Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The fourth week of the month is always a Picture Perfect challenge.
I know I'm super LATE in posting these cards... but I have to say that trying to prepare and catch-up after three weekends of vacations/conferences is one of the MOST difficult things I've had to deal with this month! And I'm preparing now for a cruise first thing in November! **NOTE to SELF: do not book vacations and trips all in a row! LOL! Here's a pic of my nieces/nephews from my latest trip last weekend. LOVE these kids!
I loooooooove these cards-- I would love to send each and every one of you these cards! I'm so thankful for you- your love and support, and esp for your prayers! THANK YOU to all of you who have covered Trav and I in prayer. We are still having difficulties... and my heart still hurts. I am doing my best to cling to God during this time-- not easy since I feel like I'm lost and drowning in pain. THANK YOU for covering us!!! Your prayers mean so much to me!!
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love.

And here's a pic of my mom/dad and brothers. The State Park that is in our town holds a Halloween weekend each year, and I was able to witness this crazy event! LOL! Each campsite is decorated to the max!!! And note-- it was SUPER cold! I had two jackets on, a scarf, a hat, and gloves! I am used to 80* weather.... the 30s is way tooooooooooo cold for me! LOL!

I love the cards that I created for today. I reallllllly wanted to use some Goosebumps spray (it's a texture spray) with some leaf stamps/dies... but I went with a CAKS (cute/clean and kind of simple) design. I used some Studio Calico Atlantic papers with leaves from Amy Tangerine's Field House collection. I used the Paper Smooches Thanks Word die along with the Many Thanks stamp set for my card-- LOVE x10000000!
I know this isn't really like the photo-- I only used one leaf and the pic has several. I still love it:)
And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details. This challenge ends November 3rd. I cannot wait to see what you make--I actually can't wait to see what you are inspired by in this photo!!
