A Cuppa Cocoa for Pals Paper Arts…

We made a cocoa slider at Camp this week, and the colors matched up with Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge # 148– Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, and Crumb Cake. Here it is with some extra photos…

A Treat for Dynamic Duos…

Good things come in small packages especially if it’s chocolate!  I spent the day making some sweet little treats for friends using the challenge colors from Dynamic Duos # 31 this week- light green and red. These cute little matchbox gifts have a Ghirardelli Square tucked inside!

It’s starting to look like Autumn here in Pittsburgh, PA…

but it will be more comfortable when the humidity that came with the rain makes an exit !! The Paper Players Challenge #111 celebrates the season with a focus on leaves and trees. I made a tea bag holder which is an excellent little gift to say a random thanks to the people who touch our lives everyday like a postal carrier, a bus driver, or the receptionist at the dentist office!
