Delight

It is Saturday and I am happy. I only have to work 3.5 hours (well that's the plan as of now, let's see if that changes when I get there) and then I have the rest of the day off. Yesterday I did ABSOLUTELY nothing and it felt great. I finished this LO and then I turned off all the lights and laid on the couch and watched old episodes of Monk. :-) Does anyone else watch that show?

So yesterday I felt not obligated to get anything done around the house, really that meant no homework. I have a take home test to do but it isn't due until next Thursday so I have time. I did dishes and laundry but that's it. So I wanted to play along with a challenge. I saw the challenge at Sketchy Thursdays and I totally wanted to play along. :-)

I was lucky enough to receive a goodie box from Authentique last week filled with some of their new collections. I was so happy when I received the box. I have been waiting to have time to craft with it all.

So all the supplies for this LO with the exception of the frame which is from the October kit is from Authentique. I used paper from the Splendid collection and Free Bird.

Ever since I had a couple Authentique collections in my August kit I have been in love with their products. Their papers are such high quality and their embellishments are so cute!!! LOVE it ALL!!!

Now I would like to point out that tearing/distressing the edges of the paper was really tough for me to do. Not the physical tearing part but the fact that I was tearing the paper. LOL! I am usually a clean and simple straight line crafter. But I really like the way this turned out.

Ok, well I just realized the time and I need to head out. I hope you enjoy and stop by tomorrow for more inspiration from our Delightful Designers using the October kit. :-)

Superb LO, lots of fun elements to look at.

I like Monk too - my brother introduced me to that show.

I love Monk! I took an online quiz a few years ago and I scored "more Monkish than most"…LOL! This did not come as a shock to anyone who knows me and how particular I can be. I have season 1 on dvd…I may play them while I do my Urge to Purge today :)

Your LO is fun and happy. I have to say I love the 12 x12 Authentique papers you had in the August kit. The quality and texture are divine! I saw a small pad of the some papers in a craft store of the same papers, but they lacked the weight and texture of the 12x12 that you had in your kit.
