Weekly Challenge #240
"Birthday Leaves for Artoo"
"Happy 5th Birthday Artoo!!!" This passed weekend Laura, The Diva's youngest son had a 5th birthday celebration!!! It is always so nice to see her updates with her children and family, on her blog. I think with all that celebrating, though, Artoo ended up getting sick. So, lots of well wishes are going out to the birthday boy!!! Hope you feel better soon!!! :0)
As a part of Artoo's birthday fun, he and his little celebrators were playing in the leaves outside. So that inspired Laura to give us a challenge surrounding leaves. Her challenge is to use colors of fall, tangles that look like leaves, tangled leaf zia's and/or anything that is fall inspired. I just love fall, and these kind of challenges just warm my heart. The colors, the smells, the feeling in the air,........everything about fall, I LOVE!!!!
Last year I had quite a lot of fun tangling on real leaves. I think I ended up flattening and drying out about 50 leaves from last year, to work on for future projects. (It's so hard to pass up a perfect leaf that has fallen on the ground, and not pick it up.) Anyway, if you'd like take a peak at my sister blog, Call it What You Quill, HERE, you will see leaves I tangled last year.
