Just Because

Fall is here! Well, according to the calendar it is. I'm enjoying bright sunny warm weather. However my card is a fall card with a touch of Summer thrown in. The digi is from (From the heart) Inspiration for their free digi of the month challenge.     Bobbing for apples... I think this is such a cute digi.

I used Copics and SU pens and color pencils.The butterfly is SU and the paper is from the Venetian Romance designer series paper. After coloring the apples, I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by...

Title Needed

I was given a challenge to do a layout about me and what I like to do. I have many things I like to do; read,  play on the computer and a variety needle work. Two things that make this challenge very hard for me; making a page about me and a title. The "what I like to do" is the easy part. I like to knit, crochet, cross stitch and read. For my page, I decide on the crochet, since that is what I have been doing these past few months. As I got pictures of some of my projects, it went through my mind as to what I would do with my page(s) after I had finished them. There is no album about me and never will be. I could just toss them out after posting, then it came to mind as I worked with the pictures where I could put these pages. With that decided, I needed a title. I still don't have a title, can you help me?

My title page. Nothing is adhered permanently except for the border on the bottom. Between the little picture and the checked throw will be the words
"from this to this in three weeks"

The multicolored throw is still in process. It has about an hour's work to complete it. It needs one side to be finish off. I hate to do borders and hate to hide and clip yarn ends, so they get to this point and I walk away. 

Here is page two.The red, blue, brown and yellow blanket (yes, its yellow not white) took me three years to finish. I worked on it only when we went camping. Back in June I decided that it needed to be completed. Now its done, cleaned and blocked and looking for a home.

Everything on these two pages were hand crocheted by me. The baby items were made for my grandson you see pictured. Have you guessed where these two pages are going? Isn't he an adorable baby? He is one month old in that picture, today he is 13 and stands 6' 3". And he's still adorable.

That's my challenge layout and it needs a title.

If you got this far, thanks for visiting.
 Take care
