CR84FN 22

Hello!  I hope you are having as good a weekend as I am.  It was a beautiful 78 sunny skies and a few white fluffy clouds in the sky.  My husband, son and I went for a walk on the trail this morning.  We walked a good 3 to 4 miles.  The wind was gently blowing and the sun felt so great on my skin.  I even got a little red on my face.  It took us about an hour an a half to walk that trail and back home again.  I can do that every day...weather permitting.  With all the grey days and rain we have had lately, this was a welcome surprise.

I have a card to share with you for this weeks colors at CR84FN.  Since it is a new month that also means we have a new Guest Designer.  It is the wonderfully talented Silke Ledlow.  She is one of my dear sweet blog friends and I am happy to have her join us.


 It was my other sweet and wonderfully talented blog friend Lynn  from Millers Ink birthday last week.  So I sent her this in the mail for her birthday.  She already received it, so I am safe showing it.  I will also mention she has been a great supporter of the CR84FN challenge.  She has played pretty much from the beginning. 


I used my new PTI set Button Boutique and paper from 3 different companies.  I keep all my scraps of paper in a basket and that is what I reach for first before cutting up a new piece.  One of the best ideas I have ever had.  I started that years ago when I was scrapbooking and used my Cricut.  They came handy for little pieces.

 Look at this beautiful graphic Mona's sweet hubby put together for you to be inspired by.


Don't forget to stop by and see what the other girls have created for your viewing pleasure.

It's good to read you had a wonderful time. We had lovely weather too; it's lovely to be outside and enjoy the sun :)
Oops a bit off track :).
This is such a lovely way to use your scraps.
After you told me that you always start diggin' in your scraps basket I started doing the same....thank you so much for the advice.

And before I forget to tell you; these scraps are a match made in heaven. Love that button boutique set from PTI!
