Today's the 17th...
and you know what that brings each month...
Waltzingmouse Blog Party...

I'm going to keep this short because there's always so much to see and I don't want to keep you...
but the theme this month is THE GREAT OUTDOORS and there are so many directions you can take with this one...
but I decided to keep it simple and whimsical...

told you!
I used Waltzingmouse Gingham and Co. to create some gingham hills...
and I thought Teeny Trees was the perfect set for some whimsical little trees in my scene...
once I added the the sun, clouds and rainbow...
all dies from Lil' Inkers...
my scene was complete!
The sentiment is from WMS Fancy Phrases...
a perfect little sentiment set...
and along with 3 black gems...
I was done!
Easy peasy!

don't worry if you don't have your project complete yet...
this party goes for 24 hours...
and you can get all the details on Claire's blog here!
And if you need a little help in getting started...
try the new Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge...
it's a fabulous sketch this week from the ever talented DT member Sandie Dunne!

I can't wait to see what you came up with for both of these!

I'm hosting bookclub tonight...
we read Joshilyn Jackson's A Different Kind of Pretty and I'm hoping (like crossing my fingers, eyes, hair and toes!) that we read Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl next month because even though I've already read it...
I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a good suspense because it is one kind of ride!
But if you don't see me for a bit...
don't worry...
you know where I'm at and I'll be along for the party soon...
maybe into the wee hours! :)

And maybe you'll come back tomorrow where I'm going to have an extra special post?
I can warn you though...

but I did get pret-ty craf-ty if I do say so myself!
