Good morning, everyone!

Well, it's the last day of the Holiday weekend, and I'm a bit sad.

I always love this weekend because it's a time to be thankful, to be with family. It's not usually a big sit-down, formal dinner for our family so I never really feel stressed on Thanksgiving. I love that it also encompasses shopping for presents and putting up the Christmas tree (if I haven't already done so). Why, the local radio station even starts playing Xmas songs. I know that some people find that annoying, but I don't. LOL!

I also got some crafting done this weekend as my hubbster was off. Yippee!

I'm playing along with the Farm Fresh Blog's Monday Fun-Day: A Simple Sketch. It's done by my new bloggy friend, the wonderful Margie. I actually made it more CAS (I know, I know...so unlike me!!!).

I used Amelia from the TGF Ahoy set. I used up some stash for the DP- the black with polka dots is from KI Memories (Love, Elsie) and the main one is from Imagination Project.

I really like how I got to practice coloring pleats here :).

Hope you enjoy the rest of the day! I'll see you back here tomorrow!

This is so sweet Rinne! I like the ribbon and flower you used and the way you matched the dress to it. I love this time of year and don't get sad until after New Years day. In Minnesota Jan/Feb and March are so cold and grey it makes for a very long winter, ick! lol!
