Can't Thank You Enough

This past weekend I had a workshop in Blacksburg. We made several great cards and crafts! I broke out the November Paper Pumpkin, we made Christmas Cards, and a Thank You Card.


I found the idea for this card online (Stuck on Stampin'). I loved her card and the colors but the colors and paper she used are no longer available with Stampin' Up. So I had to reconfigure the colors. I looked in the catalog at the Designer Series Paper and picked which one I liked the most. I went with Confetti Celebration because I loved the colors and patters! Next I looked at the colors listed for the paper pack and decided which ones to use for the other parts of the card.

I used:
  • Tangelo Twist for the card base
  • Bermuda Bay for one of the banners and the ribbon
  • Basic Gray for one layer
  • Whisper White for the tag and banner
  • Tangerine Tango for the stamped images
I love the color combinations and so did everyone at the workshop!

Here are some of the products used in this project:

Family Fun - Cleek Farms Corn Maze


We had a great time visiting a local Farm for some fall fun. Cleek Farms offers a corn maze, bounce pillow, cow train, hay/wagon ride, and lots of activities for kids! We ate lunch there, they have a BBQ vendor and the food was great. Adeline had so much fun she didn't want to leave but it was getting busy and we had been there awhile! This was a super easy farm to get to and not that far from us in Bristol, VA.

First stop was the Bounce Pillow! Adeline spied this before we even got through the gates. Thankfully she was easily swayed to go see other things. Unfortunately she played on it again right before we left and wasn't too happy to be leaving! There were just too many big kids and she couldn't even stand up at that point.


Next we spied an awesome play set - a Tractor and Hay Wagon made out of wood!


Needless to say, she loved it! She'll be talking to the granddads about her Christmas list now!


Up on the hill behind the play set was a huge sandbox, horse tire swings, corn box, and a water faucet race.






















Next we were off to the cow train! Adeline did not like it, she said it was "too bumpy!". She rode it last year, but she was in my lap. So I guess I was the cushion.


Then we got in line for the Hay Ride! Which for us was more like a wagon ride since ours didn't have hay, just benches. I am not complaining, I'm allergic to hay! Adeline was so happy to spend the day with her daddy.


Hard to get good shots on the hay ride since I was behind Adeline and Alan. Oh well. Adeline said Paw-Paws tractor is better, and it's Blue!


After the hay ride we played a bit around the farm. We decided the corn maze with a toddler wasn't so good, so we skipped it.



We did get a chance to get this awesome family picture!


I hope everyone has a Wonderful Fall and Happy Halloween!
