Perseverance (layout 345)

this week has been a rough week with sickness, for three weeks my husband has been sick (viral so no antibiotics) but this week my son started to get it and last night he had it full board (hence why i'm updating this morning).

Yesterday morning while my son was relaxing on the couch watching Cars (favorite movie watches it atleast once a day) I got to go play and created the following layout:

I created this layout based on Sue Sykes sketch for November's Canadian Scrapbooker Sketchy challenge:
November 2014 Sketch
And based my colours based on PaperCrafter's Corner Magazine Monday Week 75:
Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 75 Inspiration Piece (image)

I was inspired by the magazine with the ombre background (which I made using gelatos, water and a paint brush) and the fall colours (using bo bunny apple cider paper and autumn song noteworthy). Other supplies used were recollections (alphas) and we r memory  keepers (enamel shapes warm).

I am quite happy with the way this turned out and although the photos were not taken in the fall it works since they work with the colour of the bike and there are still leaves on the ground since winter hit much too soon last year so was not able to rake them all up.

I am also sharing a picture of my wrap-around porch (which I'm not going to lie is a major reason we bought our house) it is larger on the one side that we have enough room for our extra large patio table and is perfect for entertaining summer parties and guests:

I have some more excitement to share!!! A couple of weeks ago I entered a contest with PaperCrafter's Corner and I won the Authentique prize pack. I am happy to say that it came in the mail yesterday and the wonderful people at Authentique were so sorry that they mailed my prize late that they added some extra goodies (items on left side of photo) as an apology. I cannot wait to start playing with them; however, I think my favorite part is they added a package of their 8x10 ready to frame radiant prints and I cannot wait to get a frame and hang one in my son's room and when we move into the new house (whenever that may be) the others will hang in his playroom!!! Thank you to Authentique and PCC!!!! 

You still have until tomorrow (sunday) to submit your entries for this week's Magazine Monday:
