - that was until I begged
and pleaded and offered to buy all ten packets that she
was selling!!!!
She gave in and 5 years later - I'm still stocked up on this
paper and Tina is one of my great friends - and I always
tell her she was my best purchase ever on Ebay!!!!!
And so that is why I smile whenever using this paper.
