No One Freak!

Good morning!
2 posts...
in 2 days?!!
It may be time for a freak out because over about the last year or so...
I think this may be a record! *grin*
And I gotta make this one a quick one because it's homecoming week and the kids are out at half day tomorrow for the parade and festivities...
but for my little guy and the fact that it's also the end of the first 9 weeks...
his school is having a rewards day and so far all I've done this morning is bake and frost 36 cupcakes...
with sprinkles because you know they make or break a cupcake! *wink*
So much for getting back on track with my race training this week...
but I'm posting this and then I've got to go get a quick run in!

So it's the 25th and while the date is permanently seared in my mind as to what it means...
I'm not always so good at getting to play along with PTI's Blog Hop.
I guess I should thank the cupcakes this morning for giving me a few minutes while they baked...
and it was such a beautiful inspiration picture...

Nichole provided sketches and color recipes and I choose the first color palette to work with...

and I kept it extremely very simple...
I don't think they come any simpler than this...

PTI Blog Hop 9/14

I used the leaves from Phrase Play #7 because they reminded me of the basket...
and cutting them in silver shimmer cardstock gave them more of a galvanized look.
I cut the smallest rectangle from Stitching Rectangles because it reminded me of the tag on the sweater and I stamped the sentiment from Communique Curves in Enchanted Evening.
A few simple buttons from Bitty Button Stack in Autumn Rose for the berries...
and then adhered it all onto a Sweet Blush card base.
extremely very simple!

And now I'm off for a quick run!
Since one little guy has scouts, one big guy has football and one daughter is working on floats...
I'll be almost alone tonight and can hop around to see what everyone else was able to come up with this beautiful inspiration...
see you then!
